PBS "The Armenian Genocide" Anti-Censorship sign now

Media controversy has recently surfaced as a result of a documentary entitled The American Genocide that was scheduled to air on the PBS network stations on April 17, 2006 that was to be followed by a panel discussion on the issue. Representatives from the network along with members of the discussion have all expressed the importance of both the documentary and the discussion following it, stating they are equally critical to fully explore the question of why the Turkish government and its supporters continue to reject the genocidal label. The documentary that was in fact funded by American-Armenians never once denies that the atrocities occurred and instead functions to seek answers and put pressure on the Turkish government to acknowledge the significance of the term genocide and its application.
The role of our government representatives is key since two congressmen have already stepped forward to condemn the film and panel discussion. Furthermore, considering that PBS is a publicly funded entity that exists because of our tax dollars, the rights and freedoms of all U.S. citizens should be observed and voiced instead of just the minimal majority faction. This issue gravely threatens the groundwork of our nation and its basic principles of liberty and freedom by promoting such illicit censorship. Thus, the need to publicly address these concerns should be at the forefront of current agenda items bearing in mind the short time frame that remains and the horrendous precedent such censorship may establish. The potential impacts of this issue are numerous and disastrous to our nation and cannot be ignored.
