PBS NewsHour

Show Summary

PBS NewsHour is the long running news magazine broadcast every weeknight on PBS. The show was created by veteran newsmen Robert MacNeil and Jim Lehrer, and has been on the air since 1975. In 2009, the show previously known as The NewsHour With Jim Lehrer became The PBS NewsHour. This updated version also featured co-anchors, something that hadn't been implemented since the mid 90's when MacNeil co-anchored. Current correspondents and contributors for PBS NewsHour include Jeffrey Brown, Gwen Ifill, Hari Sreenivasan, Ray Suarez, Margaret Warner, and Judy Woodruff. One of the major differences between network news and the PBS NewsHour is that because the show is publicly funded, there are no commercials. This allows the NewsHour to dedicate more time to comprehensive reporting. Since its premiere, the show has been the recipient of countless awards. In 2009, it won the National Association of Media Literacy Education, Media Literate Award; in 2008 PBS NewsHour was awarded the News and Documentary Emmy Award for Outstanding Coverage of a Breaking News Story in a News Magazine.moreless

  • Simple and to the point.

    Just like this review.
  • News AND Information

    If you are interested in current events, and are looking for a source free of the traps of false dichotomy, absolutism, party and ideology, then the NewsHour is the best in the country.
  • Really Fair & Balanced

    This may not be slick and glitzy, yet if you want to know what is going on in the world each day and want to have some insight into reasons and causes of the given story watch this program. Also if you want human stories that treat subject with dignity and depth you will get stories like this. I appreciate this show and would be such a void if it was not on, nothing comes close on network or cable tv.moreless
  • The Anchors Need to Think Before They Speak

    The anchors, especially Judy Woodruff and Ray Suarez, need to think before they speak. They seem to have a strange reactionary tic where they say "more", almost spastically when the word is over-used and inappropriate. I thought people in the media were supposed to be educated in forming sentences with correct structure and meaning. These people act strangely for persons who are supposed to know better. Every single syllable that they say and write should be crafted to convey the news that they are bringing to the public. Carelessness is replacing the craft of writing. Now that's sad! Shame on them. They know better than that.moreless
