Bill Moyers for President!

"Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for dinner. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote."
-Benjamin Franklin

This is the quote Bill Moyers used to open his plenary address at this year's National Conference for Media Reform, held over this past weekend in Memphis, and it only got better from there. This was an absolutely electrifying speech. I've heard Bill Moyers speak before, and while he never fails to impress, I'd not heard him loaded for bear quite the way he was this time around. He is, after all, an ordained baptist minister, and that really comes through when he's on his game. If you have even a passing interest in net neutrality, I highly recommend giving this a listen. And if you don't have even a passing interest in net neutrality, then you NEED to give this a listen! Perhaps the best part is his announcement that he'll be reviving his old news documentary program, Bill Moyers' Journal, this spring. It's about an hour long, so grab yourself a snack and a tasty beverage, and enjoy!
