In 2004 Bill Moyers talked with FOX News host Cal Thomas about the cultural values dividing America in an election year.
"Homosexuality, abortion, divorce, drugs, pornography, the long list of cultural ills that are properly trumpeted as indications of decay by many of my brethren on the right are not the cause of our decadence. They're a reflection of it."
Cal Thomas is America's most widely syndicated op-ed columnist. 540 newspapers in the United States and abroad carry the column, now syndicated by Tribune Media Services in Chicago. For sixteen years his column was distributed by the Los Angeles Times Syndicate.

Thomas began his nearly 40-year journalism career as a copyboy for NBC News in his native Washington, D.C. He also has worked as a general assignment reporter and anchor for KPRC-TV in Houston and for NBC News in Washington.

For two years he hosted his own show on CNBC. It was nominated for a Cable Ace award as the best interview program on cable. He is a commentator/analyst for the Fox News Channel and appears weekly as a panelist on FOX NEWS WATCH.

Thomas is an author of ten books, including BLINDED BY MIGHT: WHY THE RELIGIOUS RIGHT CAN'T SAVE AMERICA. His latest is, THE WIT AND WISDOM OF CAL THOMAS.
