    A Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) host has a long history of anti-white racism and calling for the genocide of white people, evidenced by multiple Tweets sent from her personal account.“We anti-whites are coming for you,” Lindsay Ellis Tweeted in 2017. “We know where you live.”She then replied to her own tweet, saying that she gets “really excited about white genocide.”“It’s going to be the best genocide ever,” according to Ellis. “I made a pinterest board for it.” Trending: An Army of FBI Whistleblowers Are Ready To Testify Against Mueller Ellis hosts a show called “It’s Lit!” on PBS.“It’s Lit! is...

    Following a major Spanish city’s vote to boycott Israel, the leader of Spain’s third-largest party called the Jewish state a “criminal country” during an interview aired by public television broadcaster. Pablo Iglesias Turrión, leader of the Podemos far-left party, said this in an interview earlier this week on RTVE. “We need to act more firmly on an illegal country like Israel,” said Iglesias Turrión, whose party in 2015 won 20 percent of the votes in the general election just one year after its creation. Last week, a motion promoted by a local fraction of Podemos on the city council of...

    Nearly 100 environmental activists protested outside WGBH’s Brighton studios yesterday calling for conservative billionaire David Koch’s ouster from the public broadcaster’s board of trustees. “I am here today because David Koch is a climate denier and ’GBH has scientific programs and he should have absolutely no influence on PBS and public broadcasting,” said Nate Goldshlag of Arlington.
  • Thrice-Married NPR Snob Garrison Keillor Mocks Newt Gingrich as a 'Polygamist'

    Hypocrisy knows no bounds on the airwaves of National Public Radio, as their Minnesota-based star Garrison Keillor led off his latest edition of “A Prairie Home Companion” by mocking the GOP frontrunners as “the Mormon running against the polygamist.” This is a rich dig coming from Keillor, since he has been married three times – just as many times as Newt Gingrich. This was within three minutes of the program starting, just a little partisan liberal boilerplate before the folksy singers get started. Keillor mocked conservatives like Romney and Gingrich for believing "the solution to our current dilemma is to...

    Politics Daily ^ | March 9, 2011 | Jill Lawrence, Senior Correspondent
    In retrospect it seems inevitable. Take a hostile political environment, a red-hot spotlight and relatively inexperienced leadership, mix well, and you get tumult at NPR. Political naivete and tin ears are the threads running through the saga of Vivian Schiller, forced out as NPR's CEO on Wednesday, and Ron Schiller, no relation, who quit as NPR's top fundraiser on Tuesday. Vivian Schiller is widely credited for dramatic improvements in NPR's web presence and mobile applications, and she is a strong defender of NPR's journalism. But there's no ignoring the multiple embarrassments that are undercutting NPR's mission and efforts to keep...

    As we all know, the Republican Party is the single most evil organization in human history. Republicans hate the poor, hate the environment, hate teachers, hate foreigners, and generally hate joy and happiness in all its forms. And now the Daily Beast’s Samuel Jacobs says the GOP is poised to undertake their most heartless act yet: “kill Big Bird.” Jacobs is citing a report in the New York Times which describes House Republicans’ latest batch of proposed budget cuts, meant to reduce federal spending by $100 billion. “Dozens of programs” are on the chopping block, including the Corporation for Public...

    On Sunday, when KCET-TV stops broadcasting PBS programming after four decades as the primary PBS outlet in Los Angeles, most programs will move to another quickly revamped public broadcasting station in Orange County, KOCE-TV, which has rebranded itself as “PBS SoCal” and scrambled to expand cable system carriage. But KOCE has decided not to carry some programs, including “Independent Lens,” “Charlie Rose” and “Nightly Business Report.” So KOCE will send viewers to two other stations, KLCS-TV in Los Angeles, or KVCR-TV in San Bernardino, which reaches just 8 million to 10 million of the Los Angeles region’s roughly 17 million...

    A key gut-check for fiscal conservatives. Recently, the Discovery Channel’s top science reality show, Mythbusters, sent its stars, Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman, to meet with President Obama at the White House. The president, enjoying his role as guest star-in-chief, praised the show for making science “fun, exciting, and interesting.” Fans of Mythbusters can share bi-partisan agreement with the president on this point.Over the past eight years, the Mythbusters have educated millions on scientific principles by putting popular myths to the test. These tests often involve high explosives, high powered weapons, building intricate devices for tests, and a host of...

    Grover, the charismatically blue character from the classic televised children's show Sesame Street, seems to be playing both sides of the Israeli-Arab conflict of late. The furry 'muppet' is hosting a new version of Jewish-themed Shalom Sesame to be aired on Hanukkah – but has also been heard declaring “We're off to Palestine!” in an introduction to a Sesame Street video. The video segment named “A Gift from Grandma,” features a Palestinian Authority girl named Salwa who says that she lives in "Palestine" before she helps her grandmother embroider a dress for her. Some viewers were incensed at the use...

    MOSCOW — Only a handful of viewers may know it, but a 24-hour cable news station sponsored by the Russian government is making inroads in American cable markets. No longer viewing America through the lens of Communist ideology, the Russians’ new take on the United States is more subtle: Russia Today, offers a blend of social critique, debates on international issues and a dip into conspiracy theories that is helping ratings... Russia Today, which is financed by the Russian government, has 20 million potential viewers in the United States. It has poured money into a Washington bureau, with 40 editorial...

    (English-language translation) SAN JUAN - Puerto Rico Corporation for Public Broadcasting President Israel “Ray” Cruz confirmed that he will submit a plan to the Workers' General Union (UGT) on Friday to lay off an undisclosed number of its members. "We are submitting a layoff plan tomorrow which includes a group of union members," Cruz told radio station WKAQ. According to Cruz, a one-hour cut in the workday was discontinued on Thursday following the protest the UGT held the day before in front of [PBS affiliate] WIPR in Hato Rey. "Also because of a complaint that was filed against me on...

    NEW YORK - The Al Jazeera Network plans to announce on Thursday that it has signed a deal to run its news on Worldfocus, a syndicated nightly news program produced in New York and distributed throughout the United States. The deal would help the international news network, one of the top services in the Arabic-speaking world, broaden its reach in the United States, where it so far has been available to only a limited audience. Worldfocus, hosted by former NBC News correspondent Martin Savidge, is produced by New York City public broadcaster WLIW and syndicated to a number of Public...

    Those who watched the Republican presidential "debate" in Iowa Wednesday now understand why The Des Moines Register is such a lousy newspaper. "That was not just the worst debate of 2007, that was the worst debate in Western history, and that includes the ancient Greeks," said columnist Charles Krauthammer. "There is no record in any major European record of a debate this transcendingly and crushingly dull." Mr. Krauthammer arguably wasn't engaging in hyperbole. Imagine a boxing match in which the boxers aren't allowed to lay a glove on each other, and you have an idea of what this "debate" was...

    In an obvious effort to diminish Huck, Fred gets off a line he wants Iowans to chew on in the weeks ahead: Citing a face-off with America's enemies, Thompson asks: "Who do you want sitting on our side representing you? "That ought to be who you elect president." Then, in an attempt to put his foot down on debate silliness, he refused to play along on the raise-your-hand-if line of questioning on global warming. "I’m not doing handshows today," Thompson said to applause. Not offered a full minute to respond, Thompson said, "Well, then I'm not going to answer it."...

    DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - It's crunch time in the presidential race. Nine Republican and six Democratic candidates will meet this week in their final debates before the lead off Iowa caucuses, and lively exchanges are expected. The back-to-back debates -- Republicans on Wednesday, Democrats on Thursday -- come as both races in Iowa are toss-ups with just three weeks left before the voting begins. On the GOP side, Mike Huckabee, has vaulted to the front, overtaking longtime leader Mitt Romney, a former Massachusetts governor. Among Democrats, Hillary Rodham Clinton is locked in a three way race in Iowa with...

    Sunny days! The earliest episodes of “Sesame Street” are available on digital video! Break out some Keebler products, fire up the DVD player and prepare for the exquisite pleasure-pain of top-shelf nostalgia. Just don’t bring the children. According to an earnest warning on Volumes 1 and 2, “Sesame Street: Old School” is adults-only: “These early ‘Sesame Street’ episodes are intended for grown-ups, and may not suit the needs of today’s preschool child.” Say what? At a recent all-ages home screening, a hush fell over the room. “What did they do to us?” asked one Gen-X mother of two, finally. The...

    Business & Media Institute ^ | June 13, 2006 | Ken Shepherd
    The June 9 “Now with David Brancaccio” could well have been titled PBS’s “Tin-Foil Conspiracy Theatre” as the newsmagazine looked at death of the electric car from the Michael Moore-like lens of a left-wing filmmaker. Rather than entertaining the notion that a lack of market demand doomed the vehicles, “Now” instead pushed filmmaker Chris Paine’s arguments that the “clean” car’s demise was the result of a sinister plot by GM and Big Oil. That film, “Who Killed the Electric Car,” is scheduled for a June 28 release in New York and Los Angeles. Looking into the demise of the electric...

         In a talk with the editor of the liberal Texas Monthly magazine who hosts a monthly interview show on Texas PBS stations, former CBS anchor Walter Cronkite uncorked some more liberal opinions. In praising the CBS-boosting, Joseph McCarthy-trashing movie Good Night and Good Luck, Cronkite liked how it reminded Americans that "one nut could endanger the democracy," was "locking up our democracy in a very dangerous way," and persecuting people who were "simply good Americans." When pressed to compare Vietnam and Iraq, Cronkite declared that the comparison was "almost exact."      On Thursday, the Poynter Institute's Romenesko Web site...
