Rate this:
Mark Leibovich covers Washington, D.C., as chief national correspondent for The New York Times Magazine-and has written about the city's bipartisan lust for power, cash, and notoriety in a book that everyone who's anyone in our nation's capital is talking about: This Town. This is the story of how Washington became an occupied city, its hold on reality distorted by greed and ambition; it pulls no punches and names names, revealing the movers and shakers and the deals they make, all in the name of crony capitalism. In this edition of Moyers & Company, Leibovich joins Bill 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. Concluding the show is an essay in which Bill says that although the parody and satire of Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert pay Washington the disrespect it deserves, in the end it's the city's predatory mercenaries who have the last laugh.
