PBS set to reveal 'stealth campaign' to cut healthcare, education

Wednesday September 20, 2006

PBS newsmagazine NOW this week plans to target what producers are calling, "a stealth campaign for deep cuts in social services," RAW STORY has learned.

The program is to examine ballot initiatives across the nation that it will characterize as deceptively-titled attempts to slash funding in health care and education. "Initiatives with titles like 'Taxpayers' Bill of Rights' and 'SOS - Stop Over Spending'" will be the focus of the segment.

The program is also set to assert that one wealthy New Yorker is secretly helping to orchestrate the push by providing major funding for the nationwide initiatives. Questionable legal and campaign tactics will also be highlighted.

Whether or not the program will attempt to link the "stealth campaign" to previous attempts to slash funding for public broadcasting is unknown.

On Friday, the NOW website will launch a state by state guide to the propositions--and related campaign financing.
