4:30 pmMoyers & Company [#304H] David Simon: My Country Is A Horror Show! David Simon, journalist and creator of the TV series The Wire and Treme, talks with Bill Moyers about the divide between the rich and poor and the crisis of capitalism in America. Just days after President Barack Obama's annual State of the Union address, it's a reality check from someone who artfully uses television drama to report on the state of America from an entirely different perspective - the bottom up.
It was a speech Simon made last November at the Festival of Dangerous Ideas in Sydney, Australia, that inspired Moyers to ask him to make this week's appearance. His remarks at the Sydney Opera House, titled "There Are Now Two Americas. My Country Is a Horror Show," went viral and reverberated through cyberspace.
"America is a country that is now utterly divided when it comes to its society, its economy, its politics," Simon said. "That may be the ultimate tragedy of capitalism in our time, that it has achieved its dominance without regard to a social compact, without being connected to any other metric for human progress... And that notion that capital is the metric, that profit is the metric by which we're going to measure the health of our society is one of the fundamental mistakes of the last 30 years."
"Are we all in this together or are we all not?" Either we realize that everyone must pull together so that no one is left behind, Simon concluded, "Or we're going to keep going the way we're going, at which point there's going to be enough people standing on the outside of this mess that somebody's going to pick up a brick, because you know when people get to the end there's always the brick. I hope we go for the first option but I'm losing faith." duration 26:46 STEREO TVRE

Janet Napolitano Leads U.S. Olympic Delegation
Next week University of California President Janet Napolitano will lead the U.S. delegation to the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. As former Secretary of Homeland Security, Napolitano is well suited to the job, given heightened concerns about terrorism at the Games and Russia's decision to grant asylum to NSA leaker Edward Snowden. The two countries are also at odds over Russia's harsh stance against LGBT rights, and the 10-member delegation that Napolitano is leading has three openly gay athletes, including tennis great Billie Jean King and ice skater Brian Boitano. Scott Shafer sat down with Napolitano to discuss the Olympics and her day job as head of UC.

Veteran filmmaker Stanley Nelson's documentary is the first feature-length film about this courageous band of civil-rights activists. Gaining access to influential figures on both sides of the issue, Nelson chronicles a chapter of American history that stands as an astonishing testament to the accomplishment of youth and what can result from the incredible combination of personal conviction and the courage to organize against all odds. duration 1:56:16 STEREO TVPG-VL (Secondary audio: DVI)
