PBS apologizes for Fourth of July broadcast that used previous years’ fireworks footage
Viewers who tuned into PBS’ “A Capitol Fourth” broadcast Monday night were treated to an American tradition: bursts of pyrotechnic color unfolding over the nation’s capital on the night of the Fourth of July.
But some eagle-eyed viewers in the District of Columbia noticed something odd about the broadcast. The fireworks on the screen, bursting against a clear sky, didn’t match those in the cloudy, overcast weather outside. And some of the shots showed the Capitol dome, which is under renovation, without its current scaffolding.
The show, in its 36th year, boasts it broadcasts Washington’s own fireworks display for millions of viewers across the country from the U.S. Capitol’s West Lawn, where thousands more gather to see the display in person. But because of this year’s cloudy weather, the network confirmed after the broadcast that the “live” show was not live at all.
Instead, it was “a combination of the best fireworks from this year and previous years... It was the patriotic thing to do,” the show’s Twitter said.
But it wasn’t enough for some viewers, who questioned why PBS hadn’t told viewers about the augmented showing ahead of time.
A few hours later, the show added an apology on Twitter “for any confusion this may have caused”:
fucking PBS always looking to fuck people over money grubbing bastards
Lol. Liberal economics in action.
Trickle up, idiots.
Wonder how many Brit Floyd tickets they sold.
Why do we even need PBS/NPR now? Another waste of taxpayer money.
PBS raises money by selling Brit Floyd tickets/meet and greets as they tour the country:

You are aware there's an invention called television, and on this invention they show shows?
they are a cover band
Good for PBS We already have way too much of that smelly noisey poluting crap in our atmosphere.
Meh. CBS has been dubbing bird chirps and birdsong into its golf coverage for years, it really makes the Masters "come alive'. They were exposed and keep doing it. It's TV. Everything on it is a fraud. Except, maybe, wrestling.
Would smash. Loodles Dweezner.
Which side of the ledger does the, "national media doesn't think twice about fabricating news and current events" word balloon fit on your 3"x5" card?
