You missed the point, John. I know that Moyers is distinctly from the liberal side, and I think that's fine. I applaud his openly and frankly liberal intellectual position. My point is that he was a suitable counterpoint to MacLaughlin's equally far right position. And a good counterpoint to people like William F. Buckley who was on PBS for years. And Tony Brown had his unique positions on things. The point is, the PBS network had room for all of them. They don't try to muzzle them and aim at some sterile middle ground. The right would muzzle the left and try to call it "balanced." Ha.

FOX is a joke--there isn't an attempt to provide varied viewpoints or positions over there.
