Bill Moyers to retire

a great loss to credible journalism; but he is planning to go out with a mission:

"I'm going out telling the story that I think is the biggest story of our time: how the right-wing media has become a partisan propaganda arm of the Republican National Committee," says Moyers. "We have an ideological press that's interested in the election of Republicans, and a mainstream press that's interested in the bottom line. Therefore, we don't have a vigilant, independent press whose interest is the American people."

The article can be found here. Its a sad irony that some of the very best and most credible journalists are retirement age, already retired, or gone from this earth ~ and no doubt rolling in there collective graves, in horror and disbelief at the lamentable state of today's press.
