12:00 amMoyers & Company [#128H] America's "Sacrifice Zones" * There are forgotten corners of this country where Americans are trapped in endless cycles of poverty, powerlessness, and despair as a direct result of capitalistic greed. Journalist Chris Hedges calls these places "sacrifice zones," and joins Bill this week to explore how areas like Camden, New Jersey; Immokalee, Florida; and parts of West Virginia suffer while the corporations that plundered them thrive. "These are areas that have been destroyed for quarterly profit. We're talking about environmentally destroyed, communities destroyed, human beings destroyed, families destroyed," Hedges tells Bill. "It's the willingness on the part of people who seek personal enrichment to destroy other human beings. And because the mechanisms of governance can no longer control them, there is nothing now within the formal mechanisms of power to stop them from creating essentially a corporate oligarchic state." Hedges also makes the case that journalists "take sides," describing the difference between truth and news. "The really great reporters - and I've seen them in all sorts of news organizations - are management headaches because they care about truth at the expense of their own career," he says.
* Also in the broadcast, a Bill Moyers Essay on how the failure of The DISCLOSE Act should bring anything BUT closure to the fight for government transparency. duration 56:46 STEREO TVG
