This week on NOW:

Will Congress stop big media from getting even bigger? In light of Wednesday's 400-2 vote in the House to overturn part of the FCC's ruling to further deregulate the media industry, NOW goes to Capitol Hill to take the pulse of lawmakers on what has turned into a stunning political event in CHANGING CHANNELS.

Go inside some of the most hotly debated topics of a new age, including stem cell research, gene therapy, and cloning, as Bill Moyers talks to Leon Kass, a scientist, physician, and scholar wrestling with contemporary ethical issues.

The findings of the congressional investigation into the 9/11 attacks are out, and NOW interviews former Senator Max Cleland about what his own organization, the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States, has to say about what led up to 9/11.
