Great column from the PBS Ombudsman on the latest from Bill Moyers, who had some unkind words for Karl Rove last week:
When I asked PBS whether there are any other regular programs in which the host provides editorial opinion or informed analysis analogous to what Moyers does, the officials said, “There is no other program or host precisely analogous to Bill Moyers Journal/Bill Moyers but the hosts of other PBS talk and public affairs programs certainly express their opinions on occasion.
Well, not quite like Moyers.
Look, I’ve got no problem with Moyers being outspoken about his left-wing political views. But, if it’s truly “public” broadcasting, then a right-winger should have his own show too.
