The months are moving so fast. Soon it will be summer and it will be political convention time.
So let's take a moment to consider what PBS will offer by remembering what it offered in 2008.
In September 2008, Ava and C.I. offered "TV: More sexism, more self-promotion." From that piece:
That point was driven home best on Thursday when the boys decided to again explore women. It was interesting to see so many speaking about women and notice that not one person speaking was, in fact, a woman. You had the three male 'historians' (will get back to them), you had Jim Lehrer, David Brooks and Mark Shields as 'analysts' and you had a man from PEW research plus Ray Suarez. Eight voices discussing women -- eight voices and all of the male. Don't count on the increasingly inept watchdogs to call it out. They didn't do a damn thing when women were sidelined by PBS in Denver and they're not going to do a damn thing now.
Here are the 8 voices.
Not one woman. Will PBS try to get away with that crap this year?
