EDIT
Moyers & Company: Fighting for Fair Play on TV and Taxes
AIRED:
With the 2012 campaign season moving from primary to election mode, Bill and master media decoder Kathleen Hall Jamieson take a closer look at the role media misinformation will play in the Obama vs. Romney TV ad slugfest. Jamieson, who runs the Annenberg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania, discusses the sharp increase in deceptive advertising in the 2012 race, and equally-alarming new obstacles to campaign ad transparency.Bill also talks to RoseAnn DeMoro, who heads the largest registered nurses union in the country. DeMoro is championing the Robin Hood Tax, a small government levy the financial sector would pay on commercial transactions like stocks and bonds. The money generated, which some estimate to be as much as $350 billion annually, could be used for social programs and job creation - ultimately to people who, without a doubt, need it more than the banks do. Though the power and influence of Big Banking is intimidating, DeMoro and her organization have an inspiring history of defeating some of the toughest opponents in government and politics.moreless
