Big Bird’s kind of journalist comes to the Triangle

[1]A current and popular talking point amongst conservative politicans and candidates these days is the remarkably shortsighted and dimwitted idea of defunding public broadcasting.

Let’s hope this cockamamie idea gets zero traction in the public policy debate.

And if you’re interested in being reminded of the kind of high quality journalism that is a trademark of public broadcasting (and maybe even showing your support for it) be sure to RSVP today for our upcoming NC Policy Watch Crucial Conversation with legendary journalist and longtime PBS Frontline [2] producer Hedrick Smith [2]

The event is noon Tuesday, October 23 in Raleigh. Click here for more information [3].

Don’t miss out — seats are going fast. Hope to see you on the 23rd!
