It’s bad enough we’re going to lose Oprah in 2012, but now, Bill Moyers, too!!
Woe unto us! From where shall we get our unbiased, objective analysis?
Yes. Bill Moyers, that bastion of journalistic integrity, has decided to retire from his tax-payer funder ivory tower over at PBS, in April of 2010. A man whose last 8 years of his career was sustained by perpetuating weekly displays of Bush Derangement Syndrome, it is estimated he has amassed a personal fortune of $20 million from the American tax-payer and generous viewer donations.
Speaking softly with a slight, thoughtful southern drawl, his public life is that of a fiercely outspoken liberal hatchet man. Though he is best known as the propaganda minister for PBS, he got his first big break in Vietnam-era politics. A close confidant of Lyndon B. Johnson, Moyers rose quickly through the political ranks to become Johnson’s “special assistant,” eventually becoming supervisor and point man for the welfare expansion program known as “The Great Society.” He helped forge many social engineering experiments which cost trillions of dollars, much of which we are still paying for today.
Not surprisingly, creation of and funding for public broadcasting became part of this massive government project, which eventually became Moyer’s personal bully pulpit…
