HOW PBS SOLD ITS SOUL TO A BILLIONAIRE
by Gaius Publius
A short news item, but something you should have on your radar for later. Not long ago David Sirota published an exposé of a scandal at PBS in the online magazine PandoDaily. LINK
There’s a billionaire trying to kill public pension funds and he’s washing the money through his foundation. The PBS station in New York, WNET, sought him out to make a series called “Pension Peril” (see Sirota for who initiated contact). Then NewsHour ran a bunch of segments because the producers wanted to. Then they all got caught (by Sirota).
