PBS and the $3.5M carrot ...

    Pandering Broadcast System?

    A 2-year PBS series about public pension cuts has some troubling aspects, first and foremost the show's sugar daddy -- billionaire former Enron honk with an agenda that seems to go against everything "Pension Peril" tries to present -- is putting $3.5 million of capital into the venture, with a caveat.


    This part seems most troubling:

    Seems like PBS is playing fast and loose with its rules. Or maybe it doesn't care.

    Good story either way.

    PBS has been sucking up to the big-money right-wingers for some time now.

    Many of their puportedly 'news' shows are preposterous exercises in false equivalence.

    They're giving the money back.

    Archer Daniels Midland wonders what the fuss is about.
