The New Nova -- A Letter to PBS


I noticed several broadcasts of PBS sport the Koch Brothers, right wing humongous contributors to all things Republican extreme, as sponsors to selected shows.  I wrote PBS a letter of protest and suggest if you care enough about the objectivity of PBS you do the same. I wrote:

I always have LOVED PBS.  I watched the episode on Drones and noticed one of the sponsors of PBS now is the Koch Brothers.  That compromises the objectivity of your broadcast.  I noticed too there was no mention of the horrific killing of so many innocent families by the "collateral damage" of drone attacks but rather the program concentrated solely on the technological wonder of the remote killing devices.

I have held off contributing to WGBH and will when and IF the right wing extremist group(s) are NOT part of your sponsorship.  Sad that it has come to this when the bastion of intellectual thought, creativity and a questioning of belief systems which WAS WGBH is compromised significantly by the contributions it takes from right wing groups ESPECIALLY the Koch Brothers.  They have turned rancid the political debate in our country, polarized and corrupted the nation with the pollutive effects of gargantuan money into politics.  Now PBS, a station I relied on for objective information, holds hostage what once was the good name in educational television.

My contribution probably does not mean much to PBS but you can be sure I will spread the word of this ugly morph of a station that was once excellence in journalism and now is not.  What a shame. 

My Blog Note: YET AGAIN ANOTHER REASON TO RELEGATE THE EXTREMIST REPUBLICAN PARTY TO THE DUST BIN OF HISTORY AND WORK HARD TO ELECT DEMOCRATS THROUGHOUT THE LAND.
