  • 1:00 am
    Moyers & Company [#141H] Plutocracy Rising The One Percent is not only increasing their share of wealth - they're using it to spread millions among political candidates who serve their interests. Example: Goldman Sachs, which gave more money than any other major American corporation to Barack Obama in 2008, is switching alliances this year; their employees have given $900,000 both to Mitt Romney's campaign and to the pro-Romney super PAC Restore Our Future. Why? Because, says the Wall Street Journal, the Goldman Sachs gang felt betrayed by President Obama's modest attempts at financial reform.
    But even more audacious than opening your wallet to trade cash for influence is strong-arming your employees to vote as you say. Such intimidation is out in the open, from the Murray Energy CEO who reportedly made his workers spend unpaid time at a pro-Romney rally; to David and Charles Koch, who sent anti-Obama and pro-Romney materials to the 45,000 employees of their subsidiary Georgia Pacific; to ASG Solutions boss Arthur Allen, who sent an intimidating email to his employees.
    This week Bill is joined by two veteran journalists to discuss how the super-rich have willfully confused their self-interest with America's interest. Guests are Chrystia Freeland, author of the new book Plutocrats: The Rise of the New Global Super Rich and the Fall of Everyone Else; and Rolling Stone magazine's Matt Taibbi, who regularly shines his spotlight on scandals involving big business and government.

    Monarchy: The Royal Family at Work [#101H] The State Visit (Part 1) How do American hosts entertain a monarch who has visited nearly every country on earth and dined with 10 U.S. presidents over the course of her 55-year reign? "The State Visit" follows the elaborate preparations as four localities get ready for a visit from the queen. At the site of the United States' first permanent British settlement in Jamestown, Virginia, the chief archeologist brushes up on royal etiquette. In Williamsburg, Virginia, nervous hotel staff make sure they prepare Her Majesty's room to an exacting standard of perfection. The White House hosts the first and only white-tie dinner of the administration and plans for every contingency, including canine misbehavior. In the royal household, they've invited celebrity photographer Annie Leibovitz for a formal photo shoot with the queen, although Leibovitz's request to seat Her Majesty on a horse inside the state apartments proves a bit too much. In exclusive interviews, Leibovitz shares her desire to capture the essence of monarchy, First Lady Laura Bush personally leads a private tour of the White House and the queen's press secretary reveals the challenges of keeping up with her boss. Behind the scenes and at her side from beginning to end, "The State Visit" shows what it takes to plan and execute an official visit from the queen. duration 56:05   STEREO TVPG
