Cap Times reporter Doug Moe responds to criticism by State Senator Jeff Plale of community television in general, and Cooking With Bob in particular, in his February 5 editorial. Moe writes, "We have a channel in Madison of a guy grilling a chicken; sometimes he grills lambchops," says Plale. "Should the ratepayers really pay for that?" Moe's response: "The answer to that question is an unequivocal yes."
Senator Plale, it turns out, is merely doing the bidding of the American Legislative Exchange Council, an organization devoted to privatization and corporatization of publicly held interests. Read Doug Moe's article here. Thanks Doug!
