Bill Moyers: Ted Cruz a ‘Brute’ With a ‘Forked Tongue’
February 12th, 2016 9:35 PM
Former PBS fixture Moyers recently touched on Ted Cruz’s Canadian birth, but not with an eye toward whether or not Cruz is eligible for the presidency. Rather, it was to contrast Canada-born hockey enforcer John Scott with Cruz, who’s “another kind of enforcer.” Each has a large and enthusiastic following: fans voted the journeyman Scott into this year’s NHL All-Star…

February 8th, 2015 7:32 PM
CNN’s Reliable Sources devoted most of its show Sunday to the Brian Williams scandal, but host Brian Stelter made sure that Williams defenders in the liberal elite, from Joe Klein to Bill Moyers, were quoted and discussed. Stelter didn’t have interview or quote any conservative critics of Williams.
Stelter quoted Bill Moyers the PBS omnipresence to former network reporter and analyst…

January 2nd, 2015 12:55 PM
The Washington Post celebrated the latest retirement announcement of longtime PBS omnipresence Bill Moyers (we'll believe it when he's gone for a year). The headline is "A crusader's quiet farewell." That's polite code for "declining in relevance."
Post media reporter Paul Farhi noted that PBS and Moyers are tightly wound in the brand: "Except for stints…
Brain Cramp: Planned Parenthood Boss Compares Protesting Abortion to P
July 26th, 2014 9:07 PM
Last weekend, Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards appeared with Bill Moyers on the PBS program Moyers & Company. The longtime PBS omnipresence pestered Richards with the fact that the abortion opponents are winning, placing limits on abortion in many states.

Bill Moyers Ridiculously Warns Against ‘Learned Helplessness’; Twi
July 9th, 2013 6:00 PM
Left-wing journalist Bill Moyers made a truly ludicrous attempt on Monday to twist the meaning of a particular two-word phrase.

Looking the host in the eye, Moyers warned, “Never underestimate the power of learned…
White Lefty PBS Commentator Bill Moyers Lectures Black Justice Clarenc
July 2nd, 2013 11:47 AM
White liberals often arrogantly see themselves as more qualified to know how blacks should behave politically than blacks who are conservative. Bill Moyers is one such white liberal—a white liberal who has become wealthy by leveraging taxpayer-subsidized public television.
While Clarence Thomas was facing severe racial discrimination and hostility in the mid- and late-1950s as a black…

Bozell Column: The Media Lobbyists Lose on Guns
April 20th, 2013 8:17 AM
President Obama suffered a large, embarrassing loss in the Senate on a slew of gun-control bills. If this were a Republican president, they’d be sounding the lame-duck alarms on the nightly newscasts. But most media outlets can’t do this. They were fully invested in this campaign alongside Obama, and to underscore his weakness is to acknowledge their own.
Since mid-December, the…

'Robin Hood Tax' Gains Support of Soros, Moyers, Tides and Media
October 31st, 2012 2:26 PM
