Interesting post on the Chronicle of Higher Education’s blog by one participant in the “skirmish” between Mark Bauerlein and Bill Moyers concerning the latter’s (well-known?) dirty tricks. Here is one segment:
The skirmish began when I cited current discussions in early 2009 of a dirty trick Moyers had played while serving in LBJ’s administration, specifically, a search for any homosexual scandal among Barry Goldwater’s staff. The act certainly undermined Moyers’ persona as a figure of conscience and justice, a character he had successfully presented in many years of television work.
See here for the whole thing. BTW, Moyers is yet another mark against PBS.
