Dear Thirteen/WNET Program Director,

I am most delighted to know that I can still get unbiased world news after the cancellation of your subscription to the BBC News program. In the United States, it has become more and more difficult to get excellent, accurate, and fair reporting of world affairs.

Your collage of reports from around the world certainly meets my criteria of good and fair, informative reporting of world issues. Often, the commercial media and politicians are pressured to present political issues from some parts of the world in such a way that only the point of views of certain special groups are reflected, leaving no room for dialectical discourse about the proper course of response by our government. Economic pressure by these groups is a form of censor, and consequently, the importance of delivering a presentation of world issues with veracity becomes irrelevant.
