This week on NOW: leaders of one of the world's most brutal terrorist groups have long advocated violence against the Egyptian government, and even supplied some foot soldiers for Osama bin Laden. Now they're having second thoughts - is their change of heart to be trusted? NPR's Deborah Amos and NOW's Gregory Henry have this report.

Bill Moyers interviews Daniel Yankelovich, founder of the non-profit organization Public Agenda and author of THE MAGIC OF DIALOGUE. Recognized the world over for careful and credible research on American values and public opinion, Yankelovich explains the need to be careful when reading poll results.

John Sayles, one of our most celebrated independent filmmakers, examines the ever-changing landscape of America in his new film SUNSHINE STATE.
