PBS Ombudsman Covers KBDI 9-11 Pledge Drives

The Ombudsman Column
PBS, Yes and No

The Ombudsman2

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.

KBDI, Channel 12 will be featuring ‘9/11: Blueprint for Truth’ as a pledge drive fundraiser. Richard Gage, AIA, will be at the studio for on-air interviews during this historic broadcast.

We are thrilled with this development!

However, please do not call or email KBDI.

The staff at KBDI thank you all for your calls and emails regarding the broadcasts of ‘9/11 Press For Truth’ and the upcoming broadcast of ‘9/11: Blueprint for Truth.’ As much as they would like to be able to personally respond to everyone, they cannot as the volume of grateful responses is overwhelming their small staff!

But here are things you can do that will help the 9/11 Truth movement:

1) If you are outside the Colorado area, contact your local PBS station and deliver to them a copy of ‘9/11 Press for Truth,’ ‘Zero,’ and ‘9/11: Blueprint for Truth.’ Tell them of the great success KBDI Colorado Public Television has had with their pledge drive with ‘9/11 Press for Truth,’ and suggest they screen these films.

Don’t forget, this is a relationship you are building with your local PBS station. We may soon have some guidelines for you–but you know what to do: dress nicely, be polite, build credibility, thank them, follow up after they’ve had time to view the films, be patient, etc.

Look for an opportunity to volunteer for your local PBS station.

2) If you choose to support KBDI with a financial contribution when ‘9/11: Blueprint for Truth’ is screened on August 15, 2009, call or email and make a pledge. Colorado 9/11 Visibility will be at the phones and delighted to be overwhelmed by your calls!

70% of KBDI’s funding comes directly from the Colorado Community and mostly in the way of individual contributions — this is how they stay in business.

3) Donate anytime to KBDI!

Thank You!

9-11 Blueprint for Truth to Debut on Colorado Public Television

Still reeling from the success of the recent historic broadcast of 9-11 Press for Truth, the state of Colorado is about to get another strong dose of 9-11 truth. Making an appearance on Visibility 9-11 with Michael Wolsey, Executive Producer at KBDI Shari Bernson made the major announcement that KBDI will be again making history with the PBS world premier of Richard Gage's excellent documentary, 9-11 Blueprint for Truth on August 15, 2009 from 7:00 - 9:00 pm mountain time.

KBDI first made history with the 9-11 movement when they aired 9-11 Press for Truth during one of their periodic fund drives in June of 2009. This endeavor was such a success that the entire three hour broadcast was repeated at least 6 more times! This was an amazing night for me personally, full of emotion from A-Z. It was great to finally meet Bob McIlvaine and Ray, and also good to see Kyle again. The crew at KBDI was amazing. They were tight....professional. There was a feeling in the air. Perhaps it was just me but I could feel that everyone involved knew they were making history. I was honored to be part of this event and thank all those involved in making it possible. It was amazing to me afterward how many people who I know saw this broadcast. I am still running into people who saw this and me (I was on the phones that night and occasionally the cameras would pan to us dedicated volunteers!) on one of the broadcasts.

I look forward to the evening of August 15 at Five Points Media Center. Members of Colorado 9-11 Visibility will be on hand to answer phones and Richard Gage AIA will be in the studio for interviews during the fund raising breaks. Please let KBDI hear from you. Let them know how much you appreciate their courage in airing 9-11 documentaries and you want to see more! If it is within your budget, let KBDI know with a donation on August 15, 7:00 - 9:00 pm mountain time.

-Michael
