I love Bill Moyers. His interview with Joseph Campbell in The Power of Myth transformed my vision of life itself. He is uncompromising in his journalistic ethics and his writing, can at times, be poetry.
He is also irrelevant.
If there was ever an article I've read which amplifies the death throes of our democracy...this is it:
Is the Fourth Estate a Fifth Column?
That was beautiful Bill....but no one cares. We will all move lethargically into the corrale staring blankly at the fat ass in front of us, without question or concern.
In today's America, Moyers is just some asshole who thinks too much. Had he been born 200 years earlier, he may well have been conferring with Jefferson, Franklin (especially Franklin) and Adams to forge the daring and noble path this country set upon.
In 100 years I'd like to think that Tony Snow would be nothing more than a footnote to a dark chapter in our country's history and that Bill Moyers would be remembered as a true patriot and hero. History, however, is written by those who win and to those tyrants who have won this country, parrots are much more noble than eagles.
