Public Brainwashing Service (Public Broadcasting Service nickname)

The Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) was founded on October 5, 1970. Conservative critics have long held that PBS has a pro-liberal bias. PBS has been nicknamed the “Public Brainwashing Service” since at least 2005. In July 2010, LiamScheff.com—Art + Politics showed the PBS logo with “Public Brainwashing Service” written below and adding: “Brought to You by Involuntary Donations by Viewers Like You.”

In October 2010, after NPR’s firing of Juan Williams for remarks he made on Fox News, several conservative blogs argued to remove public funding of both NPR and PBS. The blog Weasel Zippers ran the “Public Brainwashing Service” logo on October 23, 2010.


Wikipedia: Public Broadcasting Service
The Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) is an American non-profit public broadcasting television service with 354 member TV stations in the United States which hold collective ownership. PBS operations are partially funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. Its headquarters are in Arlington, Virginia.

PBS is the most prominent provider of programming to U.S. public television stations, distributing series such as PBS NewsHour, Masterpiece, and Frontline. Since the mid-2000s, Roper polls commissioned by PBS have consistently placed the service as America’s most trusted national institution. However, PBS is not responsible for all programming carried on public TV stations; in fact, stations usually receive a large portion of their content (including most pledge drive specials) from third-party sources, such as American Public Television, NETA, WTTW National Productions and independent producers. This distinction is a frequent source of viewer confusion.

PBS also has a subsidiary called National Datacast (NDI), which offers datacasting services via member stations. This helps PBS and its member stations earn extra revenue.

I think the Public Brainwashing Service has something to do with it!

Proposition: Public Television is the propaganda arm of government (that’s taxpayer-funded) science. PBS gets its information and marching orders from the riders of the academic gravy train…and what is that?
