More from this Series

According to Mark Leibovich, Washington has worked for "a lot of people, a lot very good people, a lot of very bad people, and a lot of very mediocre people." And many who have made the town work for them. Reporting on Washington, D.C. as chief national correspondent for The New York Times Magazine, Leibovich has written about the city's bipartisan lust for power, cash and notoriety. In his new book, This Town, he shares what the insiders of Washington are doing to the very notion of government of, by, and for the people, and details how Washington became an occupied city, its hold on reality distorted by greed and ambition. He pulls no punches and names names, revealing the movers and shakers and the deals they make, all in the name of crony capitalism. On this week's Moyers & Company (check local listings), Leibovich joins Bill Moyers to reveal what he has learned about a city where money rules and status is determined by who you know and what they can do for you.
