CMA shakes it on recent public broadcasting issues

Posted by Mitchell - August 4, 2005 (entry 344)

Forgot to say this earlier: On July 28, 2005, CMA joined a coalition with nine national-scale public interest organizations in signing on a letter sent to the board of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting for, shall we say, some recent less-than-public activities. (Hey, CMA watched NOW too! Can we have $14,700? We'll even get the numbers right. Credentials: We've produced a study about our local PBS affiliate.)

For more recent commentary regarding public broadcasting, there's this article in New Criterion asking "What's Wrong with Public Broadcasting?". And be sure to check out a recent interview CMA had on WZRD on the day of Senate hearings on public broadcasting.
