Bill Moyers

“We’re seeing unfold a contemporary example of the age-old ambition of power and ideology to squelch and punish journalists who tell stories that make princes and priests uncomfortable. By princes and priests, I mean the people obsessed with control, using the government to threaten and intimidate. I mean the people who turn faith-based initiatives into a slush fund and encourage the pious to look heavenward and pray so as not to see the long arm of privilege and power picking their pockets. I mean the people who squelch free speech in an effort to obliterate dissent and consolidate their orthodoxy into the official view of reality from which any deviation becomes unpatriotic heresy.”
