CONCERN: News about the science, politics, and legal proceedings related to wireless radiation safety are not being shared

Illinois
Feedback:

Submitted 10/16/22: I've been watching the science on electromagnetic fields, specifically power frequencies and wireless transmission frequencies, for 22 years. Despite the fact that there were already concerns expressed by the EPA iby 1980 regarding the carcinogenicity of RF and the adequacy of the FCC exposure limits (before EPA studies were defunded), and already by the 1970s the Navy had compiled over a thousand studies showing biological effects at low intensity levels, and already a great majority of the modern studies are showing biological effects of EMF at levels that are not supposed to be biologically active according to the now out-dated thermal paradigm (which itself was based on animal behavior studies and "hunches" back in the last century), and despite the fact that the NIEHS/National Toxicology Program found "clear evidence of carcinogenicity" at non-thermal levels of RF, backed up by the Ramazzini Institute's similar studies at even lower intensity levels---PBS and NPR seem to be uninterested in investigating and sharing findings -- not industry PR -- with the public. No major insurers or reinsurers will cover liability for the wireless industry should the emissions from their wireless devices and infrastructure cause health harm to users--why? because they have looked at the evidence and they don't want to lose their shirts on another tobacco debacle. Last year a federal judge in Environmental Health Trust v. FCC ruled that current exposure limits are not based on a full review of the current science----that in fact, no federal agency has conducted such a full review, although they all give semi-reassurances of safety on their public information websites. The wireless industry---which funds much of public broadcasting--tells the FCC what to do, and they help place their own people as director and commissioners. They get laws passed in Congress that take away the rights of citizens and municipalities to have any say in where telecom infrastructure goes, what is used and how. They get waivers from FCC to test body SAR on cell phones a slight distance away from the test "body," (a gel filled receptacle) which then registers a much lower SAR than would be experienced by someone carrying a cell phone in their pocket. Brain cancer lawsuits filed in 2001 are only coming to a hearing now in 2022 because of convenient delays perpetrated by the industry. There is so much wrong in the telecom realm, but public broadcasting is not covering any of it---and you have an investigative team for Frontline that could provide the perfect venue with experienced investigative reporters, but year after year, Nothing. As the lawyers say, there is no smoking gun to seek out----all the information is readily available and out there, you just have to put the dots together, and know which "experts," committees and commissions are actually associated with the industry, and not independent of its influence.

This situation has made me very cynical about the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, PBS, NPR, etc. You have every man, woman, and child --all your constituents--exposed to this in nearly every environment they sleep, live, work, grow, and study in. All ages, including pre-birth. They trust that if Public Broadcasting doesn't say there's a problem, then everything's all right. Well, it isn't all right, for people, or for flora and fauna, but you have to be willing to put the present and future well-being of your constituency first, and hold a shady industry accountable for its continued obfuscation of the facts.

I speak from my own experience on committees with the telecoms, and years of communications with scientists. There is a problem. Go there!

Corporation for Propaganda Broadcasting is more accurate

California
Feedback:

You should call yourselves the Corporation for Propaganda Broadcasting. Could your programming get any more unscrientic misleading and leftist?

You are a national disgrace. De-fund the police? De-fund fake organizations like you. Wouldn't be surprised if the whole board of directors is taking payola directly from the CPP on top of the federal government to spread state sponsored narratives and propaganda. You are traitors to the United States of America and the US Constitution.

I wish more Fox, Newsmax, and other media outlets’ viewers would watch truthful and useful news as presented by your well-balanced and professional staff. But it will take Trump’s jailing along with his henchmen, and their acolytes dismissed from power, to truly open their minds. Too much to hope for?

PUBLIC BROADCAST

I am a supporter of public broadcast!! What is the price for " free voices and free press? The price cannot be compared! Many have lost their lives, getting the news to the people.

LET US STOP, this ANARCHY!!! We, are a "Free People and Nation!" Many, a news correspondent have died getting, the Nations news. Let, those you believe in the " FREEDOM of the PRESS" whatever the media, "TAKE A STAND " for free press.

Pinkalicious "The New Girl"

Alabama
Feedback:
My daughter is four years old and loves to watch Pinkalicious. This morning she was watching "The New Girl" episode. A new family moves to town and its two men and a little girl. The man introduces his "husband" to Pinkalicious' family. I am so upset that this lifestyle was introduced to my preschooler with no parental warning or rating etc. I would not have let her watch the episode if I had of known that material was in there. It is not the job of APT or PBS to decide when my child gets introduced to homosexuality. And frankly in my opinion it should not be in preschoolers programming. They are very impressionable at this age and a certain agenda or lifestyle should not be made to seem okay thru a familiar children's program they love to watch. Something should be done about this! I see your organization helps fund the programming. Could there at least if nothing else parental warnings be put in place so parents wont be caught off guard that dont want their children watching episodes containing this subject matter? Thank you

America and the Holocat

Utah
Feedback:
Per the expected from Mr Burns et al, this is a superb production. Sadly many of the people who should see it won’t. This is compounded by the six hour length of the series which disengages the marginally interested. A 90 minute version promoted as an introduction to the Holocaust might generate greater viewership particularly among those with little familiarity with the subject.

WW2 Obsession for Fundraising

Oregon
Feedback:
If it's not bad enough for all the other main broadcasting networks/channel's stations to do all episodes, even changing which shows, so they are all WWII &/or nazi based/mentioning episodes for 5 months straight UNTIL something else (like a certain celebrity dies or certain holiday that locals that run the station give a or too much fabout) happens... then right back to same theme for the past year (year or 2 before it was all religious &/or all christian story/based episodes of all those shows). Now PBS is showing 4 or 5 hours straight of holocaust ALL WEEK?! Whotf would want to fund because they're watching that kind of c***? Before it was 10 or even 15 year old things likely everyone that had seen any of the fund raising knew/remembered seeing that before or even donating some to help in past decades but why would watching more of WW2 make them think "people will pay us/donate if we show them MORE of the holocaust/deaths/nazi-themed shows they've been "watching" for the past year or 2"? Only thing worst would be if they thought everyone wants to become christian (or another religion) again & only watch that themed shows on it (again).... oh &/or if it was all voting commercials like on the other broadcast channels. Yeah people see/read the news not everyone wants to see more of it all day/night to the point they would pay PBS to see it (there are other cable/satellite channels that would/do show that instead that could cost them less). Does PBS/OPB have no clue how long OTHER wars in OTHER countries/areas of the world have been going on &/or still happening? LOL Just as bad as the basic public school system. If "you" are going to show 1 themed thing for weeks/months at least show DIFFERENT shows/episodes & different angles of it like the nature-themed and some music-themed fund raising was. Last time I watched or saw a World war 1 &/or 2 show on was when it was actually near ONE holiday that was about it not EVERY holiday that was war/military(or christian) based. It's like a medical news story becomes trending then instead of showing shows & episodes viewers would want to see they replace them with barely related medical or medical mentioning episodes. Why not have episodes of smoke/ashes & fires for 10 years? LOL Those also human caused events have been happening for a long time too(I'm surprised the other broadcast networks/channels don't show fire/smoke, NOT cig or drug/substance smoking which they have instead in the past, based shows all the time). Nice to not see the same 2 or 3 book &/or DVD 5 or10 or 15 year old based themes, but replacing them with depressing WW2 based theme/s? Really?

She is wonderful! We love waking up to her voice on weekdays & always look forward to her Classical Sunrise. She plays a wide range of classical pieces and educates at the same time. Very rewarding to listen. No “same old chestnuts”. Deeply appreciated. When there’s a substitute we definitely miss her. Wish she wasn’t away so often but can imagine getting up at o’dark thirty every day must be exhausting. Thank you, WETA for bringing Linda Carducci to your station & giving her the early weekday morning time slot.

Cult comparisons - MagaRepublicans & People's Temple - similarities are there, let's side by side compare them

Massachusetts
Feedback:
Jim Jones & Donald Trump have such similarities (from the documentary film on Jim Jones) if that documentary had any truth at all. It isn't hard to recognize the pattern. Approaching the MAGA Republicans with that exposure is only fair and required to reveal the mindset of cult figures milk their sycophants, and fans. That is exactly how the religious group worked against their own self interest and drank that kool-aid. It is kind for media to identify the peril as real, and recurring under the leaders thrilled to be followed! It's an illness. Exposure is patriotism!

Absence of Covering President Biden Address on September 1, 2022

Maryland
Feedback:
I am a long term supporter of PBS. I was shocked that public broadcasting did not show President Biden address to the nation yesterday. The decision not to show the President's remarks was a disservice to many people who don't have cable and to the nation as well. I don't contribute to PBS to be uninformed.
