Looking back over his long (and, by and large, well-supported) career, Bill Moyers notes that “the challenge of journalism today is to survive in the pressure cooker of plutocracy.” And (while Moyers might disdain the parallel) the challenge of enlightened public relations practitioners is very much the same.

Moyers' talk, presented at the New York Public Library on May 26 for the Helen Bernstein Book Awards for Excellence in Journalism, is a must read for our times. It expresses his concerns over how oligarchy talks when it’s fearless information that’s needed.
