This week, two educational shows go head-to-head. One plays on your iPhone, the other doesn’t.
Libertarian-leaning conservative talk radio host Jason Lewis is now on the iPhone! I’ve listened to Jason for many years and just recently downloaded his new (and free) iPhone app. It’s my favorite way to listen. If you’re tired of politics and prefer straight facts, tune into Jason’s show. Also, check out Jason’s book, “Power Divided is Power Checked.”
This September, PBS launches a new series featuring Mexico’s President Felipe Calderón. Time Magazine reports: “In an effort to boost Mexico’s weakened tourism industry … (Calderón) will bravely lead camera crews into caverns, up rivers and down sink-holes, often while wearing an Indiana Jones-style hat.”
As America’s economy flounders and Calderón fails to keep U.S. citizens and agents safe within Mexico, PBS is brazenly airing a show to bolster Mexico’s economy. HotAir exposed PBS’ excessive salaries and access to taxpayer funds here. If this is “public” broadcasting, what is the American public getting by subsidizing Calderón’s show?
