Democracy Now: Bill Moyers Signs Off From PBS Show


And the legendary broadcaster Bill Moyers signed off on Friday for the final time on his weekly PBS series, Bill Moyers Journal.

Bill Moyers: “You’ve no doubt figured out my bias by now. I’ve hardly kept it a secret. In this regard, I take my cue from the late Edward R. Murrow, the Moses of broadcast news. Ed Murrow told his generation of journalists bias is okay as long as you don’t try to hide it. So here, one more time, is mine: plutocracy and democracy don’t mix. Plutocracy, the rule of the rich, political power controlled by the wealthy. Plutocracy is not an American word but it’s become an American phenomenon.”
