  • On PBS, Bill Moyers Trashes America and the NRA As 'Venomous...Enablers of Death'

    With the first heart-breaking headlines out of Colorado, gun-rights advocates just had to know that leftist lecturers in our media would mount their soap boxes and trash this country for its gun culture and trash the National Rifle Association as an "enabler of death -- paranoid, delusional, and as venomous as a scorpion." But it's additionally sad that the soap box in this case is paid for by taxpayers -- in the form of taxpayer support for every PBS station that spews out this leftist loathing. On his show Moyers & Company, 78-year-old PBS omnipresence Bill Moyers reached back to...
  • Bill Moyers Marks July 4 By Repeating Myth That Jefferson Sired Children With His Slaves

    It's somehow not enough that longtime PBS omnipresence Bill Moyers has to join his fellow leftists in denouncing America's origins for Independence Day. But the supposedly probing journalist descended to spreading the historical myth that Thomas Jefferson sired slave children with Sally Hemings. He hasn't read the books of Jefferson scholars denouncing these tales as "An American Travesty"? Moyers also scooped this refuse on his latest PBS show Moyers & Company. On Alternet, the Moyers column was titled "Celebrating An Unfinished Revolution." The founders surely knew that when they let these ideas loose in the world, they could never again...

    WASHINGTON, June 30 - A researcher secretly retained by the chairman of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting to monitor liberal bias in public radio and television set his sights on several media personalities, including Bill Moyers, Tucker Carlson, Tavis Smiley, David Brancaccio and Diane Rehm, according to documents made public Thursday. Senator Byron Dorgan, Democrat of North Dakota, released 50 pages of what he called the "work product" of Fred Mann, a researcher who has been connected to conservative journalism centers and who was hired by the corporation's chairman, Kenneth Y. Tomlinson. Mr. Dorgan pronounced the work "a little nutty"...
  • Charlie's Soapbox: Scenario: (The Major Media If "Ms. Clinton" Won '08)

    The major media in this country is falling all over themselves telling us that 53% of the people polled would vote for Hillary Clinton for President in 2008, a disputable fact since a lot depends on how the questions were worded and where the poll was taken. But for the sake of argument, let’s just say that they’re right and that Mrs., oh pardon me, Ms. Clinton ran and was elected. Maybe we should start now, those of us who don’t have access to Lexus Nexus, to save some of the newspaper clippings and taping some of the Bill Moyer...
  • A great response, a weasel's correction(Moyer's backhanded apology and Star Tribune's "correction"

    For anyone following the story of BIll Moyer's libel against former Reagn Sec. of Interior James Watt. Pressure was brought to bear on Bill Moyers by PowerLine and several other internet sources for complete fabrication of a quote meant to paint conservatives and Christians as "theocrats" blinded by "radical religious ideology" After this issue was mentioned on Powerline and FR it was picked up by O'Reilly. While O'Reilly is probably just as clueless as Moyers as to how the internet is changing the media he does have a wider forum (rightly or wrongly). Moyers has now offered up a "fake...

    Bill Moyers: There might be sadness over his retirement in the echo chamber of his physical, social and political neighborhoods. But none from us.Moyers, a longtime journalist who's retiring Friday, fouled the airwaves for decades with his own linguistic pollution. He kept it clean enough; no filthy Whoopi Goldberg or Chevy Chase rants against the right.Moyers instead fancies himself as an above-it-all sage whose pronouncements from on high are like a word from God.It's all been a cover for high-brow slurs, though. Consider this from the Feb. 28, 2003, ....[snip]Catch the self-assured superiority, the condescension? Anyone who supported the Iraq...

    NEW YORK (AP) _ A simmering feud between talk show host Bill O'Reilly and public television journalist Bill Moyers erupted on Wednesday after Moyers bought a newspaper advertisement to respond to what he called a "vicious personal attack." Moyers was referring to O'Reilly's syndicated column, published in the Daily News on Nov. 25, in which O'Reilly criticized him for "profiting from taxpayer money" by keeping the sales proceeds of videotapes of some programs he does for the tax-subsidized Public Broadcasting System.
