    Moyers & Company [#116H] Big Money, Big Media, Big Trouble Big money and big media have coupled to create a 'Disney World' of democracy in which TV shows, televised debates, even news coverage is being dumbed down, just as the volume is being turned up. The result is a public certainly more entertained, but less informed and personally involved than they should be, says Marty Kaplan, director of USC's Norman Lear Center and an entertainment industry veteran. This weekend, Bill Moyers talks with Kaplan about how taking news out of the journalism box and placing it in the entertainment box is hurting democracy and allowing special interest groups to manipulate the system.
    "It's all about combat. If every political issue is [represented by] combat between two polarized sides, then you get great television because people are throwing food at each other," Kaplan tells Moyers. "And you have an audience that hasn't a clue at the end of the story, which is why you'll hear, 'Well, we'll have to leave it there.' The problem is that there's not that much information out there if you're an ordinary citizen. You can ferret it out, but it ought not be like that in a democracy," Kaplan says. "Education and journalism were supposed to, according to our founders, inform our public and make democracy work."
    Later on the show, Bill talks about Florida Rep. Allen West and shocking modern-day McCarthyism. Wasn't this lesson already learned?

USDA officials assure consumers the food chain is safe while they continue to investigate whether any other animals are infected.
    * The California Department of Corrections rolled out a plan this week that would cut prison spending by billions of dollars, end federal court oversight and improve operation of the nation's largest state prison system. The changes are largely due to realignment, a program which redirects low-level offenders to local jails.

    Austin City Limits [#803] Roy Orbison This live version from the August 5, 1982, telecast has been digitally remastered and edited. Roy's appearance was a milestone in the 25-year history of Austin City Limits. He became the first bona fide legend to step onto their stage. His performance took the show to a new level, a larger audience and the status of being a nationally recognized television program. After making a few live appearances at that time, this proved to be the catalyst that brought Roy back to the forefront of the popular music scene. Roy lived up to his reputation of mystique and intrigue. He had just come out of semi-retirement, and not many people had seen him perform live in years. This was certainly his first major performance on television - a full hour - since his comeback began. It was a rare event. From the moment he hit the stage, the audience was on its feet. Many of his songs started with barely a whisper; then they began to vibrate and build, getting more and more intense, until finally, they soared off into the blue to the cheers of the crowd. In the course of the evening, he received more standing ovations than any other performer on any other show. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG
