    Moyers & Company [#137H] Elections for Sale One of the reasons Moyers & Company frequently returns to the theme of money and politics is because it's absolutely necessary to do so. Nothing corrupts our political system more than the ability of the rich and influential to spend limitless amounts of money - often in secret - with the intention of creating preferred political outcomes. And far from being a regulator of campaign finances, our political funding laws - aided by a corporate-friendly Supreme Court and self-interested politicians - only facilitate the process of empowering the few while subjugating the many.
    Few understand the ways money moves in and out of our political system than campaign finance reform advocate Trevor Potter. A former chairman of the Federal Election Commission and founding president of the Campaign Legal Center, Potter was Stephen Colbert's chief advisor when Colbert formed his own super PAC and 501 (c)(4) in a clever effort to expose the potential for chicanery behind each.
    This week, Bill and Potter discuss how American elections are bought and sold, who covers the cost, and how the rest of us pay the price. "I can assure you that if someone is spending millions of dollars to elect the candidate, the candidate knows where that money is coming from. There's nothing illegal about telling them, but the voters aren't going to know that," Potter tells Bill. "We're creating opportunities for corruption and candidates being beholden to specific private interests because of funding, yet there's no disclosure to the rest of us."
    Also on the show, a Bill Moyers Essay on the bags of money that campaigns drop on consultants and TV ads to affect and distort your point of view.

  • 3:00 am
    Death and the Civil War: American Experience Drawing heavily on This Republic of Suffering, historian and Harvard president Drew Gilpin Faust's acclaimed book, this documentary explores a critical but largely overlooked aspect of the Civil War experience: the immense and varied implications of the war's staggering and unprecedented death toll. The war created a veritable "republic of suffering," as landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted described the wounded and dying arriving at Union hospital ships on the Virginia Peninsula. The shattering death toll transformed hundreds of thousands of individual lives and the life of the nation as well, from its understanding of the rights and responsibilities of citizenship to the profound struggle of a deeply religious culture to reconcile these events with a belief in a benevolent God. The film examines the increasingly lethal years of the war, focusing primarily on several key battles and their corpse-strewn aftermaths, and concludes with a section on the postwar efforts toward reburial and remembrance. It premieres in conjunction with the 150th anniversary of Antietam, the bloodiest one-day battle in American history. duration 1:56:46   STEREO TV14 (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Shiloh: Fiery Trial Compelling recreations and poignant first hand accounts bring to life the Civil War battle author Shelby Foote referred to as "a cauldron of pure hell." Shiloh, fought in south central Tennessee in April 1862, was the first large titanic battle of the war. The Union victory produced the kind of casualties the United States had never experienced, and was a harbinger of the carnage and horror that was to come. The staggering casualties of more than 23-thousand Union and Confederate soldiers sent shockwaves into every home in America,. After Shiloh, it was written, "the South never smiled." duration 46:19   STEREO TVG

    Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly [#1603H] FAITH-BASED VOTERS - Managing editor Kim Lawton discusses what the latest polls say about which candidates religious voters are supporting in the close race between President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney.
    CHURCH ENDORSEMENTS AND THE IRS - As 501C3 tax-exempt not-for-profit entities under the tax code, churches are prohibited from endorsing political candidates and risk losing their exemption from paying taxes if they do. Pastors who object to this restriction have announced October 7th as Pulpit Freedom Sunday when they plan to endorse candidates from the pulpit. Lucky Severson talks with pastors who object to this restriction and others who do not and with former IRS official Marcus Owens who says that the IRS has now effectively shut down all investigations into churches accused of violating the endorsement provision.
    VIETNAMESE CATHOLICS IN THE US - In Carthage, Missouri, there is a Catholic order of 150 Vietnamese priests and seminarians, grateful to be safe and free in the US. They are among the Asians and Asian-Americans who now make up 10% of American Catholic priests and brothers. As Judy Valente reports, the Missouri Congregation each year welcomes Vietnamese from all over the country for a 4-day pilgrimage, festival, reunion and retreat to give thanks for their new lives. More than 50, 000 came this year.
