Boston Tea Bailout

Reports that the Tea Act lowered the price of tea, and states that its purpose was to bailout the East India Company. The segment also busts other myths of the Boston Tea Party, and explains that those who threw the tea off the ships were wearing disguises not intentionally meant to give them the appearance of American Indians.
