Episode Summary

EDIT
Moyers & Company: Where Do Movies End and Politics Begin?
AIRED:
How does pop culture not only reflect, but influence political culture? Historian and culture critic Neal Gabler joins Bill to discuss how representations of heroism in movies shape our expectations of a U.S. President, and how our real-world candidates are packaged into superficial, two-dimensional personas designed to appeal to both the electorate and the media. Next, Bill talks with acclaimed poet and Poetry Magazine editor Chris Wiman about how finding true love and being diagnosed with a rare and incurable blood cancer reignited his religious passion as well as his creative expression. Finally, is it fair for parents to opt out of vaccinations for their children on the basis of religion or philosophy -- and how many pay the price for that decision? Bill Moyers weighs the value of personal liberty versus the greater public health.moreless
