January 18, 2015: Acclaimed journalist Bill Moyers retires from a long career in public broadcasting this month. On this week's KPR Presents, Bill Moyers talks about his time working for President Lyndon B. Johnson and similarities between LBJ and President Harry Truman. It's "A Tale of Two Presidents: History Takes Time," sponsored by the Truman Library Institute and the Bennett Forum on the Presidency, recorded at Kansas City's Unity Temple on the Plaza. We'll also hear from another great journalist: ProPublica founder Paul Steiger, winner of several Pulitzer Prizes and the William Allen White National Citation.
Moyers' remarks are the first part in a two-part series. Join us February 1st for Part Two, when Moyers is joined by former U.S. Senator Bob Kerrey (D-Nebraska) for a dialogue about the presidency and politics today.
