Eduardo Quezada comenta sobre la controversial serie de PBS que relata las batallas de la segunda Guerra Mundial pero que no incluye la perspectiva de los soldados Hispanos. Presentadora de Noticias: Nancy Agosto. Se estima que cerca de medio millon de latinos participaron en las fuerzas armadas durante ese conflicto, pero en 14 horas de programacion no estan incluidos. PBS and Ken Burns ignored the role played by Hispanic Americans in the World War II documentary The War , yes in the war they were all Americans, but if they were "all americans" why were many latinos, discriminated against when they returned home. They had to face segregation and exclusion when it came to using bathrooms, some were denied entry to restaurants. I have been told ugly stories about how they excluded mexican children from using public pools.

******* NEW YORK -- YouTube and PBS have put in place a joint program to solicit, organize, stream and broadcast user-generated video from polling places around the nation on election day, November 4. The program is called "Video Your Vote." According to Steve Grove, head of news and politics at YouTube, the effort is aimed to "increase the transparency" of the voting process, including potential problems. Voters will be encouraged to bring video cameras or video-enabled camera phones to the polling place. The voter-generated videos will be populated on YouTube and on PBS as part of its election night coverage. Kelsey interviewed Steve yesterday at the Time CNN Politics Summit. Mashable reported on the program yesterday. Update: YouTube just issued this press release on the initiative. -- Andy Plesser, Executive Producer

*******www.pbs****/independentlens/marchpoint/ In the late 1950s, two oil refineries were built on March Point, an area that was once part of the Swinomish Reservation by treaty. MARCH POINT tells the story of three boys from the Swinomish Indian Tribe who make a movie about the destruction the refineries have wrought in their community. In this clip, Swinomish tribe leader Brian Cladoosby worries that a nearby oil refinery is polluting tribal lands and impacting the community's health. MARCH POINT premieres Tuesday, November 18 on INDEPENDENT LENS, a weekly series airing on PBS. Hosted by Terrence Howard, the acclaimed series showcases powerful and innovative independent films. Presented by ITVS, INDEPENDENT LENS is broadcast on PBS stations nationwide. Visit the Web site for more: *******www.pbs****/independentlens/marchpoint/

*******www.pbs****/frontline/katrina One year after Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans' bankrupt utility had yet to bring power back to areas of the lower Ninth Ward—including the home of Herbert Gettridge. In "The Old Man and the Storm," FRONTLINE follows Mr. Gettridge and his family as they struggle to rebuild their homes and their lives. Watch on air and online beginning Tues, Jan 6, 2009. Six months after Hurricane Katrina slammed into New Orleans, producer June Cross came across 82-year-old Herbert Gettridge working alone on his home in the lower Ninth Ward, a neighborhood devastated when the levees broke in August 2005. Over the next two years, Cross would document the story of the extended Gettridge clan--an African-American family with deep roots in New Orleans--as they struggled to rebuild their homes and their lives. Their efforts would be deeply impacted by larger decisions about urban planning, public health, and the insurance industry, by the decisions of policymakers about federal funding for rebuilding the Gulf, and state and city plans for dispersing those monies. The moving personal story of Mr. Gettridge and his family reveals the human cost of this tragedy, the continued inadequacies of government's response in the aftermath of Katrina, and how race, class, and politics have affected the attempts to rebuild this American city.
