BILL MOYERS HITS BLOGGER WITH LAWYERS, over a claim that "When Moyers interviewed me for the documentary last spring, he very candidly told me that he is a liberal Democrat and intended for the documentary to influence the November elections to bring control of Congress back to the Democrats."

Moyers and his lawyers say it's false and threaten a libel suit. I think that's unwise. And underscoring that point, I doubt I ever would have heard of this charge had Moyers not threatened legal action.

UPDATE: Yes, this gives Bill Moyers something in common with Dennis Hastert.

ANOTHER UPDATE: Reader Greg Marquez emails: "The two letters on the site you linked re Bill Moyers contain what have to be to be the two most pretentious lawyer signatures of all time."
