Thomas the Rhymer BS: Watch Bill Moyers most powerful speech (49) RE: BS: Watch Bill Moyers most powerful speech 18 Jan 07


I watched both of the videos. I yawned a lot.

When Bill Moyers is presenting 'alternative' points of view by fascillitating discussion, or by interviewing interesting people, I think he's great. It doesn't matter whether I agree with him or not, because the subject becomes non-fiction in it's display of 'what is'. "The Power of Myth" is awe-inspiring in it's depth and clarity... even when it is biased to the lefty.

But when he makes speaches like this one... his talking points are diminished because he can't ask his usual pretinent questions with his characteristic intuitive accuracy. He seems to flounder within the perameters of his own pontfication (just like me)... as he swings exclusively on but one branch of the political tree.

But, ask any good reporter about their personal views... and the result is likely to be tepid... in comparison to their presentation of news stories that contain just a hint of themselves, as reflected in the questions and content of their writing/program.
