Huffington Post survey taking temp of viewers on PBS breaks question

Current's coverage of PBS's announcement that it will begin an experiment this fall to insert local and national promo breaks into two shows has prompted a pro/con survey at Huffington Post. As of 2:10 p.m. Monday (May 23), "I hate it" has 72 percent of the votes, with "Whatever" claiming 28 percent.

I guess someone in PBS' General; Counsel office forgot about the Federal law that PBS programs under 60 minutes cannot be interupted for "non-program" material.

Of course, PBS has long forgotten about the Federal law requiring programs to present balance.
