Returning the Rule of Law

    Airtime: Friday, December 12, 2008, at 9:00 PM (EST) on PBS (check local listings here).

    This week on the "Journal," Bill Moyers sits down with political commentator and Salon.com blogger Glenn Greenwald, who asks, "Are we a nation ruled by men or by laws?" A former constitutional and civil rights lawyer, Greenwald looks at the legacy of the Bush administration, the prospects for President-elect Obama's cabinet choices and the possibilities for government accountability. Greenwald is the author of two New York Times bestsellers, "How Would a Patriot Act?" and "A Tragic Legacy," and most recently, "Great American Hypocrites." And, Georgetown University's legal and finance scholar Emma Coleman Jordan takes Bill Moyers through recent news on the bailouts as big business begs for more.
