    THIS WEEK in Northern California [#2417H] February 8, 2013 Guest Host: Scott Shafer.
    News Panel:
    MEDICAL MARIJUANA - Medical marijuana advocates argued this week before the California Supreme Court that cities do not have the power to ban pot dispensaries, saying that it undermines the 1996 voter-approved state law allowing cannabis for medical use. Opponents say the law's language is vague. The case has sweeping ramifications for local governments across the state and in the Bay Area, where dozens of cities have enacted dispensary bans.
    SILICON VALLEY BOOM - Community members, elected officials, executives and civic leaders convene in San Jose for this year's State of The Valley Conference, Silicon Valley's annual "town meeting," to assess the outlook for the region. Meanwhile, the annual Silicon Valley Index shows jobs, income and IPOs are all on the rise, yet the gap between rich and poor is widening, particularly among some minority groups.
    GREAT WHITE SHARK - California is closer to becoming the first state in the nation to declare great white sharks an endangered species. The Fish and Game Commission voted Wednesday to designate the predator as a candidate for the list, with the final decision pending a year-long review.
    Guests: Peter Hecht, Sacramento Bee; Kara Swisher, All Things Digital; and Paul Rogers, San Jose Mercury News.

    Moyers & Company [#205H] Who's Widening America's Digital Divide * America has a wide digital divide - high-speed Internet access is available only to those who can afford it, at prices much higher and speeds much slower in the US than they are around the world.
    But neither has to be the case, says Susan Crawford, former special assistant to President Obama for science, technology and innovation, and author of Captive Audience: The Telecom Industry and Monopoly Power in the New Gilded Age. Crawford joins Bill to discuss how our government has allowed a few powerful media conglomerates to put profit ahead of the public interest - rigging the rules, raising prices, and stifling competition. As a result, Crawford says, all of us are at the mercy of the biggest business monopoly since Standard Oil in the first Gilded Age a hundred years ago. "The rich are getting gouged, the poor are very often left out, and this means that we're creating, yet again, two Americas, and deepening inequality through this communications inequality," Crawford tells Bill.
    * Also on the show, journalist Nick Turse describes his unprecedented efforts to compile a complete and compelling account of the Vietnam War's horror as experienced by all sides, including innocent civilians who were sucked into its violent vortex. Turse, who devoted 12 years to tracking down the true story of Vietnam, unlocked secret troves of documents, interviewed officials and veterans - including many accused of war crimes - and traveled throughout the Vietnamese countryside talking with eyewitnesses to create his book, Kill Anything That Moves: The Real American War in Vietnam.
