Bill Moyers sensibly asks followers to ignore retweet of Matt Yglesias

We don’t usually agree with Bill Moyers on anything, but his advice to ignore his mistaken retweet of Slate’s Matt Yglesias is solid.


We wouldn’t want to be associated with that Te’o-themed joke either. Or Ygelsias, especially after today’s Twitter spree on how Obama’s children are more important than our own.

    I have an Atlanta Rhythm Section song running through my head from all this fake dead girlfriend stuff on twitter. Guess I’ll just groove on that for a while.

    Odd that Bill Moyers’ Twitter account does not have the blue check mark to show that the account is really him.

  • John Difool

    I’ll give it to Matty Lice, he actually Tweeted something funny….for once.

  • George Washington Mclintock

    TO heck and beyond with Moyers. He helped give rise to the Yglesias’ of the world. I wish he’d showed this sort of sense 35-40 years ago when he was laying the foundation for all these pasty non-contributors that have the country so screwed up.

    Moyers is one of those hardcore liberals (remember, he worked for LBJ) that truly equate dependence on government with ‘compassion’.

    Bill Moyers is smarter than the lot of you.
