John Nichols and Robert McChesney on the media and democracy
In this program, media experts John Nichols and Robert McChesney join Bill Moyers to examine America's corporate media machine and the dire implications of closed-door deregulatory decisions. Nichols, Washington correspondent for The Nation, and McChesney, author of "Rich media, poor democracy: communication politics in dubious times", discuss, among other topics, the pernicious influence of corporate interests on the free press, which they contend have become a major barrier to the exercise of democracy.
