Review of Bill Moyers on Media Reform 2007

Bill Moyers has done it again: shone a light behind the media's curtain, where the Golden Rule is in sway -- where those who have the gold make the rules. Yes, we've heard the message before. No, we haven't heard it enough--especially delivered with the eloquence, specificity, new information, comprehensive analysis and, finally, hope that Bill Moyers is so good at. If the media have heard all this, how come they're still on the Plantation? And if we are not to let cynicism overcome those of us in the media who hope, pray and work to preserve and expand the voices of those who are so often silenced, we need to listen to Bill Moyers again and again. I hung on every word of this speech -- and thank you, PRX, for putting it up.
