The Ombudsman Column
PBS, Yes and No
By Michael Getler

What follows is more of a grab bag rather than an ombudsman's mailbag.
Included are a couple of unusual but not widely known episodes that unfolded last week that I thought might be of interest more broadly to PBS viewers. They can be seen to have at least some association with PBS in the way they were presented or appeared to the public. Yet PBS, as an enterprise, didn't have anything to do with them.
Thank you to Jason Charles for making this video, and congratulations to everyone at Colorado 9-11 Visibility for this hugely successful event. Hopefully this will cause other PBS stations to pick this up. As someone who had something to do with 9/11: Press For Truth, this was a real treat. Thank you.
