Bill Moyers Journal
Poet Martin Espada / The Yes MenUnknown - 2007
Mike Bonanno and Andy Bichlbaum- The Yes Men- have discovered that high-visibility pranks can get major press attention for important issues that would otherwise be ignored. In this program, Bill Moyers gets in on the joke with these two impersonators, who use satirical "identity correction" to make serious points about media consolidation, journalism, business ethics, and separating fact from fiction in a world of spin. Also on the program: poet Martin Espada speaks about his love of language and the human need for poetry as he reflects on how heritage, immigration, violence, and war have influenced his work and reads from his latest book, The Republic of Poetry. In addition, Bill Moyers highlights some viewer mail.
