Alan Moore is well known for the graphic novel V for Vendetta, The Watchmen and others. I was not at all familiar with Mr. Moore, although I did like the movies and I am a fan of graphic novels. This interview gives us access to his insight of growing up in industrial England, his philosophy and his social/political views. He is a well spoken person. I found his views engaging and his opinions outstanding. ~Mike

Bill Moyers Journal. The Reverend Jeremiah Wright speaks out

In this program, Bill Moyers interviews the Reverend Jeremiah Wright -Senator Barack Obama's pastor - in his first broadcast interview since he became embroiled in controversy over decontextualized sermon excerpts appearing in the media. Offering a full view of the man and his ministry, the Journal chronicles Dr. Wright's career; goes inside his church, the Trinity United Church of Christ; and gets his take on black liberation theology and the sermons at the center of the media firestorm.

Reverend Wright is a great man. You cannot help but understand and sometimes agree with his point of view. Do not judge by soundbites alone. Watch the interview and make your decision. ~Mike
