Norman Lear: Save Documentaries on PBS!


Norman Lear: Save Documentaries on PBS!

Michael Winship

Legendary television writer and producer Norman Lear, creator of such landmark comedy series as All in the Family, Maude and The Jeffersons, and co-founder of People for the American Way, has spoken out in support of independent documentary filmmakers struggling to protect the broadcast of their work on public television.


Although I do not watch TV, I do listen to NPR, PBS’s cousin. When I hear the “brought to you by BAE” message, I know that other venues have to evolve. The “public” media have been co-opted. That ship has sailed…


Sadly, i agree. Wish with all my heart that PBS & NPR still believed in true, investigative reporting, but it doesn’t seem to be the case. Propaganda Broadcasting Station.
