Bill Moyers Leans on IPS Work to Ask: "Who Shipwrecked Our Economy?"

February 12, 2012 ·

Sam Pizzigati's Too Much newsletter highlighted by long-standing commentator.

Bill Moyers, the journalist and political commentator who first came to prominence as LBJ's press secretary, calls out the plutocracy and recommends Too Much, an IPS newsletter.

In America’s Plutocrats Play the Political Ponies, Sam Pizzigati described how the current electoral process resembles a horse race. "Wealthy connoisseurs of political talent pick a candidate. These wealthy connoisseurs then keep that candidate racing until they lose interest," wrote Pizzigati. You can watch an excerpt from Moyers' new show here:
