Bill Moyers talks with economist Robert Johnson, who decodes this week's news on the bank bailout, with a hard look at the international ramifications of the plan and a discussion of why nationalization has become a flash point. And, scholar John McWhorter weighs in on whether the U.S. is "a nation of cowards," as Attorney General Eric Holder suggests, on racial issues.
