  • If voters are relying on local television news to
    help them make decisions in this important
    election year, recent studies show that they may
    be left in the dark. By some estimates, more than
    half of local news broadcasts may not cover
    politics at all in the weeks before the election,
    and important local races and issues are often
    completely ignored. In a nation where the public
    owns the airwaves, are local stations driving
    corporate profits at the expense of the
    communities they are supposed to serve? David
    Brancaccio takes a hard look at how local
    broadcasters are covering politics. With stations
    expecting record earnings from political ads, the
    program examines the winners and losers in the
    battle for localism and profiles one station that
    is getting it right.
  • Everybody's talking about the 9/11 Commission
    report and what it means for this country's
    security in the future. But for all the talk of a
    bi-partisan effort on getting to the bottom of
    what went wrong on 9/11, partisan and political
    struggles were rife throughout the process. Bill
    Moyers gets the insight of author and political
    analyst Kevin Phillips on the success or failure
    of the commission, and the other news of the
    week, including what Kerry might say at the
    Democratic Convention and the realities of the
    so-called economic recovery. Kevin Phillips was
    the chief political strategist for Richard
    Nixon's victory in 1968 and wrote the bombshell
    book EMERGING REPUBLICAN MAJORITY. Ten years ago
    his best-selling book on the politics of rich and
    poor influenced the 1992 elections and his recent
    WEALTH AND DEMOCRACY A POLITICAL HISTORY OF THE
    AMERICAN RICH looks at how big money and
    political power are the invisible hand in the
    hidden story of the American experience.
  • This Monday when the lights go on in Boston at
    the Democratic convention, speakers will be
    center stage and working hard to deliver messages
    that connect with voters. Analysts say that for
    two decades conservatives have done a much better
    job than progressives to frame and talk about
    their values and some say the convention could be
    a make or break moment in the election. Do words
    really have the power to win not just hearts and
    minds, but votes? David Brancaccio gets a few
    words on the subject from world-renowned linguist
    George Lakoff. Dr. Lakoff is a founder of the
    Rockridge Institute, a new political think tank
    set up to reframe the terms of political debate
    to make a progressive vision more persuasive and
    influential. Lakoff is a professor at UC Berkeley
    and is the author of 8 books, including the
    influential MORAL POLITICS HOW LIBERALS AND
    CONSERVATIVES THINK and most recently DON'T THINK
    OF AN ELEPHANT! WHAT EVERY AMERICAN SHOULD KNOW
    ABOUT VALUES AND THE FRAMING WARS, which is due
    out next month.
