    Bill Moyers is lucky (and so are we) in that his “Sole corporate funder” appears to allow him to speak his mind, even when he critisizes their own industry. One common conservative complaint about the press is that it is too liberal. I really don’t know where they get that, but the truth is the truth. Even if we don’t like it, we should hear it anyway. The first step in solving a problem is to first, recognise that a problem exists. Journalists like Moyers (and our host here) do that. I don’t always agree with their analysis or opinions, but they really do report so we can decide…

    Hey, this could be a great slogan for a news organization: “We report, you decide!” (C) Ted Feuerbach, 2004

    “My readers know more than I do.” I can see that this would be true in the area of technology, especially in the Silicon Valley. However, does the average web-log poster or email sender usually represent someone who “knows more” about most subjects? About the most effective policies for local governments to adopt? About how to be a good person and live a happy life? Is it possible that the readers that I hear from is a non-representative (skewed?) sample?
