Presidents and Politics With Richard Strout [electronic resource]

Sunrise Media LLC
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
This Bill Moyers program features news correspondent Richard Strout, who covered Washington and the White House from 1925 to his retirement in 1984. Strout's reports, filed for the Christian Science Monitor and The New Republic, are studied here not only as chronicles of American history but as milestones circumscribing our nation's capital-and its evolution from a "small town" to the nerve center of the free world. Strout speaks with Bill Moyers about presidents from Coolidge to Reagan, about Congressional lions, about mighty visitors like Winston Churchill, and about breath-taking speeches like Lyndon Johnson's impassioned plea for the Civil Rights Act.
