Bill Moyers on Democracy Now

I heard a few minutes of Bill Moyers address to the National Conference on Media Reform in St. Louis, Missouri, May 15, 2005, rebroadcast on Democracy Now. I did not recognize his voice at the time, but I'm glad to have this.

First, let me assure you that I take in stride attacks by the radical right wingers who have not given up demonizing me although I retired over six months ago. They’ve been after me for years now, and I suspect they will be stomping on my grave to make sure I don’t come back from the dead. I should point out to them that one of our boys pulled it off some two thousand years ago after the Pharisees, the Sadducees and Caesar surrogates thought they had shut him up for good. I won’t be expecting that kind of miracle, but I should put my detractors on notice, they might just compel me out of the rocking chair and back into the anchor chair.

Go to Democracy Now to listen.
