KMBH in Texas declines to run Frontline Katrina report
The Brownsville Herald is reporting that Harlingen, Texas, PBS affiliate KMBH did not run Frontline's "Law & Disorder" last week (Aug. 25), which focused on questionable police shootings in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. The paper cited "offensive language" as the problem. Diane Buxton, Frontline spokesperson, told Current the show provided an early feed to accommodate stations that wished to make the two minor language edits. John Ross, KMBH interim general manager, did not return a call from Current.
