Moyers & Company

The Collision Of Sports And Politics

Streaming Video - 2013
Rate this:
In this edition of Moyers & Company, Dave Zirin, sports correspondent for The Nation, joins Bill to discuss the intersection of sports, politics, and greed. Should college athletes get paid? Should taxpayers bankroll new stadiums that benefit wealthy team owners? The vast gap between sports tycoons and the everyday fans who shell out hard-earned cash to watch their athlete heroes is yet another reflection of the gross inequality between the 1 percent and the rest of society. "In so many different ways," says Zirin, "sports stories are stories of American life in the 21st century." Also, in an essay regarding Syria, Bill predicts that those inside the Beltway may ultimately be grateful that the public raised their voices, said no to an airstrike, and pulled us back from the brink of war.
