|Glad to here it went to what you thought was a worthy cause.
|Is PBS still on the air?
|I would of thought they would be long gone by now.
|But then again they show commercials, sell most of their shows. I heard
|they even went so far as to show commercials during Sesame Street i.e. "This
|show brought to you by the letter P as in Pepsi"
|The final straw for me, was reading in the paper about the local PBS station
|manager taking home almost three times the salary, than any "for profit"
I put away my checkbook on May 28, 1996. On that day any
self-respecting news organization ran something like this:
"After eight days of deliberations, the jury found Jim McDougal guilty
of 18 of 19 charges, Susan McDougal guilty of all four charges against
her and Gov. Tucker guilty of two of seven charges against him."
That should have been the lead on the "News Hour With Jim Lehrer" but
The PBS lead was a taped interview with Hillary "The Chipmunk"
Clinton, wherein Lehrer asked three questions about the (now
completed) trial and then moved off into other subjects, such as what
a bad guy Bob Dole was for quitting his Senate job in order to run for
President and her next book.
