    Oh thank God. This travesty of 'journalism' finally leaves the airwaves 20 years too late. You know, I'd have respected him a lot more if he'd just been honest:

    "Hi, I'm Bill Moyers and I'm so leftist I make Castro think I may be going too far."

    At least that, I can respect... not this fake 'I'm an impartial journalist who neeeeeever shades the truth to match my politics.'

    Hell even Jakob Riis didn't try that. He was always a reformer.

    Respect? Jakob Riis showed comfortable New Yorkers how the other half lived. Bill Moyers could have easily chosen to be a very comfortable 'New Yorker'...

    Instead Bill Moyers spoke truth to power.

    I find it difficult to respect a bus driver who shills for the oligarchy...

    That's always such a nice thing to say when someone dies.

    Good one, buddy. :thup:

    We're all a little freer now that Moyers has joined Cronkite under Satan's ass in the 9th Circle of the Inferno

    Sorry to disappoint you scum bag, but Bill Moyers didn't die.

    Please explain to me again how your hatred of Americans is patriotism and al Qaeda's hatred of Americans is evil?

    Moyers' show has a liberal slant, and he'd be the first one to admit that, but where---where do people refute any facts he's ever laid out? Where do people attack the truth of his claims?

    Does Moyers ever apologize iof he makes an error? How many times has it been proven that Moyers was wrong?

    Bill Moyers is a national treasure, and he didn't die---his show is going off the air.

    Right. a reformer. He didn't try to hide the fact he had a view point and manipulate people by making them aware to a great evil in society. Moyers always hid the fact he was a leftist and did his best to manipulate from secret with choice questions and convenient lapses of important issues to edit and massage the news for the masses to give a certain political point. Good/evil versus politics. Yeah, I can see the equivalency. :rolleyes: Much like the networks used to get away with, till the alternative media has gone into ascendency and people began abandoning them en masse. It's not enough yet, but it'll get there soon at this rate before the power of the state controlled media (ABC/NBC/CBS/CNN/MSNBC/NYTimes et all) match their minority following. But with it PBS, it just took longer to cut out this cancer of Bill Moyers in journalism.

    Let the healing begin.
