    PBS to Honor Sarah Silverman, Lena Dunham as 'Women Who Make America' :facepalm:


    The media's infatuation with Girls star/creator Lena Dunham will continue in 2014.

    PBS announced this week plans for new installments of its Makers: The Women Who Make America series.
    The six, one-hour documentaries will focus on business, politics and entertainment. The latter will feature interviews with Girls star Lena Dunham and comedian Sarah Silverman, among others.
    Audiences hear from actress-producer-activist Jane Fonda, who at 75 is playing a sharp, sexy and powerful media mogul on the award-winning series The Newsroom; television powerhouse Shonda Rhimes, who created Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal; screenwriter Linda Woolverton, who re-imagined the traditional Disney princess by making Belle (Beauty and the Beast) a self-possessed, strong-willed young woman; writer-director-actress Lena Dunham, who mines comedy and drama gold by exploring what it’s really like to be a young woman today ... Produced by Rory Kennedy with Producer/Director Linda Goldstein Knowlton. The documentary is scheduled to air September 2, 2014.
    HBO's Girls is not a ratings magnet, yet Dunham is considered by many in the media to be a new, important voice for her generation. Vogue magazine just dubbed her the new queen of comedy.
    Silverman is best known these days for her strong abortion support, including appearances on behalf of abortion fundraisers.

    Magazines giving people a title is PR. Lady GaGa had her album out so a magazine gave her a title. Miley had her album coming out so Maxim called her "The hottest woman of 2013." Celebrities buy these dumb titles. In a year or two Lena's show will go away and she'll be making indie movies that no one will watch.

    PBS is taxpayer funded. These people are low information voters.

    Pbs is really hit or miss. Nova, Nature, Sherlock, and a few other things are great. Some of their shows are some crazy, left field stuff.

    It is so pathetic when PBS is put on the spot and they speak out of both sides of their mouth on their funding. When Juan Williams was fired for not being a loyal lefty, again there were demands for their funding to get cut. All the supporters hit the airways, I watched a LeVar Burton interview where he sat there with tears in his eyes lamenting all the children that will lose their ONLY source of educational programming. He said that because the poor can't afford cable or satellite, the host countered that there are virtually no homes in the U.S. that don't have cable or satellite and this isn't the 1970's or 80's anymore.

    Soon after PBS countered and began to say that there is very little taxpayer money that supports them so don't even bother removing their funding. So Congressman said good, so you don't need the funding, so we'll cut it! Then they sent out the supporters again saying if they cut the money the children will suffer again. :tzone:


    By that point, the story died off and everyone walked away and hid AGAIN. :facepalm:

    If they really wanted to honor them the right thing to do would be to make a party, not a documentary.

    Wonder if she would have supported the abortion of Lena Dunham?
