Unabashed Partisan Commentary at the Expense of reporting

Montana
Feedback:

PBS Newshour and really anything that PBS puts out has become unabashed left wing propaganda. Since you are publicly funded, it is your duty to be neutral reporters. Instead, you are 'dug in' partisans.

At least ONE of your stories every single day will be a race bait story. I am so disgusted with CPB and PBS that I will not watch your programs anymore. You have forgotten your dignity and responsibilities as reporters.

Come back to a strong stance as pro American and pro Traditional reporting. What do I mean? Objective and neutral reporting. Is that too much to ask/expect? Not if you purport to serve the public.

That is all.

Sunday Morning

Mississippi
Feedback:
Aeysha Roscoe. Really? She has the voice of a screechy, 14 year old. Her cackling laugh, her weird accentuations ( and I have a home in the Mississippi Delta), her volume and emphasis dive bombs, she's really hard to listen to...especially on a quiet morning. I rather listen to silence. I don't have a lot of money but every time I think of priorities for giving Aeysha Roscoe cancels out any thought of NPR. I give to MPB local programming, WWNO is a total loss- repetitive and boring. But Aeysha Roscoe- I'd pay to have her shut up.

Weekend Edition Sunday

Massachusetts
Feedback:
I had listened to every episode of Weekend Edition Sunday for decades, with great pleasure. But since Ayesha Rascoe became the host I am no longer able to do so. My Sundays have been significantly diminished as a result. The main reason is her voice. It is so grating that I find it difficult to believe she was chosen as the voice of a major news platform for NPR. In addition to the fingernails on a blackboard quality of her voice, she sometimes drops her 'g's, and often slightly slurs, seemingly in too much of a hurry. She is an excellent journalist and interviewer, but she does not have a voice for radio. I say that having been a broadcast journalist for almost 25 years.

Bias political views

Virginia
Feedback:
Shame on CPB for allowing and supporting such politically driven, bias reporting by NPR. Tax payers should be upset that our federal taxes are Publicly funded broadcasting companies with their own political agenda driving what they report as news, instead of facts. Does (anti) National Public Radio think that the average American Citizen needs them to tell them how to think? Report the facts, we owe it to our future as a Nation.

Mrs. Amanpour with professor Snyder from Yale are totally biased and Blind, bought out to left . CNN comments by Trump stated by Amanpour and professor are warted comments. This program and PBS are totally bought out and are blind. Other PBS programs that are straight reporting that are not political are very informative but other programs are pro dictatorship pro control of society deceived by lies.

Lidia Bastianich

New York
Feedback:

For all her cooking savvy, Ms. Bastianich and her crew need to get up to date on the downside of almond culture... A full gallon of water is required to create each and every almond. Wonderful to have folks immigrating but then engaging in expansive almond cultivation... Not so great... And when included in a PBS presentation downright dumb. Was anyone at PBS watching the store?

Steve Gundry

Connecticut
Feedback:

Why are you risking your reputation( and thinking audience) by broadcasting programs like Dr. Steve Gundry. Fact checking and verifying "science" ads like his would lead anyone with a computer to find out that he is simply selling and his claims are without scientific merit. This makes me wonder about CPB ethics. I certainly won't consider donating anytime soon due to lack of trust.

Leading the lambs to slaughter

Maine
Feedback:
I was appalled last week by your disregard of the UN appeal for dramatic action on the climate emergency within the next five years. The BBC and DW news broadcasts gave one third of their news time to this crisis. Are you afraid your corporate donors will withdraw their funding? Are you afraid you’ll scare your audience? They SHOULD be afraid and they need to act NOW. And why are stock market numbers more important than the amount of carbon our atmosphere?

Frontline on Clarence and Ginny Thomas

Michigan
Feedback:
This show is such blatant propaganda it makes me sick to see it painted as pure fact. Gunny Thomas is referred to as always having been on the "far right". Just because someone stands for conservative principles doesn't equate them to skinheads. This continuous narrative to make any and all conservatives out to be racist caricatures vastly over simplifies the problems of this country and only helps to contribute further to its spiral downwards. You people at PBS are helping to flush the foundations of western culture down the toilet of emotional knee jerk responses.

Could Nick Shiffrin do a story on whether the citizens held in foreign jails in Russia or Iran might actually be US spies? The assumption always seems to be these are kidnappings without cause and the focus is on the families wanting their loved ones home. What is the rest of the story?

Odd Squad Language

New York
Feedback:
My family are avid PBS viewers of you children's programming, for reference my children are 6 year old twins. We have been watching PBS since they were toddlers with Sesame Street and Daniel Tiger. My son loves Odd Squad. Odd squad based on your ratings is for children 5-8. I have begun to question whether or not some of the content is appropriate for any child in that age range. Some of the language and situations being portrayed are a little older than this age group. What prompted me to write this complaint is a phrase my son has come across from one of the agents. This is just one example but it was my proverbial straw, Agent O'Donahue says "Gag me with a spoon". To most adults this is an innocuous phrase but to an impressionable 6 year old who all but worships the characters of Odd Squad it has lead to some issues at home and school. I am highly disappointed in the writers of this children's show and are out of touch with what appropriate language is for a 5-8 yr old. The development of a 5 yr old and an 8 yr old are entirely different and what is appropriate for one is not for the other. We will no longer be watching Odd Squad in our home and I will scrutinize other PBS kids shows from this point on.

KALW's Mind Over Matter asked listeners to go to KALW website and complete the survey. Well where is it?

When and Why did you change the day/time of Mind Over Matter? It is the only show I know of that offers entertainment while exercising your mind.

See the article in the 28 January Springfield News-Leader: Missouri lawmakers to get 5% raises over next 2 years, first since 2007. Looks like Missouri Representatives are taking library defunding personally; we should too. Kudos to Gabrielle Hays for her insightful article.

Why would I give to this corporation that lies with your unfair bias for democrats, Biden, and the Woke agenda that is tearing our country apart. It makes me sick every time i hear begging for money when we, the taxpayers, are funding this corporation.
