    Democracy Now! Bill Moyers Interviews 6/8/2011 & 6/9/2008

    in News

    In a Democracy Now! special broadcast, we are joined by legendary journalist Bill Moyers, a founding organizer of the Peace Corps, press secretary for President Lyndon Johnson, a publisher of Newsday, and senior correspondent for CBS News. Public television is where he has made his home, producing many groundbreaking shows and winning more than 30 Emmy Awards. Moyers has just published a new book, "Bill Moyers Journal: The Conversation Continues," a collection of interviews from his popular PBS show that aired from 2007 to 2010. "The greatest change in politics in my time has been the transformation of democracy, America, from a citizens’ society, the moral agency of all those people in the civil rights movement who stood up against the weight of authority and against persecution and acted as agents of change—the change from a citizens’ society to a consumer society, where most of us are caught up on that treadmill, trying to get more," Moyers says. In a wide-ranging interview, he also discusses the state of the public media infrastructure he helped to establish as part of the Johnson administration. "Public broadcasting, which remains a place that treats you as a citizen and not a consumer, is also threatened. We must defend it. We must call it back to its heights. We must continue to support it, because without it, we’re at the mercy, totally, of corporate power."
    4th annual National Conference for Media Reform, organized by the group Free Press. Keynote address by legendary journalist Bill Moyers.

    William C. Moyers Discusses Addiction, His New Book A New Day A New Life Journal & Hazelden Rehab

    in Self Help

    Join Jacqueline Foreman as she interviews William C. Moyers about addiction and recovery. William is the author of the books Broken and A New Day A New Life Journal (with DVD). Moyers is also Executive Director for the Hazelden Center for Public Advocacy in Minnesota. In his memoir, Moyers, the son of prominent author, media figure and LBJ advisor Bill Moyers, recounts his heartbreaking struggle with alcohol and cocaine during the '80s and early '90s. Moyers covered his tracks through bold-faced denial until he spiraled out of control and landed in the first of four rehab stints. Moyers deftly tackles the complexities of sobriety, especially acceptance of those broken situations and relationships that cannot be fixed. Audie Award–winning narrator Brick brings an appropriate blend of pathos and grit to the very formidable task at hand, giving compelling voice to a tale of substance abuse without descending into a maudlin soap opera confessional. Brick proves especially masterful in recreating the delicate nuances of the father-son dialogues, as the elder Moyers struggles to convey both unconditional love toward his troubled grown child and unequivocal nonacceptance for that same young man's destructive patterns of behavior.

    Chat and Warm-up music begins at 8:30am pacific/11:30 am eastern.
    Ilene and our guest begin the interview at 9am pacific/12-noon eastern.
    A lot of what you now know about Consciousness is because of what Justine Toms and her husband of 40 years, Michael Toms, did together. They founded New Dimensions radio. Michael interviewed nearly 3000 of the world’s cutting-edge people opening our world to the idea of consciousness and conscious living. In January, Michael died. Justine is carrying on, still talking about consciousness, and also sharing the story of New Dimensions. Bill Moyers, public-television producer and host, wrote about New Dimensions: "In this day of fortune-cookie philosophies and bumper-sticker politics, it is refreshing to find a sanctuary for sustained conversation where two people truly communicate, with a large audience leaning across the electronic sofa eavesdropping. 'New Dimensions' is a safe haven for that kind of sharing."   For those of you who have loved New Dimensions shows, you’ll want to make sure you hearthis show wit
