In the spring of 1995, Bill Moyers served as the senior news analyst on the NBC Evening News with Tom Brokaw. He provided regular commentaries about the major news and issues of the day, including affirmative action, welfare reform, Republican tax cut proposals and OJ Simpson.”The attraction of this is trying to help people make sense of all the creatures that pop out of the holes and disappear into the night before you get a good look at them-to help people make sense of the night,” Moyers said in a telephone news conference at the time. “I have missed the daily journalism that I did at CBS.” (1995)
