Not Your Typical Political Debate

Kudos to PBS for hosting an excellent debate—or “All American Presidential Forum” as it’s known in public television land. The event featured a “panel of color” asking questions on a range of often-ignored topics. And did we mention equal time for all candidates? What a novel concept.

Bill Moyers Lets Loose on Rupert Murdoch

Media icon Bill Moyers objects not just to Rupert Murdoch’s politics but to the damage he says the mogul has done to the ailing Fourth Estate. And in this critique, the venerable journalist doesn’t hold back: “If Rupert Murdoch were the angel Gabriel, you still wouldn’t want him owning the sun, the moon and the stars. ...
