43. Bill Moyers in an interview said the Repugs pretty much shut down his
efforts when he worked for PBS and went after NOW accusing him of not having enough Repugs on. He went through his list of guests and showed how he gave equal time to both but he thinks he was canned from doing any more work there because of the Crime Family.

I know there's not the QUALITY PROGRAMMING there was there at one time. And, some of the funders are Right Wing Foundations pushing their views. "CastleRock" being one of their funders and Exxon Mobil and others doing their bit for the Corporations.
