Comment on Riehl World View,
"A Gatesgate At Henry Gates' "Bogus" Charity?"


The abuse of PBS as a shill for projects used to raise many for favored members of the Nomenklatura sounds like a good story.

Gates produces, and is I would think compensated for, two shows. These are promoted by PBS and local affiliates. Other PBS shows, think Charlie Rose, run segments that add to the visibility and prestige of the project. Everyone connected with these programs is paid using charitable or taxpayer dollars. The publicity generated is used as a form of unpaid advertising to support Mr Gates' for profit business.

Jobs for the boys. It's the Chicago Way.
