Research Shows Hitler Had Even More Flaws

A retired Bavarian notary and tax expert has stated that Hitler’s tax records (found in a Munich archive) show that Hitler spent years evading taxes, and owed German authorities 405,000 Reichsmarks —equivalent to $8 million today.

Being a history major, CNB does see some merit in researching all aspects of one of history's most important historical figures (in this case, the "bad citizen" aspect, versus the already-researched "megalomaniac human face of evil" aspect). However, only a slow news day explains why this was one of MSNBC's top stories.
