The Battlecry to Save Public Broadcasting

Moyers on Fire

Bill Moyers closed the Media Reform Conference in St. Louis this weekend. And, after a couple weeks of coverage regarding signs of political pressure at CPB and PBS, Moyers addressed the issue directly. He's been pilloried for years--and certainly, most recently -- for his unpopular views. Unpopular to those in power.

Hear what Moyers said. (You'll download an audio file and then click it to play. Runs 1:02 hours)


Kenneth Tomlinson, the head of CPB who Moyers rebutts in his address, had an op-ed in the right wing Washington Times earlier this week. Tomlinson lays out the controversy and tries to explain the need for balance in public TV.
