“Our democracy today is poisoned by so many lies that truth is now stranger than fiction – just not as popular,” said Bill Moyers to a packed audience at UC Santa Barbara.

With his usual eloquence Moyers explores the Trump phenomenon, the revolt against the power elite, and the rigged systems that squeeze out all but the wealthiest and most powerful.
Moyers has received 37 Emmy Awards, nine Peabody Awards, the National Academy of Television’s Lifetime Achievement Award, and the Honorary Doctor of Fine Arts from the American Film Institute, among others.
“Blind faith in bad leadership is not patriotism,” says Moyers. Watch the entire program and see if you agree.
