Ira Glass: ‘Public Television is Terrible’

Public Radio all star Ira Glass is bringing “This American Life” to the boob tube. Showtime approached him, he accepted, and he told the TV critics why he’d never be on PBS (save for Frontline):

“Public television is terrible. This isn’t the greatest thing for me to say, but it’s the truth. In terms of innovation and what they do, you know, it’s just not that interesting most of the time…. In fact, the stations are more beholden to corporate interest than commercial TV.”

Thanks, Karen!
