    THIS WEEK in Northern California [#2436H] July 12, 2013 Guest Host: Thuy Vu.
    BAY BRIDGE OPENING IN QUESTION - Two days after transportation officials announced that the Bay Bridge opening would be delayed until December, an independent review panel proposed a surprise interim fix that would allow the span to open on Labor Day or sooner. The plan calls for installing steel plates - shims - in gaps between bearings to prevent them from swiveling.
    ASIANA CRASH UPDATE - new revelations about the Asiana Airlines Flight 214 crash at San Francisco International Airport.
    PRISONER HUNGER STRIKE - Gov. Brown has gone to the US Supreme Court to fight a lower court's order requiring the release of nearly 10,000 prisoners to ease overcrowding in California prisons. Meanwhile, thousands of inmates continue to refuse meals in the largest prison hunger strike in state history. Protestors are targeting prison conditions, especially for inmates held in long-term isolation in "Security Housing Units" around the state. Prior hunger strikes prompted some policy changes but many prisoners claim they haven't gone far enough.
    CITY COLLEGE OF SAN FRANCISCO BATTLE - Rising concerns about the possible closure next year of City College of San Francisco erupted in a protest this week by supporters of the embattled school. The Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges earlier this month said the college did not meet enough of the fourteen recommendations to maintain its accreditation. Without that license to operate, the college - one of the largest in the country - could receive no public funds and would have to close. This week state officials stripped the elected Board of Trustees of its authority and appointed a "special trustee" with unilateral powers.
    HOUSING CONTROVERSY IN MARIN - After growing resistance by some Marin County residents to a regional plan for dense housing and transportation development in city cores, the board of supervisors withdrew two communities from so-called "Priority Development Areas." The long range development blueprint called Plan Bay Area includes affordable housing. Opposition by Marin residents has grown increasingly heated as some fear they'll succumb to "cookie-cutter" development patterns and lose local control.

    Moyers & Company [#227H] Distracted from Democracy * Across the world - Greece, Spain, Brazil, Egypt - citizens are turning angrily to their governments to demand economic fair play and equality. But here in America, with few exceptions, the streets and airwaves remain relatively silent. In a country as rich and powerful as America, why is there so little outcry about the ever-increasing, deliberate divide between the very wealthy and everyone else?
    This week, media scholar Marty Kaplan points to a number of forces keeping these issues and affected citizens in the dark - especially our well-fed appetite for media distraction. An award-winning columnist and head of the Norman Lear Center at the University of Southern California, Kaplan also talks about the appropriate role of journalists as advocates for truth.
    * Later on the show, acclaimed historian Gary May puts the recent Supreme Court decision gutting the Voting Rights Act into historical perspective, noting it's just one moment in a long, ongoing struggle to ensure voting rights for every American. A specialist in American political, diplomatic and social history, May's latest book is Bending Toward Justice: The Voting Rights Act and the Transformation of American Democracy.
