How About PPV for PBS?

January 18, 1997

Reading your article on "corporate messages" at PBS had me checking my calendar to make sure it wasn't 1984 ("Soft Commercials Air on KCET in a 'Test' for Funding," Dec. 28). Newspeak is apparently alive and well in, of all places, the hallowed halls of public broadcasting.

Perhaps a less hypocritical alternative would be a new channel that provides all the programming we now see on PBS without the constant shilling for money, the "corporate messages" and the self-congratulatory promos.

That would be a pay-per-view alternative well worth the investment.
