Journalism's job is to cover the news, but it's the work of investigative reporters to uncover the news powerful people prefer to keep hidden, says Bill Moyers. This edition of the Journal takes a hard and fresh look at how earmarks really work with "Mr. Heath Goes to Washington," a segment produced with the public TV series Exposé: America's Investigative Reports. It profiles Seattle Times reporters on the trail of how members of Congress have awarded federal dollars for questionable purposes to companies in local Congressional districts. Also on the program, Sarah Chayes, author of The Punishment of Virtue: Inside Afghanistan After the Taliban, offers a penetrating look at the front lines of the ongoing war in Afghanistan.
