    Out of Order Now more than ever, American citizens are discontented and disillusioned with national politics, with approval ratings for Congress consistently ranking low regardless of the party in power. Senior politicians also note the disappearance of the collegiality they once shared with peers of differing political ideologies. As a result, the ability to discuss issues from varying points of view and negotiate solutions, appears to be fading from the American political process.
    Among many topics, this program addresses the decline in civil discourse and the news media's role in it, partisan gridlock, gerrymandering, vanishing commitment to reasonable compromise, the vilification of moderates and declining civic engagement. It relies on interviews with a broad range of political experts and observers from journalists, academics and political strategists to senior elected officials. They include: journalist Bob Schieffer (CBS News), Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA), Sen. Susan Collins (R-MA), Fmr Sen. Evan Bayh (D-IN), Fmr Sen. Alan Simpson (R-WY), Fmr Sen. John Warner (R-VA) .

    Moyers & Company [#226H] Surviving The New American Economy 22 years ago, Bill Moyers started documenting the story of two ordinary families in Milwaukee, Wisconsin - families whose breadwinners had lost well-paying factory jobs. Relying on the belief that hard work is the key to a good living and better life, the Stanleys and the Neumanns, like millions of others, went about pursuing the American dream. But as they found other jobs, got re-trained, and worked any time and overtime, they still found themselves on a downward slope, working harder and longer for less pay and fewer benefits, facing devastating challenges and difficult choices.
    This week, Moyers revisits his reports on the Stanleys and Neumanns - whose stories Bill updates on the July 9 Frontline report "Two American Families." He also talks with the authors of two important books about how the changing nature of the economy is affecting everyone: Barbara Miner, a public education advocate who's been following the decline of her own Milwaukee hometown for nearly 40 years; and author, activist and playwright Barbara Garson, who's published a number of books about the changing lives of working Americans. Her most recent is Down the Up Escalator: How the 99% Live in the Great Recession.

    Washington Week with Gwen Ifill [#5301H] President Obama is just six months into his second term and for most of that time his ambitious agenda has been overshadowed by a number of unexpected events and controversies. From the attention on gun legislation in the wake of the Newtown school shooting, to the string of controversies involving the IRS, Justice Department and NSA leaker Edward Snowden, the president seems to be facing hurdles and distractions at every turn.
    As the president tries to focus on addressing his key legislative priorities, Washington remains extremely polarized and the partisan divide on Capitol Hill continues. Even the bipartisan immigration reform bill that passed the Senate faces an uphill battle in the House.
    The Washington stalemate isn't going unnoticed by voters. A recent Gallup Poll found nearly 4 in 5 Americans, 78%, disapprove of the way Congress is handling its job, while the President's approval ratings continue to be under 50%.
    With the Congressional midterms just 16 months away, the White House recognizes the clock is ticking and the window for Mr. Obama to advance his priorities could be closing. The same is true for lawmakers up for re-election in 2014 who are aware every vote they cast could help or hurt their chances of reelection.
    The White House is also dealing with foreign policy challenges in Syria and escalating unrest in Egypt while the draw-down of US troops from Afghanistan continues.
    Gwen Ifill examines the successes and challenges for Congress and the Obama administration over the first half of 2013 plus takes a look ahead at the economic outlook for the remainder of the year with: Susan Davis of USA Today, John Dickerson of Slate Magazine and CBS News, David Wessel of The Wall Street Journal, and Jeff Zeleny of ABC News.

    Tomlinson Hill In the mid-1800s just outside of Marlin, Texas, a slave plantation named Tomlinson Hill was founded by James K. Tomlinson. The establishment would have long lasting effects on the rural community. TOMLINSON HILL documents how the legacy of slavery in east and central Texas has created a region still divided despite the civil rights changes of the last 60 years. Reporter Chris Tomlinson, a descendant of slave owner James K. Tomlinson, confronts the shame and guilt he feels from his ancestry and digs deeper into the real legacy of the area. He comes across Loreane Tomlinson, a descendant of slaves on Tomlinson Hill, who has returned to her hometown with a vision of civic improvement. Says Tomlinson "After meeting Loreane, I knew I wanted the film to tell the story of my family history as well as her family history. Together, it's the story of America, as far as I'm concerned/" The documentary is a fascinating look at people trying to move on while others idly resist change. Can Marlin survive and transform not only the racial separation that exists, but the deep-rooted socio-economic divide as well? duration 56:33   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)
