Bankruptcy Report on PBS

Friday, February 9, the PBS show NOW will air a report about the United States bankruptcy laws. Here is their press release announcing the show:


Friday, February 9 at 8:30 p.m. on PBS (check local listings)

The average American owes an estimated $9,200 on credit cards. And while recent changes to bankruptcy laws may put a smile on the face of some banks and credit card companies, they're making it hard for average Americans to dig themselves out of debt. On February 9 at 8:30 pm (check local listings), NOW returns to Waterbury, Connecticut, where it first began reporting about these laws, and revisits a family struggling with their bankruptcy.

The NOW website at will provide additional coverage starting Friday morning, February 9, including useful advice on keeping your personal finances in check, and a look at high-profile death row exonerations.

If you miss the broadcast, it will be available for free in its entirety starting Monday at
