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

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.
