Going to the Frontline
May 21, 2009 - Lee Smith
I have no intention of making a pitch for public broadcasting, but I believe some of the news/analysis shows on PBS are among the very best. As a proponent of capitalism, I think they should simply do away with PBS and air these shows elsewhere. In any case, let me re-recommend The News Hour with Jim Lehrer as well as the Charlie Rose show. I think I plugged both a while back.
To them, let me add that a truly insightful program is Frontline, produced by WGBH in Boston. I added Frontline this week to my Web site favorites on this blog. I'm not sure what night it airs (it might be Tuesday), but I've enjoyed going over the Web site and watching previous shows. Two very informative recent reports involve the financial meltdown and Bernie Madoff's long-running Ponzi scheme.
I'm not sure, but I believe Frontline has been on the air for many decades. It seems like we used to watch it every once in awhile in high school. In any case, I hope social studies and history teachers consider it to be a resource.
