#IDAActionAlert: Public Broadcasting is Under Attack!
URGENT! This week, public broadcasting came under attack from several members of Congress, who criticized a wide range of documentaries on PBS, including Kumu Hina and The New Black - both of which aired on Independent Lens - and Baby Mama High. CPB President/CEO Patricia Harrison came to public broadcasting's defense, citing a wide and diverse range of documentaries, but we still need you to express how vitally important it is to protect public broadcasting.
We urge you to call your representatives in Congress and pledge to support the diversity of documentaries on PBS and freedom of expression. Take five minutes to tell them why public broadcasting is important to you -- not just once, but often, even daily.
