However, getting Bergen to cough up useful information is difficult for Julianna to achieve. Mary is asked by the Defense Department to intervene in an exposé on faulty military vehicles being written by journalist Martha Kopps, who happens to be an old school colleague of Mary's. Martha refuses to compromise her story, she stating the Defense Department is aware of the problem and is doing nothing to resolve it. Despite help from Mary, the Defense Department does get to Martha's publisher stating that the story needs to be quashed for national security purposes.
