Bill Moyers is back on PBS. He had what I heard was a GREAT show about how media contributed to our going to war in Iraq, and he has another show tonight. Bill Moyers Journal.
Check out his website: http://www.pbs.org/moyers/journal/index-flash.html
John Stewart on Bill Moyers Journal tonight--check your PBS schedule for time in your area.
Using this message for a general comment on PBS --
Long, long ago PBS went under when it was financed by petroleum companies.
Of course it offers something more than Fox -- but it isn't properly informing the public as it should.
As for Bill Moyers -- yes, he is reporting some stuff that the public won't hear on Fox or ABC.
But -- not in a way which will get anyone up off their couch.
Bill Moyers is questionable, IMO --
He had a long history with LBJ and I don't recall him at the time standing against the war. On the contrary.
Much later, we learned that he and Pierre Salinger in LBJ's White House understood LBJ to be "clinically psychotic" -- and Salinger has discussed this. Not Moyers as far as I know.
And, certainly -- neither of them discussed it at the time - -!!!
Is that a way for officials to protect citizens and our Constitution?
We won't regain PBS/NPR until we have publickly funded licenses for broadcasting.
And until we have publickly financed campaigns for elective office which keep corporations out of our elections.
