Crappiest PBS Station In America Gets Noticed

I was wondering if everybody in the Mile High City was, well, high. Apparently not.

I'm with the viewer who cancelled his KBDI membership and wrote, "What's next on the KBDI hit list, films about President Obama being a citizen of Kenya or about how health-care reform wants to kill your grandmother?"

It's nothing new for KBDI to staff the phone banks during pledge drives with supporters of whatever is on the air. Conservationists have been recruited to answer phones during nature broadcasts. Still, the arrangement raises questions about whether the station is making deals with interest groups to carry programming in exchange for pledge support.

Good to see somebody else noticed this disinformation being promoted on a PBS station.
