Thursday, July 3, 2008 | I went searching for this site today—actually any alternative news media site—after reading yet another blinkered, philistine, pig-ignorant editorial in today’s Union Tribune. Yes, it’s sad to see the decline and fall of PBS as they take still more blood money from corporations, clog their airtime with advertisements and yet still bleat out pleas for more donations from the public. It’s got to be frustrating for the overworked, underpaid staff there at KPBS as well. But the ratio of actual information I want and need to other fluff and corporate-sponsored ads has gotten way out of proportion since the Neocons started their campaign to kill any true PUBLIC broadcasting. If there’s one thing I look forward to with the end of George II’s reign, it’s the faint ray of hope that a sympathetic Congress will save PBS from the abyss.
