NOVA may not have been critical enough, but the PBS show NOW has asked the hard questions:
- October 21, 2005 NOW Updates on Katrina and the environment
- September 30, 2005 NOW goes inside the management mess at FEMA.
- September 16, 2005 NOW What's next for New Orleans? A 1-hour town hall meeting.
It goes on, and on, and on. NOW continues to deal with this issue regularly. Notably, NOW is the rare PBS show that is not (currently) funded by any corporations. Since Bill Moyers left, and NOW moved to a 30 minute format, it's been funded by a mix of foundations and the PBS network itself. And it's been doing a great job at speaking truth to power. It's the kind of stuff the commercial networks' newsmagazines used to do before they all got sucked into multinational corporate conglomerates.
