Moyers fisked

CSW provides a letter that he attributes to Michael Curran (American Thinker) which puts the hypocrisy and elitism of Mr Moyers in perspective.......relating him to the infamous Lyndon Johnson commercial of a little girl dying in a nuclear explosion. Maybe political advertising HAS advanced over the years since Moyers was in charge:

Dear Mr. Moyers:

I’ve been meaning to write you for quite some time, in fact, if the truth were known, I originally intended to communicate with you in 1964, when as Special Assistant to Lyndon Johnson, you approved that television ad showing a small girl picking daisy petals as a nuclear blast in the background foreshadows, not only her demise but also, the deaths of thousands. Johnson’s voice then came on to tell us, “…We must love each other or we must die.” [!]

Were you trying to set new standards for your successors in coming elections? At any rate, it worked! Johnson trounced Senator Goldwater in the presidential election of 1964, 61% to 38% and your stylized demonization of Republicans continues to this day.
