Bill Moyers

Bill Moyers was in town on Sunday and had a few things to say about the media . Unfortunately, I wasn't there - would have loved to have seen it.
A quote to tide you over till you get there:
Bill Moyers denounced on Sunday the right wing and top officials at the White House, saying they are trying to silence their critics by controlling the news media.
He also took aim at reporters who become little more than willing government "stenographers." And he said the public increasingly is content with just enough news to confirm its own biases.

You can also listen to the entire speech here - on second thought, ignore the Post-Dispatch link and go here and listen to the whole thing. I'm kind of mad at the Post-Dispatch because they have not published my response to the creationist letter.
