Assorted readings pertaining to public TV...

Posted by Mitchell - August 30, 2005 (entry 351)

The Salt Lake City Weekly reports on PBS-related activism in Utah. Evidently, Utahans are demanding balance to those liberal PBS shows (both of them!) which simply permeate the network (snicker). I wonder what kind of conniption fit they'd throw when they see a real liberal network.

In real news, our friends at The NewStandard are reporting some real news about PBS -- a forthcoming PBS show about farmers caters more to corporations rather than to real-live farmers. (By the way, if you're feeling ambivalent about throwing money toward PBS, consider donating to The NewStandard, which could use your financial support and is far more worthy of the support.)
