NPR : CPB Memos Indicate Level of Monitoring
This stuff is really getting me angry. I regretfully wrote emails to both of my PBS stations telling them I can't give them money because of this sort of stuff. I also told them I am very unhappy that my money might end up in the hands of the Wall Street Journal, Fotune or other corporate entities. I'm not happy about the integration of commercial media into the titles of shows on PBS let alone any sort of big media "product placement" in PBS shows. They have enough influence.
