Last night on PBS my husband watched as the network begged for more pledges. Their feature was a story about Pete Seeger. The show glorified the man as a legend and gave negative views on the patriots who disagreed with his politics. The feature was so biased in Seeger’s world view, that clearly the producers of PBS believed that Communism and the American way of life are inextricably linked.
My husband called the number given and asked the pledge taker, “You guys are playing this show about Pete Seeger?”
The pledge taker proudly said, “Yes we are!”
My husband said, “The man is a Communist! This is not right, PBS is funded by taxpayers!”
She didn’t have anything to say, so he hung up.
