PBS-related matters all congealing today...

Posted by Mitchell - April 28, 2005 (entry 302)

We've got a bunch of things today involving public television, in Chicago and nationally.

First, on the local level, we've got word that a former host of Chicago Tonight is hosting a forum sympathetic to military recruiters. (Hey, how about one sympathetic to military resisters or those opposing the militarization of our schools?)

Second, going nationally, there are two developments. One is from our friends at the Center for Digital Democracy who report that PBS national suppressed studies which show that PBS doesn't have a liberal bias problem. PBS not a font of liberal bias? Gosh, we could have told you that.

And finally, a bunch of national-scale groups including Free Press, Consumers Union, and Common Cause have launched a campaign calling for national hearings on public broadcasting.
