One of the country’s most prominent and respected journalists, Bill Moyers has been a founding organizer of the Peace Corps, a senior White House assistant and press secretary to President Lyndon Johnson, publisher of Newsday, senior news analyst for CBS News, and producer or host of many groundbreaking series on public television. Moyers on Democracy (2008) collects his most moving statements on the state of America, including insights on economic inequality, the assault on the Constitution, the undermining of the electoral process, and the despoiling of the environment. He speaks to these topics and reads excerpts from his book. This event was a presentation of the Patron Network of Thirteen/WNET and WLIW21, in cooperation with The New York Society Library.
