[GreenYes] "Trade Secrets: A Moyers Report" on PBS March 26th
 > > Subject: PBS Documentary Expose

 > > Here is a TV show that we all need to watch..

 > > On or about March 26th at 9:00 pm, it's going to

 > >
 > > That's when PBS will air "Trade Secrets: A Moyers
 > > Report" (be sure to check your local listings for
 > > the exact airdate and time on your PBS station).
 > > Now, any time Bill Moyers looks into something it's
 > > worth our time. But in this case, it's worth more

 > > I've been waiting for years for a journalist of his

 > > its hidden toxic legacy.

 > > It promises to be a ground breaking program, one

 > > foisted upon us by chemical companies, will be
 > > stunned by Moyer's revelations.
 > >
 > > I say this because the program is based on

 > > physicians, and on a massive uncovered archive of
 > > secret industry documents that Moyers and producer
 > > Sherry Jones say rivals the now legendary "Tobacco
 > > Papers" for sheer, appalling shock value. What
 > > those papers apparently reveal is an industry that
 > > has put our health and safety at very dangerous risk
 > > and marshalled powerful forces in a largely

 > > I urge you to watch this program. And more
