    Legendary broadcaster Bill Moyers is returning to the airwaves of PBS tonight to launch his new series, Bill Moyers Journal. The debut episode is titled, "Buying the War." Moyers makes the case that the press has yet to come to terms with its role in enabling the Bush administration to go to war on false pretenses.

We air excerpts of "Buying the War" and talk with Moyers about the media, the late journalist David Halberstam, corporate consolidation of the airwaves, and the hope he sees from the grassroots.
