The Cleansing of PBS Has Begun

The fight to save any kind of independent media is on (has been for years). I suggest you call your Senators and Representatives and demand that PBS be left alone. It was, after all, home to William F. Buckley's Firing Line for a quarter-century, and that it is seen as "liberal" says more about the vantage point of this administration -- extreme right and drifting ever rightward -- than about the actual content of their shows.

Bill Moyers' Now was cut from an hour to a half-hour under intense pressure...this has been going on for a long time. The difference is, now the NYTimes is actually reporting such things.

Support Independent Media! Watch Democracy Now! online or listen on NPR. We must protect what's left of public, non-corporate-owned, independent media, and expand the diversity of opinions beyond Katie Couric's brainless cheerleading.
