SKU:19913724
Release Date:04/17/2012
In Moyers on America, veteran journalist Bill Moyers examines issues in the news, ranging from political corruption to the future of the Internet. Capitol Crimes is a look at the Jack Abramoff scandal, detailing how the lobbyist rose to power in Washington, D.C. and the crimes that eventually led him to plead guilty to corruption charges. Following the documentary, Moyers leads a discussion about the scandal that features American Enterprise Institute scholar Norman Ornstein and author Thomas Frank (What's the Matter With Kansas?). Also included is an episode from Bill Moyers' Journal (Buying the War) that looks at coverage of the run-up to the Iraq War by the mainstream media, whom critics have slammed for not sufficiently challenging Bush administration claims about Iraq's possession of WMDs and its possible links to Al Qaeda. Commenting are Dan Rather, Tim Russert, Bob Simon, Phil Donahue, former CNN president Walter Isaacson, and John Walcott, Jonathan Landay, and Warren Strobel of McClatchy Newspapers.
