Moyers as Press Secretary: ‘Credibility Was So Bad, We Couldn’t Believe Our Own Leaks’

By Jason Chupick Comment

Last night’s interview on The Colbert  Report looked like the smooth talking elder (Bill Moyers) sparring with a brash youngster. Moyers used a folksy henhouse analogy to contrast his interviewing style with the PAC-genius, before quickly covering his two years as White House Press Secretary under Lyndon Johnson: “Our credibility was so bad, we couldn’t believe our own leaks.”

Moyers returned to print journalism after his time in the White House, then began a brilliant broadcast career spanning more than 40 years. He was doing the interview to promote his latest show Moyers & Company.
