This weekend’s Moyers & Company asks the question:  How do conservatives and liberals see the world? There's more to the answer than meets the eye.

This weekend on Moyers & Company (check local listings), Bill and moral psychologist Jonathan Haidt talk about the psychological underpinnings of our contentious culture, why we can’t trust our own opinions, and the demonizing of our adversaries.
