Tell PBS: Bring Back Now!
NOTE: This petition has been delivered and is now closed. Thanks to all who added their voices!
It's official: Need to Know has failed to pursue the kind of hard-hitting reporting, full of diverse perspectives, that was regularly supplied by the shows it replaced, Now and the Bill Moyers Journal. Now Friday night on PBS looks a lot like the rest of public television's prominent news and public affairs shows--which, as FAIR's new studies have documented, means a pronounced tilt towards white male sources and a miniscule number of activists or public interest advocates.
Now and the Bill Moyers Journal regularly pursued hard-hitting reporting, full of diverse perspectives. A new FAIR study
shows that the show that has replaced them, Need to Know, fails to deliver the same kind of journalism, falling far short of
the intended mission of public broadcasting--to "provide a voice for groups in the community that may otherwise be unheard,"
to serve as "a forum for controversy and debate," and broadcast programs that "help us see America whole, in all its diversity."
Live up to your mission. Bring back Now.
