Original tape date: November 8, 2012.
First aired: November 12, 2012.
The election is finally over. So what happens next? Moyers & Company tackles that question this weekend (check local listings) with veteran journalist James Fallows. Fallows has been writing on economic, foreign, and political affairs for The Atlantic since the l970s. He is now the magazine’s national correspondent and the author of such acclaimed books as Looking at the Sun: The Rise of the New East Asian Economics and Political System; National Defense, winner of the National Book Award; and most recently, China Airborne.
Later on the show, Bill gets more insight with long-time New York Times columnist Bob Herbert and Reihan Salam, blogger at National Review Online’s “The Agenda,” a daily blog focused on domestic policy. Herbert has been traveling the country for the past two years reporting for his forthcoming book The Wounded Colossus, and is now Distinguished Fellow at the think tank DEMOS. Salam is the co-author, with Ross Douthat, of Grand New Party: How Conservatives Can Win the Working Class and Save the American Dream.
A bitter election behind us; burning questions ahead. Next on Moyers & Company.
