Veteran pubcasting journalist Bill Moyers today hit 200,000 likes on his Facebook page, home to his public affairs show Moyers & Co.
Program spokesman Joel Schwartzberg told Current that figure is more than PBS NewsHour, Nova and American Experience, "and catching up quickly on Frontline,"with its 230,000.
Moyers "has been so involved in our digital strategy and is so thrilled" that he created a special video to say thank you to his fans, Schwartzberg said.
"With numbers like that," Moyers says on the video, "we could easily storm several castles, or the Bastille; we could tilt at an army of windmills or sell out the Super Bowl a couple of times over. Better to put all that collective people power to work for social justice, to lift our voices against inequality and the money and corruption that foul democracy."
