Video: Bill Moyers on Lyndon B. Johnson’s contribution to civil rights

After browsing Bre's Things video on Blip.tv, I came across Bill Moyers' video regarding the media's treatment of a quote by Hilary Clinton.  Clinton's quote regarded the efforts of the presidence during the Civil Rights era, and was taken out of context.  Moyers comments on the issue and goes on to describe then President Johnson's contribution to the effort.  I have a particular fascination with this part of history, and Dr. King is my hero, for a number of pragmatic as well as ideological reasons.  The video dates from January, 2008 and is not "current" as of this post, but is interesting to watch.
