Bill Moyers, veteran journalist and host of Moyers & Company, talks about his four-decade career in broadcast journalism and the responsibility that comes with bearing witness to history.
I don't remember exactly when so many of Pres. Johnson's Great Society/War on Poverty measures were dismantled, but I do remember that it was about 18 years later that conservatives were blaming those programs for an increase in poverty & crime among inner-city youths. Funny how those youths were born at just the right time to grow up *without* those programs, but it was the fault of the programs, not of ending them.
It was Jim Lehrer (ret.) who gave the "we are not in the entertainment business" speech, to Bernies point. But note that the WNET chief yanks 50% of his content for 10% of the year to host "Mighty Wind" entertainment events. Erosion.
Mr. Moyers is a leader in the field of life in America. I respect his contributions enormously. I would like to hear more about what is going on now and what can be done to drive it in a better direction. WHAT CAN WE DO???
Can you ask him if he feels campaign finance is the root of our problems?
Now taking nominations for a Bill Moyers replacement.Mine: Bill Mackibben, but I'd like a dialog.Mr Moyers: every year you give I give thanks for.
Bill Moyers is the chief whining liberal of PBS.
hey BL show production team- please ask mr.moyers how and why you guys have gone wrong. he'll probably say that taking calls from audience members on how they spent the passover/easter weekend is a ridiculous idea....keep the other dopey segments you're all guilty of airing to yourselves otherwise he might leave the studio. please learn something from this man. please?
