Episode Description
Sunday, Apr 28, 2013 - 5:00 PM    "Trading Democracy for "Security"" The violent Boston rampage triggered a local and federal response that, according to journalist Glenn Greenwald, adds a new dimension to troubling questions about government secrecy, overreach, and what we sacrifice in the name of national security. Greenwald joins Bill on this week's Moyers & Company (check local listings) to peel back layers that reveal what the Boston bombings and drone attacks have in common, and how secrecy leads to abuse of government power. Also on the show, political scholars Norman Ornstein and Thomas Mann tell Bill that Congress' failure to make progress on gun control last week -- despite support for background checks from 90% of the American public - is symptomatic of a legislative branch reduced to dysfunction, partisan ravings and obstruction.
