You can't make wrong into right by doing wrong more effectively. It's time for real MEN to stand up and take back our families, our society, and our self respect. It is not a crime to be born a man. It is not a crime to act manly.

PBS Misandry continues

In response to thousands of loud complaints by MEN who are fed up with PBS's blatant misandry and hate propaganda film, Breaking the Silence," PBS announced that they will produce another documentary next year.

PBS has now issued the following statement in a dismal attempt to satisfy critics and appease men who have demanded changes in PBS sponsored anti-men political propaganda:
BREAKING THE SILENCE: CHILDREN'S STORIES chronicles the impact of domestic violence on children and the recurring failings of family courts across the country to protect them from their abusers. In stark and often poignant interviews, children and battered mothers tell their stories of abuse at home and continued trauma within the courts. The producers approached the topic with the open mindedness and commitment to fairness that we require of our journalists. Their research was extensive and supports the conclusions drawn in the program. Funding from the Mary Kay Ash Charitable Foundation met PBS's underwriting guidelines; the Foundation had no editorial influence on program content.
However, the program would have benefited from more in-depth treatment of the complex issues surrounding child custody and the role of family courts and most specifically the provocative topic of Parental Alienation Syndrome (PAS). Additionally, the documentary's "first-person story telling approach" did not allow the depth of the producers' research to be as evident to the viewer as it could have been.
PBS has received a substantial body of analysis and documentation from both supporters of the documentary and its critics.
It is clear to us that this complex and important issue would benefit from further examination. To that end, PBS will commission an hour-long documentary for that purpose. Plans call for the documentary to be produced and broadcast in Spring 2006. We expect that the hour-long treatment of the subject will allow ample opportunity for doctors, psychologists, judges, parent advocates and victims of abuse to have their perspectives shared, challenged and debated.

PBS has neither apologized for showing a blatantly misandrist hate propaganda film, nor even acknowledged that it was blatantly misandrist, nor taken it off the air. Their feeble promise to produce another similar film next year without gives no credence to fair non-prejudicial propaganda. Shame on PBS and their badly sexist bigot management. MEN will continue to DEMAND restitution and apology.

On there was a piece called PBS Redux about the reevaluation of the Hit Piece on Fathers. PBS is now acknowledging the bias on the program. Finally.

I saw that MND piece too. The PBS Ombudsman has criticized the PBS piece, as you say, but the management of PBS has ignored him and refused to apologize or discontinue showing the misandrist hate propaganda film.
