Marc Ash Interviews Bill Moyers - Part III: "The Net@Risk"

t r u t h o u t | Interview
Monday 16 October 2006

The future of the Internet is up for grabs. Last year, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) effectively eliminated net neutrality rules, which ensured that every content creator on the Internet - from big-time media concerns to backroom bloggers - had equal opportunity to make their voice heard. Now, large and powerful corporations are lobbying Washington to turn the World Wide Web into what critics call a "toll road," threatening the equitability that has come to define global democracy's newest forum. In Part III of our interview, Marc Ash Spoke to Bill Moyers about this important issue.

Moyers on America: "The Net@Risk" airs Wednesday, October 18, on your local PBS station.

Part 2 of my interview with Bill Moyers looks at the second in Moyers's series of October specials, "Is God Green?" There's a growing concern among American Evangelicals: global warming. The right wing of American politics may no longer be able to count on Evangelicals to rubber-stamp their environmental polices. Moyers had a lot to say about the upcoming broadcast. - ma/TO

Tuesday 03 October 2006

Recently I had the opportunity to sit down and chat with Bill Moyers about his surprising October documentaries, the state of American journalism, and what we can all do to make a difference. Interesting stuff.

"Capitol Crimes," part one of the series "Moyers on America," follows the Abramoff money trail. If you want to know how Abramoff did it, what part DeLay played, who's getting hurt and who profited - make sure you're sitting down, and watch "Capitol Crimes," airing October 4th on PBS. This documentary is sobering.

Parts two and three of my interview will examine the second and third broadcasts in the series, "Is God Green?" airing October 11th, and "The Net at Risk," airing October 18th. Stay tuned. —Marc Ash
