Christopher Lydon

There have been a couple of good articles coming to the defense of Christopher Lydon, host of the Connection, over his recent contract battles. Here is one reason to value this man– he has the moral courage to stand up to John Silber, and challege him on his terms. Here is a passage from the Globe:

In a remarkable 1990 interview with incendiary gubernatorial candidate John Silber, Lydon stopped the then-Boston University president in his tracks by comparing him to rap group Public Enemy and suggesting that his message ”pushed right up to the edge of revolutionism, sexism, sometimes even anti-Semitism.” (Coincidentally, Boston University holds the license to WBUR and has official oversight of the station.)
