Brian Lehrer Live - What Do We Allow Ourselves to See?

Episode Details

Original tape date: October 24, 2007.

This week, what do we allow ourselves to see?  Disturbing images from Burma don't always stir reaction, and we see how others harness Google earth to watch how the world is changing.  Plus, artist Steve Mumford takes us to place in Iraq that cameras can not.
