Bill Moyers on Rupert Murdoch Cites Clinton Ties

Message Stephen C. Rose
A remarkable Bill Moyers journal was made prior to the Wall Street Journal's purchase by Rupert Murdoch. That is significant for two reason. He notes a Clinton tie-in to Murdoch and FOX News then.One which persists. And, by implication, he implies exactly what is unique about this race. Obama does not take anything from Murdoch. And that means Murdoch and his ilk can only be beaten by "we the people".

What makes this dynamic new is the rise of cyberspace as a reasonably democratic entity. I have little doubt that if Obama wins the nomination and Presidency that Murdoch and his other jaws of hell entities will seek to close the door on internet democracy.

My only reflection on the Moyers video, beyond the above, has to do with LBJ. Moyers was an LBJ protege, almost a sun. I associate LBJ with the very jaws of hell. I will be searching around today to see if Moyers has ever rejected and renounced the man who helped eviscerate any shred of hope that existed for an achievement of the sort of hope that Obama represents.

Make no mistake, the Murdoch-FOX attack on Barack is not playing games for ratings. It is dead earnest and mandated from the top. No one is better able to identify a threat than one who is infested by the various demons associated with the jaws of hell.
