    Moyers & Company [#325H] The Truth vs. DC's Propaganda Machine As the exploding crisis in Iraq spotlights once again the tragic record of American policy in the Middle East, Bill Moyers speaks with investigative journalist Charles Lewis, whose new book, "935 Lies: The Future of Truth and the Decline of America's Moral Integrity," details the many government falsehoods that have led us into the current nightmare. Lewis details the deceptions and illusions that have caused "most Americans and their elected representatives to completely ignore facts, logic, and reason in the rush to war." A complicit partner, he says, is a media intent on preserving the status quo and never offending the ruling elite.
    Lewis tells Bill Moyers, "An outrageous thing happened. We lost $2 trillion. More than 100,000 people died. Folks are going to be maimed for life in the tens of thousands, and no one has ever acknowledged that this was a war on a lark. It was a complete war of choice, because a certain little faction wanted to do it and they orchestrated it. Did they make statements that weren't true? The answer is yes."
    He concludes, "If we don't have information that we can trust, and we actually can't even agree on what the truth is, forget it. It's over. We're not going to have a country. It's going to hit an iceberg here. And the question is not, 'Will that happen,' it's 'How soon will it happen?' We have a problem. Until we solve it, we're staring into the abyss. I'm convinced of it."
    Charles Lewis is a former producer for "60 Minutes" and founder of the Center for Public Integrity, one of the world's largest news organizations dedicated to independent, investigative journalism. The recipient of a coveted MacArthur Foundation "genius grant," Lewis was presented PEN USA's First Amendment Award "for expanding the reach of investigative journalism, for his courage in going after a story regardless of whose toes he steps on, and for boldly exercising his freedom of speech and freedom of the press."
    This week's broadcast begins with a Moyers essay on the foresight of the legendary Lawrence of Arabia, who, after the defeat of the Ottoman Empire in World War I, predicted the trap in which the West would fall attempting to interfere in the Middle East.

    KQED NEWSROOM [#133H] Net Neutrality Picks Up Speed, 150 Years of Yosemite, Redwood Burl Poaching
    Net Neutrality Picks Up Speed
    Earlier this week, demonstrators protested at Google in Mountain View. They want the Internet to remain open, without access fees or censorship by Internet service providers. The concept is known as "net neutrality." The issue is heating up now because the FCC is again considering new rules for the Internet, and the public comment period ends July 15. The issue gained high speed momentum after comedian John Oliver highlighted it recently on his HBO show, "Last Week Tonight with John Oliver." It generated so many comments to the FCC that the agency's website crashed.

    • Laura Sydell, NPR

    150 Years of Yosemite
    When President Abraham Lincoln signed the Yosemite Grant Act in 1864, he set aside the first public lands in the country for "use, resort and recreation." An exhibit opening June 30 at the California Historical Society examines the human stories that are part of Yosemite's history -- 150 years of beauty, exploration, environmentalism and even tragedy. Historian Dr. Anthea Hartig shares some of these stories with Scott Shafer.

    Redwood Burl Poaching
    Last week, a northern California man was convicted of felony vandalism and ordered to pay more than $11,000 for stealing part of a tree. He's the second person to be convicted this month of chopping burl off a redwood in a national park. Burls are knobby, bulbous growths often found near the base of the trunk, and are prized for their beautiful color and grain. One burl can sell for hundreds to thousands of dollars. But burls are also crucial to the long-term survival of redwood groves and their theft from park areas is illegal. From our partners at UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism, producer Sally Schilling looks at why this environmental crime is prompting alarm and a crackdown. (*Correction: We misspelled the name of the videographer in the production credits. The correct spelling is Courtney Quirin.)

    Hitler On Trial In the summer of 1931, a young lawyer called Hans Litten put rising political star, Adolf Hitler, in the witness box of a Berlin court. He wanted to expose Hitler's hypocrisy and secret commitment to violence and shatter the Nazi party's political respectability. In an audacious and hostile cross-examination, Hitler was forced to defend his beliefs, his ambitions, his methods and the essence of Nazism, in open court. Litten wanted to challenge the public as Germany and the rest of Europe seemed to be sleep-walking to fascism. If Litten's warnings had been taken seriously, Hitler's financial support might well have collapsed. There would have been no Nazi election victory. No Reichstag fire, no Third Reich, no Final Solution. Litten didn't win, but Hitler never forgot and once the Nazis were in power, Litten was arrested and imprisoned in Dachau concentration camp where he ultimately committed suicide. A brave and complex individual, Litten was left-wing, Jewish, and passionately committed to the idea of justice. This documentary explores Litten's personal story while also examining the broader historical and ethical debate. It discovers the consequences of Litten's heroism both for himself and for those closest to him, tracking his tragic journey from court room to suicide. duration 59:38   STEREO TVPG
