PBS continues with oil sponsors
- 6/18: From PBS ombudsman Michael Getler on their oil company sponsors, "officials who deal with underwriting policy reported:
"Recently, (PBS) series underwriters Chevron and ExxonMobil have chosen to mark their support with an on-screen display of their name rather than the more typical underwriting credit. The companies continue to underwrite PBS NewsHour (Chevron), NOVA (ExxonMobil), Nightly Business Report (ExxonMobil), and other programs. Their support of these programs is clearly acknowledged on the air at the time of the broadcast, in accordance with our guidelines regarding public disclosure of program funders."
