The tragedy of innocent deaths in the #Israel #Hamas war and the disproportionate misery wreaked upon the #Palestinian people is heartbreaking. That the U.S. votoed a resolution for a truce makes them utterly complicit. I was also totally disappointed that #PBS broadcast U.S. soldiers in uniform performing #hanukkah songs. By all means, broadcast civilian Hanukkah performances. It is not lost on me that Hanukkah celebrates a military victory, but for the many who celebrate Haukkah in the context of peace, the tragedy of these times is intensified by the thoughtlessnees of that choice.
This report does not include "the sound of children screaming" but does include #911 calls from students and teachers.
It's a tough report to get through, but it's important that we bear witness and use this knowledge to insist on fundamental changes in policy and #policing that make these everyday occurrences, rare.
#Uvalde was a total failure in every way by literally every officer on the scene.
It was 20 minutes before they accidentally discovered classrooms were full (and could've been hiding other shooters)
I wrote for @BylinesScotland about why the @ScottishGreens have voted for a policy of banning behaviour modification practices like ABA and PBS - 'Positive Behaviour Support', usually a repackaging of ABA.
Applied Behaviour Analysis is sometimes described as 'conversion therapy for autistic people'. It shares its philosophy, much of its history and many practices in common with conversion therapy for gay and gender nonconforming people.

Lucy Worsley's new series on Agatha Christie is out on PBS.
Just watched the first episode. Highly recommend!
If you need a dose of hope this show centered on Copland and teaching the next generation is a good antidote.
I hope that everyone who works for, listens to, and/or contributes to #NPR, #PBS, and other public media organizations are doing everything they can to avoid giving air to #OrangeHitler and doing everything that they can to promote community and decency. If you don’t understand why, ask school teachers, college professors, and librarians in #FascistFlorida or health care providers in #Texas.
How do you sign ‘one way’ or ‘don’t walk’ in American Sign Language? ✋
In this classic 1980 Sesame Street clip, Linda, the local librarian, demonstrates how to sign signs—specifically a series of pedestrian directions commonly found in a city. ⛔️⚠️🛑

Here is a Gripping documentary from PBS on the situation in Ukraine.
I plan on watching this tonight. I encourage you too as well!
@bghote The new cost-cutting #WarnerBrosDiscovery regime that rebranded #Max also unceremoniously canceled new original development in many countries; quietly removed multiple original movies, series, and dozens of catalog episodes without notice (including 200 of the long-running childrens’ show #SesameStreet that originally aired on #PBS—your tax dollars gone); and canceled several nearly-complete movies.
They are no longer a good steward for anything, especially #DoctorWho.

The #PBS #AmericanMasters doc film Carry It On has won an International #Emmy about the folk singer Buffy St. Marie, who since her appearance in the 60's #GreenwichVillage folk scene has said she is an #Cree Indian born on a #reservation in #Saskatchewan.

In the late #1970s, two #Chinese restaurants became the unlikely #epicenter of #LosAngeles’s burgeoning #PunkScene. The emerging #music form featured fast-paced songs & hard-edged melodies with #AntiCapitalist messaging.

Klares: nein von mir.
Der #Gazastreifen, bis vor kurzem Lebensgrundlage für über 2 Millionen Menschen, wird dem Erdboden gleich gemacht.

Geometric concepts are featured in this #Math Shorts video by #Planet Nutshell for #PBS Learning Media, explaining various angles like complementary, supplementary, adjacent, and vertical. Demonstrating how to find unknown angles by understanding their types, the #video provides practical tips such as subtracting from 90º for complementary angles in a right angle and using angle addition for adjacent angles. 📐📏🧠

"On Nov. 2, the #PBS #NewsHour’s foreign affairs correspondent Nick Schifrin reported on what he called '#Hamas propaganda videos.' Fair enough. Except that it would be virtually impossible for mainstream US news media to also matter-of-factly refer to public output from the #Israeli government as '#propaganda.'”
The prices of #streaming services keep going up! Or you are being asked to endure advertisements where previously there were none.
The best deal in streaming IMO is #PBS Passport. For $5/mo you get access to their great program library.
You can live stream your local PBS station, though that's free in their app.
With garbage TV getting more expensive, why not elevate yourself with PBS.

"It's not your own fault. It is the fault of the way we have organized our #economy, the way we've allowed certain things to develop unchecked and uncontrolled. There's no reason for anybody to be poor in #America." – #ProgressAndPoverty, 1879, by #HenryGeorge
We've long known yet nothing fundamentally has changed.
"...#Workers begin to say, 'If I, as a member of this #society lack the ability to pay my bills, and to feed my family, then I am not a free #citizen of a healthy #republic.'" (the next line is white #violence ignoring #slavery, a common theme in #PBS #documentaries).
"#Gilded is not golden. Gilded has the sense of a patina covering something else...the rot underneath.
Nothing, fundamentally, has changed.
We are currently recreating the conditions that led to the greatest mass #extinction in the history of our #planet, exponentially more destructive than the one that ended the 160 million year reign of #dinosaurs that came after.
While we're currently doing so on a much smaller scale, we are doing so at a much faster pace.

🎧 📺 THE WAR ON DISCO will air/stream Monday, October 30 at 9/8c on #PBS AMERICAN EXPERIENCE.
It's no secret that the backlash against Disco was racist and homophobic. People of Color and queer people came together to dance and have fun, in public, in a safe space, and the "Afraid Somebody Somewhere Might Be Having Fun" crowd hated us for it.

i love This Old House and am not even gonna lie, it's because of all the New England accents. i love Tom's accent SFM.
so they have a new crew member, Lee Gilliam and i just cracked up at how crisp his Bawstawn accent is. we need more Lee's in US mass media with those strong regional accents.
This Frontline piece on Elon Musk taking over Twitter shows a lot. A whole lot.
We just watched part one of Ken Burns' series, The American Buffalo, on PBS. It is another beautifully done piece and also a sad commentary on how capitalism and racism destroy our world. Recommend. #PBS

"CNN and MSNBC talked about it in panel discussions over the next few days. The Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, NPR and PBS never reported it. The New York Times wrote about it four days later and played the story on page 14 of its print edition."

@Sheril It is a problem. That's why in addition to subscribing to my local newspaper I make a yearly donation to my local public broadcasting network, OPB (Oregon Public Broadcasting). Their website has no paywall.
Some other news sites without paywalls are NPR, PBS NewsHour and AP News.

"If we miss something as big as Elizabeth, who is crucial in two world wars...who fights the #mob, if we missed her, who else are we missing?"
that's why fascist Republicans have destroyed publicly funded A&C grant making. they have always treated PBS & NPR as what they are: para-governmental media outlets.
just because Voice Of America exists, doesn't mean USGov doesn't have state media.
fascists want it privatized. like FoxNews.
so when the sundry UK government ministries, agencies and departments decide to set up their own instances... are y'all gonna #fediblock them by default?
#BBC is a para-governmental organization. they are going to be horrible one way or another; but they are the main communications platform for the UK.
