Tom Engelhardt on Moyers: Supersized Politics in the 2012 Election

On Bill Moyer’s PBS show, Tom Engelhardt discusses our “supersized” American election: longer, more expensive, and full of more hot air. Even as every second our candidates’ actions are scrutinized on TV, Twitter, and beyond, the election has been stunningly devoid of substance.

Tom Engelhardt is the founder of and author of The End of Victory Culture and co-author, with Nick Turse, of Terminator Planet: The First History of Drone Warfare.
