How can PBS cure its eternal ills of political interference, commercial media pressure, and a fatally flawed funding system to become a world class model of modern pubcasting? Well, if you ask public policy expert Lauren J. Strayer it’s easier than you might think. All you need is the right plan and a little of that hope and change so in vogue in Washington these days. Ms. Strayer has a plan, masterfully researched and spelled out in the book Change for America: A Progressive Blueprint for the 44th President (published jointly by John Podesta’s Center for American Progress and Mark Green’s New Democracy Project). So, we’ve got a plan to fix PBS…now all we need is the hope and change you’ve talked so much about, Mr. President.
