    I don't disagree with much of what you say, but the hard cold truth is that you can't run a broadcasting system without funds. The only way PBS could be "free" to do whatever they want, would be for them to be privately owned, and that's the conundrum that can't be denied. As long as they are dependent on government funding, AND corporate donations, they are on a tight rope.  This is the reality of their choices and their position.
