Alternet has the story The P.U.-Litzers: Here Are the Stinkiest Media Moments of 2013. I wonder if this prize will rise to the level of the Ig® Nobel Prize.
I’ll give you one sample of The P.U.-Litzers.
–The Sponsors Speak Award: PBS
The January 23 episode of PBS series Nova was a mostly upbeat report on drones and surveillance. What viewers may not have known about “Rise of the Drones” was that it was funded in part by Lockheed Martin–the giant aerospace corporation that just happens to be a major drone manufacturer.
As a recent purchaser of Lockheed Martin stock, I found this particularly interesting. Also as a reformed watcher of NOVA, this selection is interesting. And to think that NOVA’s funding by the Koch brothers could ever have any influence on their editorial content; how absurd.
