The program dealt with DeLay's relationship with lobbyist Jack Abramoff, who lobbied for the Mariana Islands and their low-wage clothing makers. Brancaccio's opening echoed liberal Rep. George Miller, who said conditions in the Marianas were close "to indentured servitude, to slavery." PBS had no DeLay defenders on the program. The DeLay critics were bipartisan: Rep. Christopher Shays (R-Conn.) told PBS DeLay needs to resign. It was a one-sided get-DeLay program. (Now hasn't tackled the ethics of Hillary Clinton.) . . .
What is notable about the Graham's take on the subject is that he doesn't dispute the facts of the Now program about the Marianas. As far as Graham is concerned, Delay may be supporting indentured servitude in the Mariana Islands. He is just mad that they haven't gone after Hillary as well.
