Public Broadcasting and the Public Trust

Public Broadcasting and the Public Trust




-- Details, with in-depth reports, why conservatives in Congress are so angry about PBS and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
-- Includes a record of Public Broadcasting's resistance to change, including an attempt made by Congress in the Telecommunications Act of 1992, to induce PBS to reform itself.
-- Must-reading for anyone who believes that Masterpiece Theater and Sesame Street represent the majority of the types of programming that PBS funds and supports, and who thinks that the new Republicans in Congress are raising a fuss over nothing.

Composed of articles from the journal, COMINT, published by the Center for the Study of Popular Culture, the only journal addressing public broadcasting from a conservative perspective. This book is the only critical account of PBS that has been published in that institution's entire 28-year history.
