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


t r u t h o u t | Interview

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

Moyers on America: "Is God Green?" airs on October 11 on your local PBS station. Check local listings for the time in your area.

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

Biden In Tokyo: Killing Strategic Ambiguity
Could it have been just another case of bumbling poor judgment, the mind softened as the mouth opened? A question was put to US President Joe Biden, visiting Tokyo and standing beside Japan’s Prime Minister Fumio Kishida: “You didn’t want to get involved in the Ukraine conflict militarily for obvious reasons. Are you willing to get involved militarily to defend Taiwan if it comes to that?” The answer: “Yes. That’s a commitment we made.”.. More>>

Dunne Speaks: Robertson's Budget Gamble On Treasury
The popular test of the success or failure of Grant Robertson’s fifth Budget will be its impact on the soaring cost of living. In today’s climate little else matters. Because governments come and governments go – about every six to seven years on average since 1945 – getting too focused on their long-term fiscal aspirations is often pointless... More>>

The US Supreme Court Chief Justice was furious.

The Conversation: Cheaper food comes with other costs – why cutting GST isn't the answer

As New Zealand considers the removal of the goods and services tax (GST) from food to reduce costs for low income households, advocates need to consider the impact cheap food has on the environment and whether there are better options to help struggling families... More>>
