Town Square today, Bill Moyers tomorrow

by Larry Geller

Stretch your understanding of current events beyond the mainstream media. Tune in to Town Square on KIPO today (Thursday) 5-6 p.m. 89.3 FM to learn about how a bill that has zoomed through Hawaii’s legislature under the radar would deregulate phone, cable and broadband and endanger public access television. It could cost you money, hope you’ll tune in.

The second half of Bill Moyers Journal tomorrow (Friday) will feature an interview with Glenn Greenwald and Amy Goodman:

"I think the way the media works is they show the spectrum of opinion between the Democrats and the Republicans in Washington. Often that is very narrow. But the fact is, the majority of Americans fall outside of that opinion." -Amy Goodman

"It's not even some sort of Machiavellian or conspiratorial effort, sometimes, to exclude certain opinions. It's actually the fact that reporters — and media stars — and corporate and establishment journalists are so embedded into the establishment...That they're so completely insular and out of touch from what public opinion actually is. And polls show that huge numbers of issues and positions that are held by large numbers of Americans are ones that are virtually never heard in our media discussions." - Glenn Greewald

Of course, many of you are fans of Amy Goodman’s Democracy Now program (hint: buy a t-shirt, they need the support, and the t-shirt shows you’re cool).

The first half of the Journal is an interview with William K Black about the financial crisis:

The financial industry brought the economy to its knees, but how did they get away with it? With the nation wondering how to hold the bankers accountable, Bill Moyers sits down with William K. Black, the former senior regulator who cracked down on banks during the savings and loan crisis of the 1980s. Black offers his analysis of what went wrong and his critique of the bailout.

On Oahu, that’s channel 10, Friday, April 3, 8:30 p.m.
