  GLAAD: June 18, 2001 - Urge Your PBS Station to Not Censor Scout's Honor

This is partly due to the origins of the PBS stations themselves, and partly due to historical license issues.
He is seen by many as a promoter of New Age propaganda and PBS is critized as giving his "new age nonsense" a mouthpiece and platform upon which his views are spread to millions of people.
PBS has also begun at least three new TV networks: PBS YOU, PBS Kids, and PBS DT2 (a feed of HDTV and letterboxed programming for digital affiliates), along with packages of PBS programs that are similar to local stations' programming, the PBS-X feeds.

 Public Broadcasting Service - Free net encyclopedia
Other shows are presented exclusively with funding from PBS stations and their members (without corporate funding) — as a result, the quality of such shows varies, and thereby either motivates the viewer to continue contributing to PBS or the station to find local corporate sponsors to insure its continued airing.
PBS stations are commonly operated by non-profit organizations or universities in their community of license.
Left-wing critics dislike PBS affiliates' dependence on corporate sponsorships and some are uncomfortable with shows such as Wall $treet Week which they see as promoting a corporate outlook without any corresponding series featuring opposing views from labor unions.

 FAQ   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-10)
PBS provides an abundance of material to stations, few, if any, of which carry all the programs PBS offers.
The list is by no means definitive, and in the end, management must make a subjective decision.
It is, for the most part, seed money that allows PBS and the individual stations to leverage additional funds from foundations, corporations, and, most importantly, the individuals who use the service.

The documentary on family law which PBS promised after our Campaign Against PBS's Father-Bashing Breaking the Silence is called Kids and Divorce: For Better or Worse, and it will be airing on PBS affiliates in mid-September.
PBS broadcast the anti-father documentary Breaking the Silence: Children's Stories on many of its affiliates last October.
PBS said that "plans call for the documentary to be produced and broadcast in Spring 2006" and that the "hour-long treatment of the subject will allow ample opportunity" for those of differing views to "have their perspectives shared, challenged and debated." We commended PBS for understanding our concerns and taking action to address the situation.

 Augusta Georgia: features@ugusta: Broadcast of `Schinder's List' unlike any other 2/23/97
HOLLYWOOD - ``Schindler's List,'' Steven Spielberg's 1993 Academy Award-winning epic about the Holocaust, is coming to television tonight, but it won't look like any other prime-time telecast you're used to - not on commercial television, anyway.
Another departure from the norm is the fact that there won't be local breaks for affiliates and that NBC won't run promotions for other programs.
In fact, tapes of ``Schindler's List'' and teacher study guides are already in 25,000 schools and libraries across the country.

 Approach PBS
The PBS system is set up as a network of 300 independent stations around the US, all of which broadcast a mixture of national programming, such as Nova, Frontline and the MacNeil/Lehrer News Hour, and regional material selected and/or produced by the individual station’s staff.
PBS stations are community oriented, and programmers are encouraged by signs that a broad cross section of the community supports the broadcast of a film.

 FTC Announces First Case Highlighting Application of Do Not Call Provisions to Corporate Affiliates
PBS provided consumer leads to POM, which POM expected PBS to first cross-check against both the National DNC Registry and PBS’s own do-not-call list of telephone numbers for consumers who specifically asked not to be called by PBS.
PBS caused POM to call telephone numbers in area codes across the country, without first paying the required annual fee for access to the telephone numbers within such area codes that are included in the DNC Registry.
PBS, however, is a separately-incorporated entity that markets a distinct product under a different name than its affiliate, and that difference in name reflects more than a geographic distinction; it identifies a different product.

 PBS   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-10)
First, PBS must acknowledge that the critics of the program are correct, and that something went terribly wrong with its production and internal review process that allowed this massively flawed program to be aired.
To do this, PBS must fund, produce, and broadcast a truly balanced and top quality program on the same subject that includes those voices silenced by Breaking the Silence -- the voices of the children and the fathers of divorce.
PBS should put all parties involved in the production, internal review, and support of this program – from top to bottom – under review with an eye to dismissal for foisting propaganda rather than truth and balance on a trusting public.

 PBS - The real meaning from Timesharetalk wikipedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-10)
PBS is not a broadcast network in the sense in which that term is usually used in the United States, though it is more like U.S. broadcast networks than other public broadcasters that own their stations.
Outdated justifications: PBS was founded to provide diversity in programming at a time when all television was broadcast (as opposed to today's cable or satellite transmission methods) and most communities received only three or four signals.
Liberal critics dislike PBS affiliates' dependence on corporate sponsorships and some are uncomfortable with shows such as Wall $treet Week which they see as promoting a corporate outlook without any corresponding series featuring opposing views from labor unions.

 CJR - Lessons of the Sixty Minutes Cave-In, by Lawrence Grossman
In 1980, at PBS, we were faced with the issue whether to broadcast a controversial program, a docudrama called "Death of a Princess," about the execution of a young Saudi princess for adultery.
Mobil launched a major ad campaign urging PBS not to run "Death of a Princess." I decided that on that basis alone, we had no choice but to run the program.
PBS could not afford to be seen as knuckling under to pressure from the government or especially from its major corporate underwriters, who, it turned out, continued their support undiminished.

 What Does Normal Mean to be on PBS
A list of PBS affiliates that will be showing “What Does Normal Mean?” is located at the bottom of this page.
If your station is carrying it (a YES vote on the list), we suggest you immediately contact the station to find out when the movie will be shown (not at 5:00 am, we hope) and offer to help the station with publicity and outreach.
For example, when “What Does Normal Mean?” was shown by the PBS affiliate in Albuquerque last spring, the station’s weekly news program featured segments of the film and a panel discussion about special education with educators, parents, and students as a run-up to the documentary.

Mitchell, 62, who joined PBS in 2000 and has led it to notable successes, told PBS managers at the network's annual meeting Monday that she would not seek a third three-year term after her current contract ends in June 2006.
PBS said it was "blatantly incorrect" to connect her departure with the controversy.

According to the PBS website, a film entitled “The Education of Shelby Knox” was funded in part by the taxpayers and in part by the Playboy Foundation.
What is less obvious is why PBS, an organization that associates itself with “Big Bird” and “Sesame Street” and as recently as last month represented itself to Congress as promoting family programming, would team up with the Playboy Foundation.
While only 15% of PBS’ annual budget comes from federal taxpayers, we believe it is important for PBS to account for the millions of dollars in federal funds that it receives so we may ensure taxpayer funds are being used appropriately.
