Veteran journalist Bill Moyers says he fears for the nation’s survival

“All th’s needed for evil to triumph is that good men do nothing.”


Speaking in an interview with CNN, legendary journalist Bill Moyers says a “society, a democracy, can die of too many lies — and we’re getting close to that terminal moment unless we reverse the obsession with lies that are being fed around the country.”

With the televised hearings beginning this week on Wednesday and Friday, Moyers and Common Dreams’ Michael Winship urges PBS to rebroadcast these hearings during prime time so working people can have the opportunity to watch democracy unfold. 

“Let’s not be timid and behave minimally at a time of maximum threats to our political order. This is not a dress rehearsal our democracy faces. It’s the real thing,” Moyers and Winship write in a letter to the heads of the nation’s public television stations.
