July 19th, 2016 1:34 PM
PBS covered the Republican convention for three hours of prime time on Monday night, in association with its pubcasting buddies at NPR.

PBS Glides Over Enquirer Smear of Cruz, Pushes Dark Future for the GOP
March 29th, 2016 5:34 PM
One could offer credit to the PBS NewsHour for mostly avoiding the unsubstantiated National Enquirer story claiming Ted Cruz had five secret mistresses.
