    KQED NEWSROOM [#126H] Concerns Over Crude by Rail, the Push Back Against Airbnb and an Interview With Gov. Jerry Brown
    Concerns Over Crude by Rail
    Proposals to transport crude oil on railroads throughout Northern California are fueling worries about health and safety. Just this week, a train carrying oil derailed in Virginia, sending a huge fireball into the air and forcing evacuations. Locally, many officials and residents from Davis to Pittsburg are opposed to plans to increase crude oil rail shipments.

    An Interview With Gov. Jerry Brown
    Gov. Jerry Brown is weeks away from what is likely the final campaign of a political career that spans nearly half a century. He is seeking an unprecedented fourth term — 40 years after he first won the job. The Democrat is embracing something he famously rejected in the 1970s: tradition and the long view of California. KQED senior political editor John Myers caught up with Brown at the Historic Governor's Mansion in Sacramento.

    Moyers & Company [#317H] Stuck in the Internet Slow Lane? For better or worse, the Internet has become democracy's information superhighway, an endless bounty of valuable data and insight or the biggest timewaster of all time. And for years, the government has upheld the principle of "net neutrality," the belief that everyone should have equal access to the web without preferential treatment.
    But now, Tom Wheeler, chairman of the Federal Communications Commission and a former cable and telecommunications top gun, is circulating potential new rules that reportedly would put a price tag on climbing aboard the Internet. The largest and richest providers, giant corporations such as Verizon and Comcast - in mid-takeover of Time Warner Cable - like the idea. They could afford to buy their way to the front of the line. Everyone else - nonprofit groups, startups, the smaller, independent content creators, and everyday users - would have to move to the rear, and the net would be neutral no more.
    This week, Bill Moyers speaks with two keen observers of media and the world of cyberspace. David Carr covers the busy intersection of media with business, government and culture for The New York Times. He writes a popular weekly column, "Media Equation" and is a former editor of alternative newspapers in Washington, DC, and Minneapolis. "The open consumer Web," Carr has written, "has been a motor of American innovation."
    Susan Crawford is a visiting professor at Harvard Law School, contributor to Bloomberg View and author of, Captive Audience: The Telecom Industry and Monopoly Power in the New Gilded Age. The net neutrality uproar, she wrote recently, "is appropriate: In bowing before an onslaught of corporate lobbying the commission has chosen short-term political expediency over the long-term interest of the country."

Bush in 1989, and named acting chairman by President Bill Clinton in 1993.
    John Snow, served as the 73rd secretary of the Treasury working closely with President George W. Bush.
