PBS ombud gets complaints about 'NOVA' after New Yorker runs Koch story

PBS.org | New Yorker
A PBS viewer tells ombud Michael Getler: "I watched NOVA last night, 'Becoming Human,' and I was shocked and dismayed that PBS would air a show that is funded by David Koch and clearly supports his perspective: climate change is good for humans." Is 'NOVA' influenced by Koch's money? "As a viewer of what strikes me and a lot of others as a consistently first-rate program, I trust 'NOVA,'" writes Getler.
