Bill Moyers Journal

Season 13, Episode 23 of 53

In the first days of President Obama's administration, an essay from Sam Tanenhaus entitled "Conservatism is Dead" sparked debate over contemporary conservatism and its place in modern American politics. Digging deep into the roots and evolution of the American conservative movement, Sam Tanenhaus talks with Bill Moyers about why he believes that conservatism is dead and how it might yet come back to life. Tanenhaus is the editor of both The New York Times Book Review and the Week in Review section of the Times. And, with public support for labor unions at its lowest point in 70 years, Bill Moyers talks with experts Michael Zweig, director of the Center for the Study of Working Class Life at SUNY Stony Brook, and Bill Fletcher, director of organizing and education at the American Federation of Government Employees, about the state of organized labor.
