Bill Moyers couldn’t believe his ears.

Like Nixon going to China….

The Vivendi empire is just eerily diversified/conglomerated, so surely they’ve benefitted from deregulation. This leads me to either applaud Diller for his conviction or question his motives. Either way, the message needs to be heard, and reported on by whoever will carry it.

Watching this interview last night on PBS I kept thinking to myself “Oh I hope Lawrence Lessig is watching this!”… :)

I was on the edge of my seat and I agree with you entirely: it was extraordinary to hear Barry Diller say the things he did. Moyers himself seemed flabberghasted, and I dare say lost a few times, unable to comprehend or believe what he was witnessing, hehehe.
