"NOVA", Brought to you by...

Does it bother anyone else out there that tonight's NOVA on PBS was sponsored by "The Koch Brothers" and "Lockheed Martin"?

The NOVA episode was about DNA genetic engineering.

The show was very informative (as usual) but they slip in little tidbits like, "Every baby born should be genetically profiled at birth." Then in the SAME breath, state that don't worry... no one will misuse that information.

They also state that it's just like the movie, "Gattaca" except it's nothing like the movie, "Gattaca".

DOUBLETHINK at it's finest/worst.

I think it is David Koch who sponsers NOVA. About 6 months ago I noticed he sponsered it. Hopefully NOVA doesn't let the big money influence their content.

BTW... this is my favorite NOVA episode. It is a must see!

The Koch Brothers are kind of like Joel and Ethan Coen. Can you tell the difference who the director is and who the producer is?

Does it matter?

Of course they have an influence! That's WHY they do it.

It amazes me how many people think that PBS is liberal.

It wouldn't surprise me if they did influence the content. That would fit their modus operandi. I am just unwilling to say that they did without proof.

A Warren Run Would Change Everything

Over the past few weeks, Elizabeth Warren has emerged as a leader of progressives on Capitol Hill. She led the charge against the part of the CRomnibus that gutted our financial regulations, and she is still fighting the White House over its nomination of bankster Antonio Weiss as Undersecretary of Domestic Finance in the Treasury Department.
