Program: This Old House (1 comment)
I love to watch This Old House, Ask This Old House and Hometime. You had these on beginning at noon on Sunday's. This does not work in my schedule the best, but is more available than 2:00 pm on Mondays and 1:00 am on Tuesday morning. You continually seem to show what I call "the contributor shows" and I refuse to watch these. I am done with CPT12. I will watch This Old House from their website and forget about CPT12. Good bye.
CPT12 Response:
Thank you for your email. I am sorry we are losing your support.
“The Contributor Shows” help us raise funds to be able to purchase the broadcast rights for the shows you  enjoy.
This allows CPT12  to make these programs available to our viewers  who do not have access to the internet or prefer to avoid the myriad of ads on the website.

KBDI WV captions
Posted: April 12, 2014 by Name Withheld
I've noticed the captions on the worldview channel are very interesting. The captions don't match the newscasters, and it almost looks like the captions have been taken over by a caption hacker. I don't mind, I mainly look at the video, and because I'm mostly deaf, I don't hear much anyway. That's why I use captions, but on KBDI WV, they are not accurate. They are very political and if I might add, insightful.

hi i am seeing through some friends that season 3 of front and center features the avett bothers but i see no mention of them as you seem to be airing season 2 right now any info on season 3 episode with the avett brothers thank you for a reply denise
CPT12 Response:
Season 3 of Front and Center began feeding from satellite once a week beginning  4/3/14 .  Sometimes we may wait until we have most of the series in-house before air a series for continuity’s sake.  Since the series isn’t in the current or 30 days out schedule (we typically do our schedules at least 30 days out) Season 3 will likely air in June.  You may want to check our website’s schedule tab about mid-May – www.cpt12.org.

Tavis smiley direct contact and CPT 12 direct contact
Posted: April 8, 2014 by john roehling
Hi contacts, Hello, how do you do this? I checked the Tavis Smiley website for one part of the contacts and was disgustingly surprised at how self-promotional and opaque it was. No real contact links anywhere, let alone a phone number. At least CPT12 has something that takes an email. Nothing obvious or even hidden at Tavis Smiley. Got a phone number for them? I'll inquire about the contact link myself. You don't want to hear it, but I started this at about 6:15 Tuesday night. I think you catch the drift. Thanks, John

timing of warning .
Posted: April 7, 2014 by Bobby Ann Powell
I watch pbs 12 every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for painting instruction. At about 4 minutes in the nation weather warning system goes off and I cannot hear the painters instructions. Why you do this so often when it not required I do not understand, but since you do could you move the time to the end of Sesame Street please. Please, Please, Please. The info missed can be important for learning info. Thank you Bobby Powell
CPT12 Response:
Due to the size of our staff and the fact that we are not manned 24 hours a day, the EAS signal is automatic.  In other words, the signal goes to air at the time it comes in.  Perhaps in the future we can deal with it in a more viewer-friendly way.

Song stuck in my head
Posted: April 6, 2014 by Name Withheld
On april 3rd a song came on at the end of ireland today. All I remember is a fierce recorder. Well at the end of this 3 minute song the word Ireland came up in green. Can someone there tell me the name of that song, or can I make a request that you play that song more often? MHz worldview also has a song for moroco that I like, but this email is about an irish song. Please help if you can.
CPT12 Response:
I am unable to find the program you request: “Ireland Today”.  However, I assume that it was RTÉ Six One News you saw at 4 pm on April 3rd.  I tried to discover what the music was, but couldn’t find it searching the website.  My suggestion is to go to the web link below and request the information.

Brighton Drilling moratorium
Posted: April 4, 2014 by Dick Hodge
Program: Colorado Inside Out (10 comments)
A fine point I guess, but Brighton did not impose a fracking ban. I know it's fun to say frack on TV, but surely all you usually bright folk know better. Maybe not so smart a move, but not a fracking ban.
CPT12 Response:
Thank you very much for your note.  We always appreciate hearing from our viewers, especially when we are in error.
 
You are absolutely right that we should not have characterized what Brighton did last week as lifting a fracking ban.  It was indeed a drilling moratorium, and not a fracking ban, that was lifted.
 
The error was my fault as I was the one who wrote the topic and didn’t dig down enough into the story, ironically, to see exactly what happened.
 
I appreciate the fact that you let us know when we were wrong and it will help us double down our efforts to present the facts when we discuss these issues on Colorado Inside Out.
 
Thank you for watching and supporting Colorado Public Television.

Posted: April 3, 2014 by benita Moyes
My dear reader, you have to read this. Dr Malaika doesn’t ask for testimonies and he doesn’t charge. He is genuine and people get to meet him by luck. But right now am your luck if you could meet him. Every other testimonies you read here are scams...... Dr Malaika lives in Nigeria and I happened to meet him by chance after a friend told me about him. I followed these internet testimonies and was hugely scammed to the extent that I wanted to kill myself. Dr Malaika turned my situation around by bringing back my ex and made me regain double of what I lost over to these scams. He made my ex come crawling to have him back. All I spent was $250 and at last gained back all my lost money and even double of it. His email address is odogwumalaika@gmail.com but please don’t make him know that I published him on net. He is just wonderful and I wish whoever that finds him good luck. Don’t forget his email address is odogwumalaika@gmail.com Yours truly Benita Moyes
News ? First Ukraine - NOT !
Posted: April 3, 2014 by David Cerullo
Hello, I hope all is well at Channel 12. Hey I watch you more than anyone - MHZ news from all over the world in particular. Miss Al Jazeera ;-( I am not an expert, but ... I have spent a year in Ukraine in 9 trips since 2006. Been to Crime 4 times - Yalta; Sevastopol twice. Crimea is much more Russian than the rest of Ukraine. They have had military there for hundreds of years and, just like around US bases, a lot of retired military. All ethnic Russians. In the end, it is better for THE PEOPLE of Crimea to be in Russia - especially with the US and NATO backed neo-fascists having violently overthrown the elected govt in Kyiv. Riots, bank robberies, kidnappings, violence ... not in Crimea !!! I am appalled by the content of the First Ukraine broadcasts. I have seen 3. You cannot call this anything but propaganda. 3 of 6 stories in one show were all about Russian troops preparing to invade Ukraine ... or Moldova ... or Poland. The Russians are coming !!! OMG !!! The Russian soldiers are in Russia - unlike US soldiers that are in dozens of countries around the world - many of which (like Okinawa) have been trying to get rid of the US for years. The Crimeans like the Black Sea Fleet and the Russian military in Crimea. Please DO NOT support the propaganda that the peaceful referendum is illegal but the violent overthrow of the govt in Kyiv is legal. David

CPT12 Response:
 Part 2 of this excellent program is scheduled to air on Tuesday, May 13th at 9:00pm on Channel 12.1.  You may want to check our website beforehand to make sure there haven’t been any schedule changes.  Did you know that you can set up e-mail reminders for programs on our website?  It is a really handy feature but of course the program needs to be on the schedule – usually there is about 1 month of visibility.

ZEAL Optics Presents The Cradle of Storms
Posted: March 31, 2014 by Jamie Normandin
Hello, I wanted to reach out about a potential story idea around an event we’re hosting at the Boulder Theater on April 3. The event is a fundraiser for the 5 Gyres Institute, a group that’s raising consciousness about the five large garbage patches in the world’s oceans and working to clean them up, and the event is the culmination of a group of local businesses’ efforts to band together and raise consciousness of a global issue while at the same time growing our local economy through the power of travel, fun, and sport. Quite a combination, right? To make this happen, we’re bringing out two of our surf athletes, Pete Devries and Josh Mulcoy, some of the best surfers in the world, as well as world renowned surf and travel photographer Chris Burkard, to premiere their new movie, “The Cradle of Storms”, an odyssey documenting a trip to Alaska’s Aleutian Islands, the birthplace of most of our hemisphere’s largest storms. The film will be followed by performances by Denver’s Thee Dang Dangs and MTHDS, and is being supported by the Colorado Coalition, a group of brands including TOPO Designs, working to craft products with a deep story here in Colorado. This cause is particularly meaningful to ZEAL Optics as we make all of our sunglasses from plant-based resins and have eliminated the use of petroleum in our products to decrease the amount of plastic going into our landfills, waterways and oceans. Let me know if there’s any interest in doing a story on this movement, the event, or interviews with the athletes while they’re here. Here’s more on the event, the flyer is attached, and their a short trailer here: http://www.bouldertheater.com/event/zeal-optics-surfer-magazine-movie-premiere Jamie Normandin | Marketing & Event Coordinator 775.762.0304 | jnormandin@zealoptics.com ZEAL Optics — Explore More www.zealoptics.com facebook.com/zealoptics
Bibi Netanyahoo
Posted: March 30, 2014 by Name Withheld
Program: Israel: The Royal Tour (1 comment)
Channel 12, What was the programming rationale for airing that dreadful puff-piece for Israel featuring that unindicted war criminal, Netanyahoo? Was it inflicted on Channel 12 by AIPAC or some other Israel booster group? Or did your programming management actually think viewers would believe the horse manure that Bibi & Friends were spreading about the venomous, terrorist, expansionist, nuclear/chemical/biological weapons-ridden state of Jewland? Don't like the term Jewland? My god! Is not that nation officially called the Jewish State? Since when did Americans officially support theocratic nations? Five minutes of this execrable "show" was as much as I could suffer through. The Royal Tour (Royal? Is it now Emperor Bibi?) was neither travelogue, documentary, biography, nor a fair-minded assessment of that miserable apartheid country. Nor was it a work of fair-minded and impartial investigative journalism. As I pointed out earlier, it was a propagandistic puff-piece for faithful Israel firsters and the indigenous and long-suffering Palestinians be damned. Rick Steves and other traveloguers provide snapshot histories that at least pay lip service to national or regional histories and their troublesome pasts, but...The Royal Tour? Now, if you want to provide another perspective on Israel, I suggest you air two documentaries produced by the BBC. You have heard about the BBC, I trust? The first deals with Israel's deliberate and unprovoked attack on the USS Liberty, June 8, 1967. Thirty-four U.S. military and intelligence personnel were murdered by the Jewish State's armed forces. I believe the documentary was first aired in 2003. The History Channel also produced a documentary on the Liberty which was aired repeatedly for a number of weeks. BBC also produced a documentary about Israel's secret weapons hoard (2003). I certainly would like to view it----how about airing it together with a live post-show, interactive discussion? Your channel is becoming more advertisement riddled by the week. When are we going to get genuine publicly owned TV back? Other than specific programs on Channel 12.3 and occasionally Democracy Now!, I find no compelling reason to view anything on Channel 12 any longer. The same goes for Channel Six, if it makes you feel any better.

Thank you for airing this documentary. It was very eye-opening and I learned a lot. It was nice to see something other than Hollywood leftist extreme environmentalist propaganda, such as Gasland. Fracking is a complex issue. There are positives and negatives. Please don't let these close minded people dictate the narrative on what you should and shouldn't show on your station. Many of us do appreciate it but we dont' appreciate bullies who want to dictate what the truth is. Thanks again.

Do you have plans to broadcast an HD signal?
CPT12 Response:
Thanks for your email. We recently completed an upgrade to our video storage and playout systems at a cost of $220,000.  This is the first step towards offering an HD broadcast. We are currently looking for funds for the next stage, which will cost an additional $120,000. We have several grant applications out that will provide some of this money and hope to hear back with a positive decision soon. We would like to offer an HD channel later this year, but are dependent on finding the funds. We’ll have updates on our website.

I would like my granddaughters to see the program your station aired on 3-20 at 7 pm Our T.V. program said "Globe Trekker" but instead it was an excellent program on women with inspirational careers, interviews and quotes. Please let me know if it is based on a book, or will be shown again in the near future. Thank you, Carol Peterson

It sounds like you were tuned into Channel 12.2 (Comcast 251) which aired “Get Real! Wise Women Speak” and not Channel 12.1 which aired “Globe Trekker”.

Story Idea: Local Family in a Race Against Time and the FDA to Save Son
Posted: March 19, 2014 by Chris Dunne
ENGLEWOOD, CO--Ryan Dunne is 9-years-old, a third grader who has Duchenne muscular dystrophy which is a terminal disease. DMD has no known treatment. Kids with this genetic defect start to get weaker in elementary school and are often confined to an electric wheelchair by middle school. Few survive into their 20s because their bodies become progressively weaker until they lose the function of their lungs and heart. Ryan was fortunate because he was part of a group of boys that were in a study to test the effectiveness and safety of two new medicines awaiting FDA approval. During the six months he took these drugs, Ryan had marked improvements in his strength, stamina, and overall health. Those trials ended in September and since then, Ryan--along with other boys in the trial--are rapidly deteriorating. Despite the drug's lead investigator, Jerry Mendell, saying that it works, The FDA has yet to place these live-saving medications on track for accelerated approval, saying, "We recognize the huge unmet medical need in Duchene muscular dystrophy, the devastating nature of the disease for patients and their families, and the great urgency to make new treatments available." In hopes of accelerating the approval process, the Dunne family has started a petition on WhiteHouse.gov. They need 100,000 signatures by March 29, 2014 to have this issue addressed. Background Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-y5coYJaeuY ###

I write to urge you to remove Russia Today from your lineup of international news programming. While I enjoy watching news programs from all over the world, it has become completely clear in the last few weeks that Russia Today is purely a propaganda outlet for Vladimir Putin, and as such has no legitimate place in your programming. I do not wish my public TV dollars to be spent on propaganda. Please consider the integrity of you station, your reputation, and your viewers' best interests, and remove Russia Today from your schedule. Thank You, Lisa West

Colorado Public Television’s Channel 12.3 is a pass-through of the MHz Worldview Channel. Colorado Public Television does not have control of what they air. We take their programming “as is” off the internet. Any comments or feedback regarding programming on 12.3 should be sent directly to MHz Worldview  through the link below:
http://mhz.convio.net/site/Survey?SURVEY_ID=1141&ACTION_REQUIRED=URI_ACTION_USER_REQUESTS
With that said, many of our viewers find it enlightening to watch RT News; especially with what is going on in Ukraine. We  get to see how events are interpreted and managed for mass consumption by Putin and the Kremlin.   Our viewers, like you, know what it is.  That is part of the fascination.
But how about that dramatic on air resignationof Liz Wahl over Ukraine coverage on RT News? That was pretty cool. Apparently not everything at RT News can be controlled by the state.
Thanks for your feedback. We do appreciate, respect and take note of your concerns over the program.

Program: NOVA (3 comments)
Please pass on to your diectors and producers that 70-year old eyes do not appreciate their attemps to make a video more dramatic by introducing bright flashes between scenes (as in your preview of the catacombs program)and other methods of 'transitioning' from one scene to the next that are so difficult for older eyes to adjust to and follow. Although an older viewer, I am intensely interested in history and find this type of program very interesting to watch. But they are interesting to watch because of the subject matter, not because of the videomakers' attempts to introduce drama through these special effects.

My 8 year old daughter wanted to watch Cat in the Hat this morning as she ate breakfast and got ready for school. The show was not on although the program menu said it was and there was some type of Cirque Du Soleil type of show on. I thought it was a commercial so I left it on briefly until she said the music was scary. The program continued and Cat in the Hat did not come on. The music was scary, and I thought it was inappropriate for young children, so I had to turn the channel. Please keep to the kids programs, especially when kids are likely to be watching before and after school. Thank you, Wynn Chavez

Standardized Testing follow-up
Posted: March 9, 2014 by Peter Bergson
Program: Studio 12 (5 comments)
Your recent program with Steffan Tubbs as host was a great start in opening up a huge topic. I was especially interested to hear more of what Angela Engle had to say about the negative impact that standardized testing is having on students, teachers and schools themselves with regard to stress, wasted time, financial impact and irrelevance of results. Please bring her back, perhaps along with someone like Dr. Peter Gray ("Free to Learn", Perseus Books, 2013), to explore other ways in which schooling has run amuck. To repeat: Tubbs is a facile host who, given the time constraints, does a terrific job of giving all perspectives a fair voice, and he doesn't make the discussion about him! Thank you. Peter Bergson

I caught segments of a WorldVision product aired on Channel 12.3, Friday 3/7/2014 at 7:00 pm MST. I believe it was a Danish production, but I can't be certain. Circumstances prevented me from seeing both the beginning and end of the airing....can you provide me with enough particulars so that I can further identify / purchase the item? I know enough to search IMDB or WorldVision, but a few particulars would save me much time in the process. I was not easily able to search Channel 12.3 for the time slot. As a matter of fact, I could not even activate the link to 12.3. Cheers, Dave Morton ---- International Mysteries is by far the best show aired by Channel 12, Democracy Now! notwithstanding. It deserves much more publicity than it currently is given. Why not mention it during standard 12.1 promos? Dave Morton -- Longmont

Just wondering why you replaced peg+ cat on your afternoon schedule with bali? My older children love peg+ cat and were very disappointed to see it replaced with a much more juvenile show.

We’re glad your children love Peg + Cat.  This  program was changed to Bali on our channel 12.2 (Comcast 251) to switch things up a bit (there are only 15 episodes of Peg + Cat currently) but were you aware that you can still see Peg + Cat on our Channel 12 (12.1)?

standardized testing
Posted: March 4, 2014 by Name Withheld
Program: Studio 12 (5 comments)
Thank you for your show on Standardized Testing: Does It Work? I would love to see a follow up show on the data mining. As a parent, more than the testing concern, I have concerns of the new testing being used for data mining. This point did not get addressed - and could take up a whole show on its own. How can schools go against privacy acts and upload student information to a national data base for others to view? How can parents prevent their child's information being included when the district is involved in this practice. I have been told we could opt out on TCAP but absolutely not for CMAS or PARCC. This is their gateway to the data mining system. Future shows could also address pitting teachers and schools against students if the student is not performing. The state of Colorado is a school of choice state, but many districts, charters and schools openly will not take a student if they have an IEP or 504. How is this FAPE Free and Appropriate Education? Are we moving to a segregated society when publicly funded schools can pick and choose who they will accept for admittance? Soon will we see students not being admitted because they under performed on standardized tests? Will schools suggest that the school is not a good fit and try to flush out the students? Unfortunately, one would like to think that would not happen, but think about this; several students are keeping a teacher or administrator possibly close to retirement from a pay raise or even jeopardizing their livelihood, will they take the high road or take it out on the student?
CPT12 Response:
 Thank you for your email.
I will forward your comments and questions to the producer of Studio 12. The intersection of high stakes testing, data mining of students, and school choice would make a fascinating topic to explore in future episodes.

CCTV, an official propaganda arm of the Chinese government and the Chinese Communist Party, is being distributed to public television stations in the U.S. through a public television programming service called MHz Worldview, a project of MHz Networks. Florida broadcaster Jerry Kenney has taken a look at this aspect of the bias. His analysis shows that the federally-funded Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) funneled $27,580,113 into MHz Networks and its affiliates in fiscal year 2011. MHz Networks is a division of Commonwealth Public Broadcasting, based in Richmond, Virginia, and distributes Al-Jazeera, the voice of the Muslim Brotherhood, the Moscow-funded Russia Today (RT) channel, and CCTV, under the rubric of “Programming for globally-minded people.” MHz Worldview calls itself “alternative programming for U.S. public TV stations and other distributors.”
Split Estate - Really?

Program: Split Estate (1 comment)
Your series is riddle with half truths and misleading commentary, including that by the fundraisers (using a 12 year old........really?) I noticed the careful wording by your film makers accomplices by saying that the water taken from a fracked well was full of toxins and cancer causing chemicals, then comparing them from Oil and Gas experts who said that the chemicals were nothing more that detergents used to dissolve clay soils (which is true) and that you could drink the solution. The continuous play on this is ridiculous and your fund raising deserves better and more truthful topics to raise funds for your publicly sponsored and taxpayer supported station. Please stop advancing this administrations agenda and use more creditable sources. No professor from School of Mines or equally trained petroleum engineer was not included in your fundraising panel but just the same old wore out hippies that continually man your phones advancing their tiresome agendas.

False Equivalency
Posted: February 23, 2014 by Pam Pearce
Program: FrackNation (31 comments)
Okay, it's great to know what people think, but that doesn't make their opinions true. If I wanted to see people on TV express their opinions, I'd go to Fox, CNN, MSNBC. I can see pro-fracking opinions (and lies) on any network supported by big oil (PBS) or owned by a multinational (Fox, CNN, MSNBC). They make everything out to be equal: one side is the same as another. NO, no no! I want scientific evidence backing up claims. Of course, a lot of people support fracking because it's their bread and butter, and I understand that in this desperate economy. However, no matter what opinions people hold, I don't want America's children drinking water with fracking chemicals in them, and I don't want man-made earthquakes caused by fracking. I believe that, perhaps, fracking has been experienced differently in different parts of the country, which may be a factor in people who take either side. But, what's the scientific truth? And what are the sources on both sides because we know that people and even scientists can be bought off. I'm disappointed in you, KBDI, because your assertion of equivalency between the two sides is FALSE. I've grown up with the expectation that out of all the PBS stations, Channel 12 would offer me alternative views approximating the truth, but you've turned to the mediocrity of the big networks, which are no longer respected because of their obfuscations and equivocating. I hope you get the big money you're trying to get from this presentation, but you certainly won't get my "small" money or support. I might as well send a check to CNN.
CPT12 Response:
Thank you for your email and feedback.
 
I want you to know, Colorado Public Television did also air the film Split Estate (a less favorable film on the consequences of fracking).
 
Fracking is a very controversial and complicated issue in our region. CPT12 hoped to present our viewers with different sides of this issue.
 
Your feedback will help us with programming decisions in the future.

This is an excellent program. Families with intelligent girls should sit down and watch together - it's so encouraging to see these women who are founders of successful businesses or successful academicians or both - even though they started their careers at a time when few women were employed in chemistry-related careers. Five stars!

Program: FrackNation (31 comments)
I'd like to submit this letter regarding your upcoming showing of Fracknation directly to you, as well as posting it in your comment section. Fracknation is not an "independent" film. It is an Industry hit job created to paint harmed families and frauds. Thank you so much for your time in reviewing these comments: Josh Fox made the film Gas;land to tell the stories of families effected by nearby Horizontal, Hydro-fractured gas drilling (Fracking). It's gripping because it draws you into how families cope with contamination from nearby Fracking and what effects these families face are uniform across the nation. The film Fracknation was made to frame Gasland as a lie and the harmed families as frauds. And it has done that quite well. First the Industry made it's own film debunking Gasland - called Truthland. It was 100% Industry funded and backed and also painted Gasland, Josh Fox and victims as frauds. The Irony there was the star of the film, Shelly Depue .. has a leaking water well and likely did when she took the Truthland film on tour: http://www.marcellus-shale.us/Depue-Truthland.htm The Industry myth that the film Truthland and Fracknation are founded on .. that methane has always been in the water, thus Fox and all victims are just pulling some sort of trick, as they obviously know their wells where always contaminated .. has been thoroughly debunked by Professor Anthony Ingraffea. Please review his debunking of the "wells don't leak" and "there was always methane in our water" myths: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_oPqlAAR94U When Phelim Mcaleer went to Dimock, he lied to harmed families to get an interview. He told people he was making a "ban fracking" film in Ireland.. .. and then cut only the film he could use .. in a campaign to paint victims are frauds: "In an interview with DeSmogBlog, Sautner said McAleer approached him under misleading pretenses, claiming to be an anti-fracking filmmaker hoping to help out in Ireland's fracking fight. "I was hesitant at first to do the interview, but he begged us and we said 'okay.' Everything he ended up using in the video he took out of context. He had it all set up from the beginning of what he wanted to show and he wasn't going to show the truth," Sautner told DeSmogBlog. Victoria Switzer, another Dimock victim of Cabot interviewed for "FrackNation" who spent four hours speaking with McAleer in her house (her interview did not appear in the film), also expressed similar sentiments to DeSmogBlog. He called he assured me he was doing an unbiased documentary both sides of the issues. I think it is significant because it goes to his lying, his manipulation of the truth, and misrepresentation of his agenda. I never would have let him in my home if I knew what his agenda was. Later when I saw some of his other work I was sickened that this man sat at the table my husband built in the home that is now threatened by the industry he serves." http://www.desmogblog.com/2013/05/28/fracknation-part-two-koch-industries-ties-bind This is why Mrs. Sautner appears so upset in the film, she has been lied to by the Fracknation crew and knows they will use the footage they took to paint her and her husband as liars. The film uses the scene of confrontation with Mrs Sautner as proof she is unstable, she is simply upset about being lied to .. as any of us would be. I am also researching a documentary and have spoken to victims who corroborate theat familes where lied to by Phelim. I advise Colorado PBS to review the information in Desmog's two part series before you consider misinforming the public in service to an Industry that harms people, then wages a smear campaigns against them. The Kickstarter funding is also suspect: "The film, however, is being partially funded through donations on the Kickstarter website, and the roster of "executive producers" who have donated at least $1 includes scores of energy industry associates. The filmmakers said Thursday they plan to return any donations given by "senior" workers in the industry, which they define as executives." http://www.post-gazette.com/businessnews/2012/03/04/Industry-gets-cast-in-FrackNation-the-latest-documentary-on-the-drilling-debate/stories/201203040252#ixzz2UXz8XwXz While Natural Gas and Fracking may provide a short bridge to our fossil free, sustainable future .. maybe 20 years - not the 100 years Industry is pushing for - Industry must stop their campaign to demonize families who have been harmed and paint them as frauds .. which is the only purpose of this film. It's very hard to prove that Industry's nearby frack job contaminated your water ... even if your water was clear for decades before and the contamination happened when fracking happened. Industry will fight, deny, lie, hide and litigate their way out of addressing contamination - of air, water or soil. America will not tolerate Industry treating people in this manner. While Phelim is in Europe, telling Europe that the US EPA has not found one case of water contamination from fracking in the 60 years we have been drilling here .... families ARE suffering contamination AND demonization. Is this what PBS wants to promote? Thank you for your time, Josh Fox made the film Gas;land to tell the stories of families effected by nearby Horizontal, Hydro-fractured gas drilling (Fracking).

Program: Preparing for Disaster: Starting Now (1 comment)
This one hour documentary has a ton of GREAT information on how to prepare in advance for a disaster. After experiencing the Waldo Canyon Fire in Colorado Springs, and having to gather important things at the last moment, and after experiencing 8 feet of flash flooding right next to our house on Fountain Creek last August, it really sucks not to be prepared in advance. It is a heart attack moment when you have to leave immediately, and you do not know where your documents are, you are not prepared to take your animals, you can't find your photos, toiletries, flash lights, blankets, etc!!! I highly recommend airing this over and over again, as the fire and flood season will be upon us again soon here in Colorado! Thanks!

Program: Train Your Dog Like a Pro (11 comments)
I have a deep love and respect for dogs and their wild cousins (wolves, coyotes, etc.) I have rescued several dogs over the years and volunteered at wolf sanctuaries. Their happiness and well being is of the utmost importance to me. My latest dog, adopted from the Boulder Humane Society, was the most extremely out-of-control dog I've ever encountered. He had every bad habit in the book, from chewing and tugging on leashes, to shredding furniture when left alone, to jumping fences and running off. Training techniques that had worked on my other dogs did not work at all on him. I was getting near wit's end and contemplating the unthinkable (giving up and returning him to the shelter). Watching this show was a huge turning point in our relationship. While it is true that many dogs do not need the kinds of training techniques outlined in this show, some dogs do. Within a few days of watching this show and consistently applying its techniques, my dog went from a hyper-active anxious troublemaker to a calm peaceful companion who I can take to the office, introduce to other dogs, and take running and walking regularly with no distress. I have no doubt that he is far happier now than he was before, and it only took a few days to get here. When I decided to make a donation to cpt12 inspired by this show, I was appalled by the horribly negative comments. The positive change that this show made for me and my dog was tremendous. I wish people would be more open minded and less judgmental. These techniques may not be appropriate for every dog or every situation, but they definitely work wonders in some cases.
CPT12 Response:
Thank you for your email, financial support and feedback on this dog training technique.
I am glad you found the program useful and that you were able to give your dog the forever home he needed.

I just watched a movie called THE INVISIBLE WAR which I discovered at my local public library. I feel it should be broadcast locally. I've requested movies to be played before and you did it. Thank you by the way. This movie is a winner of the SUNDANCE FILM FESTIVAL. The topic cannot be ignored and will not go away without everyone becoming aware of the problem. ISBN 1-4229-2200-6 AS a US NAVY veteran I know how much of a problem the chain-of-command military is a "good ol' boy" platform which promotes the ages old 'boys will be boys' problem. Thank you in advance for your consideration.
CPT12 Response:
Thanks for the programming suggestion.  In my research I found that this was part of the Independent Lens programs and is episode 2013*1416.  We actually have aired this 5 times most recently on Febraury 9th.  So we must be psychic!  Program rights can be very complex so it is hard to say when we can air it again but the best thing is to check our website’s ‘Schedule’ tab and look for Independent Lens.
 
We welcome your programming suggestions so if you see other interesting programs please feel free to drop us a line.
 
All the best,

Myth and narrative
Posted: February 10, 2014 by gary witherspoon
Greetings Colorado Public Television: John Kennedy stated 52 years ago: "Though we are opposed around the world by monolithic and ruthless conspiracy it relies primarily by covert means for expanding a sphere of influence. On infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of election, on intimidation instead of free choice, guerillas by night and cover instead of armies by day. It is a system that has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit highly efficient machine combining military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations. Its preparations are concealed not published, its mistakes are buried not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret revealed. " End quote. This paragraph above has not become passe'. It has been surpassed. The myth and narrative of the last 13 years is in flux. Your interest in what really happened September 11, 2001 is evident. The conclusive evidence of a new energy technology can be traced to the event of 9/11/2001. The question begs asking; Why has the research and development of military weapons using directed energy, electromagnetic longitudinal waves, scalar waves, micro-wave technology, otherwise known as Star Wars Defense Initiative been used for weapons technology and not for peaceful energy endeavors? Ask your Congressman sitting on Energy, Space, Technology, Commerce committees what they know of "directed energy" When they play dumb they are and when they intend to deceive they are as well. Thanks for your time, Gary Witherspoon

love the mystery series

Program: Marie's Mind for Murder (5 comments)
I wanted to take a moment to let you know that I continue to enjoy the mystery series. For a while now, this was a must see every Sat. night. I have now expanded to both Friday and Sat. night viewings. With a profession and family, this is quite a commitment, but I have enjoyed a peak into the life of others in distant lands. Each new series shows something new. At first, I was disappointed when a series ended, but after giving each new one a chance, I have found each to offer something new and unique. This series has even furthered my desire to experience life in a new land. And since I can now what on line, I can take MHZ wherever I may go. Thanks for provided interesting programs.

Commerce City, Summer of 2013: Adams County Social Services said a client, Kelly Peppard Threatened them, when in fact she threatened suicide due to a medical condition she could not get assistance to treat. When she left they posted a warning saying she threatened them with a gun and posted her face in their security booth. Later her Daughter Stephanie Rose Peppard went in to get assistance for medical care and food and she saw the posting. She notified her mother Kelly Peppard who contacted the department to clear up the issue stating she was threatening herself not them. They later reported to Stephanie Peppard that she was not allowed to come into the building because she told Kelly Peppard that the notice was posted. Currently Stephanie was applying to TANF for an infant born 10/22/13 and go through a program offered by the State of Colorado to become a police officer, however now she cannot do that because despite submitting a legal birth certificate Human Services is stating Stephanie does not have a child.

Gift of Life (aired February 4, 2014 @ 8:00 PM
Posted: February 5, 2014 by Harold Murphy
I saw the "Gift of Life" last night, and considered it a SUPER + hour of my Television last night. I learned a great deal. My son was an Organ Donor last year; you can see his inspiring story done by Tammy Vigil, Channel 31 (Fox T V) "Gift of Sight" about Fallen Firefighter Jason Murphy If you should want to receive a copy of the letter I received from the Recipient (only first name shown), I would be happy to mail it to your office. I am sad about the loss of my son Jason, but at the same time, I am happy that Jason helped a stranger (Rich) with his "Gift of Sight." While it is normally difficult to learn who the Recipient is, based upon the great amount & excellent work done by Tammy, both Rich and myself have permission to make direct contact with each other. My next goal is to have my son Firefighter (Aurora Firefighter) Jason Murphy honored at the next Colorado Fallen Firefighter Memorial May 10, 2014 (I believe), and to invite Rich & his family to attend for a "reunion" of our "extended family." This could make another very positive story about the Organ Donor Program. Sincerely, Harold Murphy

Disappointed
Posted: February 2, 2014 by Name Withheld
Program: Marie's Mind for Murder (5 comments)
Admittedly, I’ve become hooked on CH12’s European crime dramas over the past few months. Initially watching them was only for curiosity’s sake, I found myself quickly becoming addicted. Two of my favorites have been “Arne Dahl” (apparently replaced this week by “Marie's Mind for Murder “) and “The Inspector and the Sea” (although the other European crime dramas are also quite good, especially compared with series being served up by American producers in the same genre.) While I was a bit sad to see Arne Dahl being replaced by Marie’s Mind for Murder in the 7:00 p.m. Saturday time slot, I realize all good things must eventually come to an end (as only so many episodes of each series are released to PBS). Based on the quality of previous series, I was more than willing to give “Marie’s Mind” a try. (By “Quality”, I mean interesting and diverse character development, intriguing story lines, and a certain undefinable quirkiness to both the characters and the stories.) This is where “Marie’s Mind for Murder” fell flat (in my humble… but some say lovable opinion.) To begin, the character of Marie frankly just seemed dull. Further she seemed to lack any likeability whatsoever. Even the most dastardly of characters needs a bit of likeability thrown in at some level, so certainly the protagonist should be likeable at some level. I would go so far to say her character is as irritating as that annoying co-worker you dread seeing the first thing every morning in the office. Further, her relationship with her antagonist “Jürgen Simmel” just didn’t work. Yes, we all know the cliché relationship many crime dramas use between the main characters, that being the protagonist and the antagonist are polar opposites, yet eventually develop a mutual respect for each other and thus develop a team which draws from their mutual strengths. The reason for this failure was that the antagonist “Jürgen Simmel” was only slightly more irritating than Marie herself. Lastly, the story line was much more predictable than other European crime dramas. This predictability only added to an already dull storyline. So much of the story seemed to be only “filler”. In short, there was no more than one hour’s worth of material (at best) to fill almost two hours of show. How dull was it? I simply could not make it entirely through the episode. To my best estimate (because the episode does not fill the entire two hour time slot), I made it about three-quarters of the way through the show. While I generally will finish watching what I perceive to be even a poorly created story, at about the three-quarter mark, I simply didn’t care anymore “who done it.” Not all series (not even European ones) can be winners. This one is definitely in the “Not all” category.

I must be old and barbaric, but I find nothing wrong with the methods used in this program. I watched the end of it, so perhaps one should watch the entire program before passing judgement and damaging a trainer's reputation. I also learned a great deal from the dog whisperer about training my rescue dog and turning her into a lovely, lovable dog. Hmmm . . . a bit of a dog worshipper are you????

I will forward your concerns to our Programming Department. Perhaps they can come up with a way to make the posted schedule more clear.

It is good to see you are airing Beads, Baubles, and Jewels again but you still have not corrected the misspelled 'next on' title screen you show two or three minutes before show time (Beads, Baubles, and Jewles)...this shows a lack of professionalism I am not used to seeing on public television. P.S. You should stop blowing off people who contact you in an attempt to volunteer to work at your station.

We appreciate your feedback about our typo – you are correct that we should catch those things but apparently this one slipped through.  I have forwarded your message to operations for correction.

Bill Moyers announced last year that he would go off the air completely effective January 3rd.  He apparently had a change of heart and is still producing programming however, he shortened the duration to a half hour.
 
Here is the announcement from Mr. Moyers himself:  http://billmoyers.com/2013/11/15/special-announcement-from-moyers-company/.

I am a member of Channel 12 and a fan of Inside Washington where there is a relaxed, and many times, funny discussion on Washington politics. I tuned in at 7:30 the last two Fridays, and it is not on the air. It is a great program, and should not be discontinued. Barbara Bouche

I have information that will finish the understanding of the devout Jewish messiah & followers that
Posted: January 22, 2014 by Lisa Green 891 S ouray
First to put a naked statue on this program, about Messiah, Not good. Also What these people don't know the scriptures are the and prophets and Paul was exlplaining what Jesus Performed in the circumcision and cleansing laws. HE did not abolish the Law of God. Jesus performed the cleansing and accessing laws. His IS the LAW. That were NOT Christian nor did they teach roman christianity. THey taught Judaism. Our ideas of how to understand Judaism OR actually they way they lived in Gods commandments was tarnished by Romans who canonized the Torah and prophets and the letters of paul they manipulated. The torah and prophets and scriptures are all Hebrew or written by Isreali and jewish believing Greco -roman. To the Assemblies of disperse Israeli's, THis is where christanity the pRactice started banning Gods commandments This is Roman Christianity. THESE are the original ROMAN Laws adopted by the roman church! And why they banned God's Name. WE ARE LIVING IN a lot of These laws and their days they worshipped Their gods with TODAY , EVEN THEIR CALENDAR that they replaced Gods Commandment with! These are PART OF THE FULFILLEMENT OF THIS PROPHECY AND WHY WE NEED TO COME OUT OF IT. Rev 12:17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Yeshua Messiah. WE BEGIN…… APPENDIX F ROMAN LAW • Sunday [not Sabbath] declared to be the day of rest: “On the venerable Day of the Sun [the day on which the sun God was worshipped] let the magistrates and people residing in cities rest, and let all workshops be closed. …”[161] (Replaced with Sun day to spite God and His people) GODS LAW….. Lev 23:3 ¶ Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day [is] the sabbath of rest, an holy convocation; ye shall do no work [therein]: it [is] the sabbath of the LORD in all your dwellings. Hbr 4:4 For he spake in a certain place of the seventh [day] on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all his works. Hbr 4:10 For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God [did] from his. Hbr 4:11 ¶ Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief. Eze 20:1 Ezek 20:16 Because they despised my judgments, and walked not in my statutes, but polluted my sabbaths: for their heart went after their idols Eze 20:20 And Keep Holy my sabbaths; and they shall be a sign between me and you, that ye may know that I [am] the LORD your God. ROMAN LAW • The Council of Laodicea (c. 364) ordered that all religious observances were to be conducted on Sunday, not Shabbat. “Christians” (or Roman law and church converts), shall not Judaize and (thus) be idle on Saturday [Saturn’s Day], but shall work on that day.” (To spite God, His people,and son) GODS WORD ….. Act 21:39 But Paul said, I am a man [which am] a Jew of Tarsus, [a city] in Cilicia, a citizen of no mean city: and, I beseech thee, suffer me to speak unto the people. Act 13:44 And the next sabbath day came almost the whole city together to hear the word of God. ROMAN LAW• Observance of the Resurrection on its biblical date forbidden. ( replaced with feast of Ishtar) GODS WORD: Mat 26:17 ¶ Now the first [day] of the [feast of] unleavened bread (passover) the disciples came to Jesus, saying unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare for thee to eat the Passover? 1Cr 5:7 Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even messiah our passover is sacrificed for us: 1Cr 5:8 Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened [bread] of sincerity and truth. ROMAN LAW• Jews declared to have “soiled their hands with the most fearful of crimes.” (Because of hate and ignorance, romans blamed all Judeans and Israelis, even ones who believed, with the death of Israel’s Jewish Messiah that Came on His Own to Die for Israel and all who would enter the Covenant of God) GODS WORD – ( we know Jesus was of the tribe of Judah and devout to the commandments) Act 10:26 But Peter took him up, saying, Stand up; I myself also am a man. :28 And he said unto them, Ye know how that it is an unlawful thing for a man that is a Jew to keep company, or come unto one of another nation; but God hath shewed me that I should not call any man common or unclean. Act 21:39 But Paul said, I am a man [which am] a Jew of Tarsus, [a city] in Cilicia, a citizen of no mean city: and, I beseech thee, suffer me to speak unto the people. ROMAN LAW • Christians ( roman church/ law followers) forbidden “to have anything in common with the Jews.” GODS WORD.. Act 13:42 ¶ And when the Jews were gone out of the synagogue, the Gentiles besought that these words might be preached to them the next sabbath. Roman Law• Christians required “to separate ourselves from the detestable company of the Jews.” Roman Law• Jews forbidden to observe Unleavened Bread, because it involves a “fast” “whilst others are seated at a banquet” during the Feast of Ishtar (Easter). .. ROMAN LAW • Any Christian who attends synagogue services is also to be burned alive. GODS Word – (concerning gentiles converting) Act 15:20 But that we write unto them, that they abstain from pollutions of idols, and [from] fornication, and [from] things strangled, and [from] blood (for now) Act 15:21 For Moses of old time hath in every city them that preach him, being read in the synagogues every sabbath day. ( the gentiles would learn the law eventually in the synagogues on the Sabbath- Isreal were the ONLY People that knew God- There were believing Jewish Synagogues then) • Jewish husbands of Christian women are to be punished with death. •”Jews declared to “have no longer been led by reason but by wild violence, as their delusion may urge them.” . • Christians forbidden to observe Passover: “All the brethren in the East who have hitherto followed the Jewish practice will henceforth observe the custom of the Romans and of yourselves and of all of us who from ancient times have kept Easter together with you.” ANYONE THAT COMES INTO THE COMMANDMENTS OF GOD THROUGH HIS SON WHOS HEART IS RIGHT AND NOT FULL OF ANGER OR MALICE, CAN KEEP THE PASSOVER. IF THEY CANNOT KEEP THE FIRST ONE THEY CAN KEEP THE SECOND ONE. ROMANS REPLACED THE BEAUTIFUL FEAST OF YESHUA ( Jesus) WITH WORSHIP OF ISHTAR (ASHTEROTH) • Jews forbidden to “celebrate two Passovers in the same year” (permitted by Torah[162]). • Any new synagogue that is built immediately becomes the property of the Catholic Church, and the builder “shall be punished by a fine of fifty pounds gold for his daring.” • Christians forbidden to “tarnish your soul by communications with such wicked people [the Jews].” • Christians forbidden “to have anything in common with the murderers of our Lord.” • Christians commanded to “have nothing in common with the Jews.” • Any Jew who “dares to attack with [any] manifestation of anger another who has” become a Christian is to burned alive, “together with all his accomplices.” • Marriages between Jews and Christian women of the imperial weaving factory are to be dissolved. • A Jew shall not possess a Christian slave. “… that slave shall at once be appropriated for the imperial treasury.” • Any Jew who circumcises a Christian slave (as required by Genesis 17:12,13) “will not only be fined for the damage done to that slave but he will also receive capital punishment” (be executed).

Thanks for writing.  Correct me if I am wrong but I think you are replying to the Frontline program.  I miss the first part but plan to see the second part.  You are right when you mentioned the circumcision which is of the heart.  The old testament is the new testament concealed and the new testament is the old testament revealed.  It opens to us the plan of God through Jesus the Messiah or anointed one.

Downton Abbey season 4
Posted: January 21, 2014 by Name Withheld
Program: Masterpiece (7 comments)
I agree wholeheartedly with those viewers who are upset with the last episode of rape, etc. First of all this episode was written in such a fashion that it did not AT ALL reflect the manner in which Anna has always put herself forward. In a small way, perhaps only noticible to those who are extremely aware of the characters in this story would catch. Anna would never be playing games with the rest of the kitchen staff while her husband looks on! They are just about the ONLY COUPLE whom have a respectful, loving relationship. This was so out of context of "Anna". Julian is drifting so far off course it is sad. Get back on track and have Anna wake up to what was a horrible dream (even this takes place next season). You must have a lot of meaningless "stuff " in the future for those who will continue to watch Downton Abbey! How sad that You, Julian & your producer have decided to take the LOW ROAD! One more thing. You "PBS" should NEVER REVEAL WHAT IS COMING UP IN A FUTURE EPISODE, (LIKE YOU DID WITH THIS ONE). IT IS NO DIFFERENT FROM TELLING SOMEONE (IN THIS CASE HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE) HOW A "MOVIE" ENDS WHEN YOU KNOW FULL WELL THAT THE PERSON WAS PLANNING TO SEE THE "MOVIE" IN A FEW DAYS! SHAME ON ALL OF YOU WHO WERE INVOLVED IN THIS . A VERY DISAPPOINTED VEWER AND "X" FAN OF DOWNTON ABBEY.
CPT12 Response:
Thank you for writing to Colorado Public Television regarding Downton Abbey on MASTERPIECE and your concerns regarding the second episode of the season.
The following is a statement the producers of Downton Abbey have released concerning this matter:
 “the complex and loving journey of Anna and Bates has been central to the narrative of the show. We believe the events in this episode were acted and directed with great sensitivity. Viewers will see in the forthcoming episodes how Anna and Bates struggle to come to terms with what has happened.”
We will share your comments with the senior management of both PBS and MASTERPIECE.
Your interest in our content is greatly appreciated and we hope you continue to watch Colorado Public Television.

Crop Circles
Posted: January 19, 2014 by Name Withheld
Program: Crop Circle Update: The Wake Up Call (10 comments)
The entities that are responsible for crop circles are not benevolent! Neither are they "ancient astronauts". They are dark (occult) inter-dimensional beings that are also responsible for cattle mutilations and involuntary human kidnapping and experimentation. The ancients who worshiped these creatures became involved in human, particularly child sacrifice. Authentic research experts from Dr. David M. Jacobs at Temple University to Jacques Vallee certainly do not consider these entities benevolent. Just as this supernatural intelligence deceived Eve in the Garden, so it has seduced Ms. Greer. She belongs in the ranks of M. Blavatsky, A. Baily and A. Crowley. Your organization appears to be very leftist and through such programming are facilitating their lies and deception... and malevolent agenda. You are either useful idiots or evil.

Crop Circles/Aliens
Posted: January 19, 2014 by Name Withheld
Program: Crop Circle Update: The Wake Up Call (10 comments)
A quick note... I am a big public TV and Radio supporter. It is one of the few successful, efficient and valuable endeavors partially funded by the government. It enlightens my life -- usually that is. Today I saw the subject show, along with an interview with the film maker... To present such a show on PBS that preys on the gullibility of viewers is unconscionable. Such topics as crop circles and alien visits etc... do not stand up to any serious scrutiny; and this is well known by most viewers of public TV. What CPT-12 is trying to accomplish with such presentations and interviews is beyond my grasp, unless it is an attempt to pull in the Star News audience to public TV. Shame on you. For me, however, I do enjoy watching such charlatan television from time to time as a reminder of the fact that in this country there is still a sucker born every minute; and to not expect rational discourse in all areas of life. Sometimes it is a useful lesson. Also, sometimes, when in the right mood, I find these shows funny. But seriously, I would not donate money to a PBS station for such junk. I can always turn to channel 22.5 or whatever for it.

A lot of people haven't had a chance to see the original movie Gasland. It would be great if you could show it! Colorado Public Television 12 is looked to by many people for good documentary films. And many are just now looking to find out more about the people's views, and their scientists' views, on oil & gas development, including its newer technique of horizontal fracturing, and the whole process commonly called fracking. It would be super if you show the award-winning movie GASLAND, and then later GASLAND PART II. Thank you for previously showing SPLIT ESTATE, so much of which was about Colorado.

Program: FrackNation (31 comments)
If you have tuned in to other television stations, listened to radio, read newspapers, or gone on the internet, you most likely have come across advertising, by the oil and gas industry, promoting fracking. The oil and gas industry is probably the richest, most powerful industry on earth and has pockets deeper than a fracked well. Their propaganda is everywhere, and I don't appreciate seeing it (FrackNation) on Channel 12. I see public television as an alternative to the commercial media which promotes corporate generated falsehoods, and doesn't give us unbiased reporting. Please don't support an industry and viewpoint that has destroyed entire ecosystems and could potentially cause mass extinctions through climate change. Your funds would be better spent exposing how fossil fuels are a large contributor to climate change, and threaten all life support systems on Earth. At the very least, show programs that support unbiased, scientifically accurate accounts of the issue.

Will you air programming that presents the other side of the GMO discussion? I will be disappointed if you don't because there are facts that oppose some of the scare tactics I am seeing on this program. I would be interested to know if you are open to airing both sides of this issue.
CPT12 Response:
Thank you for your comments. CPT12 strives to present diverse views and opinions as much as possible. The station is currently not aware of any pro-GMO documentaries that are available for Colorado broadcast. If you have any suggestions please pass them on.
An invitation has been extended to Monsanto twice to be interviewed and appear in the CPT12 studio, during the airing of a film questioning GMO testing and safety. Both times they declined and sent this comment:
STATEMENT ISSUED BY MONSANTO TO CPT12
 
Monsanto is 100 percent focused on agriculture and our business succeeds when farmers find our products offer them value on their farms. Because Monsanto is a leader in biotechnology, our company and products are often the subject of activist campaigns which are not always balanced or accurate. We provide Monsanto’s position and perspective on a wide range of issues at www.monsanto.com.
 
 
When investigative, sometimes controversial or independent films are aired as part of our fundraising schedule, we present information as - just that. We highlight that we are presenting a pointed side of a certain issue or idea, and always encourage people to do their own research and investigation.
 
Thank you for taking some time to investigate today!

I have been aware of GMOs for a number of years and have been frightened for those same number of years. How can large companies like Monsanto get away with their "God-like" behaviors? I want to know about GMOs in my food because I would not buy them for myself or my family. Where is the FDA in this debate? Where is the Agriculture department? Does money really outweigh everything else? I am truly shamed by how little 'voice' we actually have to change how our food supply is begotten. Globally, we will in the future and have in the past paid for those wrong decisions concerning our food supply. May God help us all.

I'm appalled that CPT is allowing this film to air. Although mockumentaries can be wonderful, this film does not lie within that genre. It lies in a new category, and I just coined the term - "Crockumentary" This film intends to intentionally mislead the audience on issues very important to Coloradans, and it does so by using blatant lies disguised as truths. Misleading the public on extremely important issues relating to their health and well being, the environment in which they live, the rapidly changing climate, the fiscal impacts of "fracking" is something which I believe CPT12 should distance themselves from to save credibility, but also to avoid an onslaught of what has already been a relentless campaign by the oil and gas industry to force themselves upon - and into - Colorado in any manner they deem fit. PLEASE DO NOT SHOW THIS PIECE OF CORPORATE PROPAGANDA ON YOUR CHANNEL!!

Unbalanced approach to fracking info

Program: FrackNation (31 comments)
I find it very frustrating that you will only be presenting a very biased viewpoint regarding fracking on this upcoming show. Each person on your panel is basically funded by oil and gas to present a viewpoint. I demand that you do the same for those opposed to Fracking! Unless of course you are no longer a public television station! This is what I'd expect from GE (NBC), not public broadcasting. If you want to stay true to your charter and mission statement, you should show Gasland, Gasland 2 or have on a panel to discuss the health, environmental, and economic questions associated with fracking--let alone a policy debate and discussion of falling property values and an erosion of civil liberties regarding oil and gas drilling in CO.

Colorado Public Television did air the film Split Estate (a less favorable film on the consequences of fracking) directly before FrackNation this weekend. 
If you missed it, it  will re-air Sunday, February 23 at 3:00 pm on Channel 12.2.
Fracking is a very controversial issue in our region. CPT12 hoped to present our viewers with films that represent different points of view on the issue.
Viewer comments  help guide future CPT12  programming decisions. I will forward your request to air Gasland. Hopefully we can secure the broadcast rights to air.

TERRIBLE MISTAKE TO SHOW frack nation
Posted: January 17, 2014 by Susan W
Program: FrackNation (31 comments)
Unbelievable that you'd show that piece of trash on our TV. If there's one thing I've learned it's that the oil and gas industry is corrupt and all the information they are putting out are LIES LIES LIES! CPT should be ashamed to view such trash. The 'film makers' of the mockumentary frack nation are garbage and are poor excuses of humans with dignity. In fact, they have no pulse for humanity and health. SICK!!

I want to bring to your attention that the showing of 'frack nation' is a bit disturbing in that, the information presented is slander with corrupt oil and gas special interest and appears to not be an accurate portrayal of oil and gas extraction but rather the desensitizing of the citizens of Colorado. Some facts about Frack Nation: http://truth-out.org/news/item/16757-exposed-fracknation-deploys-tobacco-playbook-in-response-to-gasland-2 http://www.desmogblog.com/2013/05/28/fracknation-part-two-koch-industries-ties-bind https://vimeo.com/69627896 www.pinkskyny.com I advise the showing of GASLAND 1 please.

I support bps financially. However, I will not continue to do so if you show Fracknation or other industry-PR propaganda. That film is full of outright lies and misleading, out-of-context statements. It is not balanced or truthful. It is harmful to Colorado and beneficial only to oil and gas corporations. Instead, show Gasland, Gasland 11, and Josh Fox's new film THE SKY IS PINK
Thanks!

Just found out you are going to be showing FrackNation this weekend. Thank you for presenting all sides of the debate. It seems there is a particular demographic (primarily political) that feels public television belongs to them and that only programs that promote, and agree with, their beliefs and opinions should be aired on public television. Anything aired that doesn't meet their self-imposed delusions, and, OMG, they will never support public television again!! Grow up people. Thank you CPT12 for refusing to be bullied by these bullies. I wanted to get to one of the past local viewings of FrackNation, but was never able to. Now I can watch it on CPT12! My only complaint is that you put it on at a time (1-3am, or 3-5am) that makes it difficult for many people to watch, including myself (no DVR service).
CPT12 Response:
Thanks for writing.  We are glad you enjoy our programming.  Thank you for the encouraging words also.  We try to make programming during pledge time available during prime time and late hours such as 1-5 am in the morning.  This was not one of those times.  I will let the appropriate person aware of your request.

Past art auction, 1982
Posted: January 16, 2014 by William Dawson
Hello. My name is Chris Dawson. My mother Mary J. Dawson (Long at the time) purchased a print during your 1982 art auction. She has since passed. I now have the print and have no idea who painted the original. She also had it signed by the artist but either my friends and I are blind or it's a signature by a painter! It is a picture of an indian in full chief headdress. If you could either tell me who the artist is or maybe a place I can go to see the video footage of the auction I would really appreciate it. It's one of the few thing's I have left from her. Thank you for what ever help you can give me. I grew up watching you station and still watch public television every chance I get. Thank you.

Pardon typo-Just like that..
Posted: January 13, 2014 by Phil Ward
I was so upset with Downton Abbey, I made a few typos and cannot correct.
Episode 2-- and jsut like that
Posted: January 13, 2014 by Phil Ward
I think in pop culture it will simply be known as Episodoe 2-- and just like that I will never watch Downton Abbey again. That episode will be studied by film and TV series writers for years as to how you can take a extremely popular series and kill it in 5 minutes. I consider myself sophisticated. I know why and will not bother to explain it. I will never trust Downton Abbey writers again and in fact it was time for me to give it up anyway. Thanks, Julian Fellowes for the good memories ad now the extremely shallow treatment of art and society. That is NOT how you deal with rape. Good bye, Downton Abbey..
CPT12 Response:
Thank you for writing to Colorado Public Television regarding Downton Abbey on MASTERPIECE and your concerns regarding the second episode of the season. Much of the incident you reference occurs off-screen and the entire sequence is done with respect for the audience and the complicated nature of what is being depicted. The program aired with a rating of TV-14, V on-screen at the beginning of the broadcast accompanied by the statement: “The following drama contains scenes which may not be suitable for all audiences. Viewer discretion is advised.”

The producers of Downton Abbey have noted that “the complex and loving journey of Anna and Bates has been central to the narrative of the show. We believe the events in this episode were acted and directed with great sensitivity. Viewers will see in the forthcoming episodes how Anna and Bates struggle to come to terms with what has happened.”

We have shared your comments with the senior management of both PBS and MASTERPIECE.
Your interest in our content is greatly appreciated and we hope you continue to watch Colorado Public Television.

Sincerely,

Esquire Magazine is saying that Columbine was the motive for Sandy hook. We believe we know why. The Columbine shooters were victims of pedophilic rape google January Incident. Adam Lanza was also a raped boy who was obsessed with Columbine. He knew that his hero Eric Harris was a raped boy.Google walsh buttrape.txt. This is a file in the El Paso Columbine investigation.Isn't it time for another closer look at Columbine? 75% of school shooters refer to Columbine. The Columbine victim's families will no longer tolerate their victimization of Columbine victim Mark Taylor. Mark learned a great deal during his investigation of Columbine and was reporting the truth. google I am Adam Lanza I will be famous

Considering that many different programs are presented by Masterpiece, why don't you put the individual titles on your program schedules and in your index? When I wanted to find your schedule for Downton Abbey, for example, I could not find it easily because it does not show up in your index by title, and your monthly program chart just says "Masterpiece" with no indication whatever as to which Masterpiece program is on. You could make things easy for viewers to find, or difficult. I am disappointed that you have chosen the latter.

You have been showing series 1100 which I have been enjoying, thank you. Today however, instead of showing episode 1112, you showed a repeat from series 1000, and are scheduled to do other repeats from series 1000 the next two Mondays, before showing what looks like the brand new series with the new host. Why aren't you scheduled to show episodes 1112 (In Stitches) and 1113 (Through Thick and Thin) to finish out series 1100?? My family and I are long time viewers and past supporters of PBS and it is hard to watch and depend on your programming with omissions like this. Thank you for your time.

Delighted that CPT12 continues to broadcast this program, defying to at least a small extent, the consisten left-of-center bias in public television (and almost everywhere else.) As to last night's program, I found it laughable that Mike Littwin continues to be asked how conservatives can win. If they are smart (and they're usually not) they'll do exactly the opposite of everything he says. Does anyone think he wants them to win? I find him horribly annoying but I'd never try to shut him up as liberals consistently attempt to do to conservatives. Sadly, it even works sometimes. Too many Republicans and some conservatives have a self-esteem problem and are desperate to be liked by those who only want to shut them up and then destroy them. So, thanks again for keeping this "token" limited government program on the air and for once, getting out of the way!

Arapahoe shooting and Police Information and Accuracy
Posted: December 23, 2013 by Name Withheld
Program: Colorado Inside Out (10 comments)
I was really disappointed to hear all members of the panel agreeing how much information had been made available and how pleased they were with the accuracy. When we got my daughter home from the school she told us the name of the girl that was shot and that she was a senior. I told her she must have been mistaken because the Sherriff announced that the victim was 15 years old. In that press conference he made the point of saying there will not be many updates because they only want to give out accurate information. It took well over a day for this to be corrected. I feel sorry for any friends or relatives of 15 year old girls attending the school that may have been unnecessarily anguished.

I do not share Mr. Allen’s praise for the repeated airing of Flight: the Genius of Birds by CPT12. I have no problem with this program airing with a disclaimer that its contents advocate for “intelligent design” and that its conclusions are not supported by scientific evidence. But that is not what CPT12 did and your channel is complicit in Mr. Allen’s charade. I also object to CPT12’s repeatedly patting itself on the back for airing this program in the way that it did. “Part of Colorado Public Television’s mission is “Serving under-represented interests by providing access to diverse and opposing viewpoints.” CPT12 has been known for airing controversial subject matter in the past. It seems to be a part of our station’s DNA. It is just the way we roll.” I repeat again: If some people think that the world is flat, or that the Sun orbits around the Earth or that Zeus created the universe, they do not represent under-served interests that warrant 60 minutes on public TV. They are simply wrong. There is a fundamental difference between airing a controversial opinion and attempting to create a veneer of credibility around a religious view that the producers of this program want to "disguise" as science. If my opinion is not sufficient, then please take the time to review the following commentary from the National Academy of Sciences. While this conclusion was meant as a rebuttal to the teaching of intelligent design in schools, I think that it is also appropriate to the airing of faux scientific documentaries about creationism on public TV. This statement is from “Science and Creationism: A View from the National Academy of Sciences, Second Edition ( 1999 ) / Conclusion” "Science is not the only way of acquiring knowledge about ourselves and the world around us. Humans gain understanding in many other ways, such as through literature, the arts, philosophical reflection, and religious experience. Scientific knowledge may enrich aesthetic and moral perceptions, but these subjects extend beyond science's realm, which is to obtain a better understanding of the natural world. The claim that equity demands balanced treatment of evolutionary theory and special creation in science classrooms reflects a misunderstanding of what science is and how it is conducted. Scientific investigators seek to understand natural phenomena by observation and experimentation. Scientific interpretations of facts and the explanations that account for them therefore must be testable by observation and experimentation. Creationism, intelligent design, and other claims of supernatural intervention in the origin of life or of species are not science because they are not testable by the methods of science. These claims subordinate observed data to statements based on authority, revelation, or religious belief. Documentation offered in support of these claims is typically limited to the special publications of their advocates. These publications do not offer hypotheses subject to change in light of new data, new interpretations, or demonstration of error. This contrasts with science, where any hypothesis or theory always remains subject to the possibility of rejection or modification in the light of new knowledge. No body of beliefs that has its origin in doctrinal material rather than scientific observation, interpretation, and experimentation should be admissible as science in any science course. Incorporating the teaching of such doctrines into a science curriculum compromises the objectives of public education. Science has been greatly successful at explaining natural processes, and this has led not only to increased understanding of the universe but also to major improvements in technology and public health and welfare. The growing role that science plays in modem life requires that science, and not religion, be taught in science classes."

Recent Celtic Women Christmas Program

Program: Celtic Woman: Home for Christmas (1 comment)
I was really disappointed in the most recent Celtic Women program and turned it off after a few minutes. Instead of the pure notes, on pitch, that I've come to expect from these singers--there were new singers trying to ape American soul -- sliding from one note to another and screeching. I dislike black "soul" music with its piercing, often screeching, off-pitch singing. Bring back the authentic Celtic music please.

Program: Flight: The Genius of Birds (16 comments)
I am the producer/ director of "FLIGHT: The Genius of Birds" and I've been following the viewer comments in response to your station's recent broadcasts of our documentary. Not surprisingly, they were an impassioned mixture of praise and rebuke for the program. http://www.tyleropenmri.comwww.cpt12.org/community/viewer_buzz.cfm?s=898&ta=1 The theory of intelligent design has stirred intense debate for more than a century. The search for a scientific explanation for the origin of life on earth is a holy grail for biologists, chemists, geneticists and philosophers...and, it should be. On behalf of the entire Illustra Media team, I want to thank and commend Colorado Public Television 12 for having the courage to present a program that challenges the conventional scientific paradigm. Many PBS stations have rejected FLIGHT because they are fearful of negative viewer response. Such decisions puzzle me. By definition "public" television exists to present and consider a wide spectrum of views not available on commercial networks. Controversy and debate are never bad things. Especially when they involve the "big questions" of life. We appreciate your open mindedness and the platform you provided for our film.

Pocketful of Miracles

I used to watch " Its a Wonderful Life " when it was on PBS . Since the major networks have gotten a hold of it they have ruined it much like everything they touch . This being said a wonderful film " Pocketful Of Miracles " is still untouched by the networks . I would love to see it especially at this time of year . The good films get such little play and the bad ones seem to saturate the air waves . Thanks and Merry Christmas

Gun control

Program: Devil's Advocate with Jon Caldara (9 comments)
Driving and ownership of vehicles is a privilege, but gun ownership is a right. We would save more lives with back ground and psychological tests before you can own or drive a vehicle. The media fuels the gun debate, because it sells ads. An example is the same night of the Aurora shootings, 14 people including an 8 and 12 yo we're killed in a one vehicle accident. There were 24 people in a pickup truck that ran of the road and hit a tree. The media gave it a small paragraph. My guess is they sell more ads to car than gun companies. Something to think about .

Program: Seeds of Death: Unveiling the Lies of GMOs (12 comments)
I'm a relative newcomer to the organic, non-GMO, sustainable farming discussion, but color me convinced. Dinking around with the food chain can't possibly end well for any living thing, plant or animal. But here's another thing that scares the snot out of me. If Monsanto (for example) owns the patent on GMO seeds, and controls (ultimately) how much of that product is available and to which farmers, what's keeping Monsanto from deciding to limit availability in order to pump up the selling price? Last time I looked, Monsanto was operating from a profit driven business model. Now I understand that there is profit to be made in organic farming, but the truth is that if you control input, you control the output. If the idea of a corporation, any corporation, controlling the "inputs" of our food chain doesn't frighten you, I don't know what will. Our food supply is too important to leave that exposed, that vulnerable, that unprotected.

Program: Train Your Dog Like a Pro (11 comments)
I cannot believe that you can air and promote such an uneducated and abusive excuse of a dog trainer! Methods like what Don Sullivan is teaching here are exactly the type of thing that lead to scared dogs lashing out and biting people. He is only teaching them that humans are scary! Not only is airing something like this completely uncalled for, it is very dangerous. I have worked in dog rescue by entire adult life, and in my experience shows like this and "The Dog Whisperer" cause so many more problems than they could ever hope to solve. I am severely disappointed in the lack of research that this station conducted before deciding to air such garbage.

Given the reputation of CPT 12, I was really excited to see what dog trainer you had secured for this show. Sadly, I was disappointed and unable to watch beyond a couple minutes of the show. The techniques used by Sullivan have been proven to be unnecessary and outdated, and I was hoping that a station such as yours would be promoting the science/research-based training that so many trainers in Colorado are currently using to help owners and dogs live together harmoniously.
CPT12 Response:
Thank you for your email.
I have forwarded your comments to the department  responsible for airing this program.
Our understanding of what motivates dogs has come a long way in the past 30 years. I remember some of Mr. Sullivan’s techniques being taught at the Denver Dumb Friend’sObedience Class in the 80’s. Five years ago,  when I returned for classes with my uber stubborn Bull Dog Buddy, it was all  about clickers, treats,  praise and socializing.
Both methods required time, patience and consistency by the trainer. I personally prefer the gentler touch.

I am extremely disappointed in your choice to air this show. I am a dog-enthusiast who trains and competes in sporting events with my dogs and have been exposed to many different methods of training over the years. So when I saw this program in my TV listings last night - of course, I was excited to watch. Unfortunately, I changed the channel about 20 minutes in to the program as I was horrified by what I saw - terrifed dogs! Don Sullivan's techniques are not only outdated but unnecessarily cruel - while promoting the use of pain-inflicting tools. The previous comments posted here summed it up pretty good about why Don's methods are harmful and no longer acceptable in the dog community. Please do not promote him or his methods. Shame on you CPT and PBS.

Dog training

Program: Train Your Dog Like a Pro (11 comments)
I have 2 dogs that I have trained using Sullivan's drop leash program over the past 5 years and it has been very effective in training the owner and teach the owner how to be the leader and trainer by his involvement and not to some "trainer" who will do it for you. I walk my dogs daily for over 40 minutes and meet others on the path that constantly compliment me on my dogs behavior and control. This being the case most of these owners are too lazy to engage the procedure themselves as they don't want to take the time even for basic obedience training. Most of these nay-sayers on Sullivan are probably "professional trainers" that want to knock the self-training program. Sullivan is very knowledgeable in dealing with dogs and their mentality and as such is very effective with his program. This also provides a bonding between the owner and dog to establish the leader of the relationship rather than a stranger doing it.

Program: Train Your Dog Like a Pro (11 comments)
Hello, I appreciate having a forum to provide feedback on your show. I am a local trainer who provides positive reinforcement based training serviced to owners and dogs in Colorado. This means that we reward dog for making appropriate choices, which increases the liklihood a desirable behavior will be repeated. Because dogs learn through the consequences of their behavior, if a behavior is reinforced, it will be repeated again. If a behavior is not reinforced, the dog will not continue to expend their energy repeating it because it doesn't "work" for them. This does not mean that we need to add pain or fear during training in order to get desirable behavior. We have amazing human brains capable of putting a man on the moon, how is it that we can't train a dog without force?! It would be laughable if we weren't fighting such an uphill battle to stop the general public from thinking this is acceptable. It's a problem perpetuated by television shows like this and others, but you guys hold the power to change things for dogs and owners for the better! How refreshing and wonderful it would be to see a trainer who actually studies the science behind training, not just some dude with a camera perpetuating abuse of man's best friend! A professional has formal schooling and maintains their knowledge by attending various seminars by the industry leaders annually, and spend lots of time studying modern training protocols to provide for the community. That said, this guy is using methods outdated by over 20 years, and is applying them to a living, feeling, sentient being! That's crazy! Anyone worth their weight would not ever consider using some of the techniques employed in this show. They are dangerous for the dog and for the handler. Please, use the weight you carry in the community to help others understand what real dog training looks like. Please don't replay this show. It is doing damage every time it is seen.

Horrible Program that was very disappointing
Posted: December 10, 2013 by Name Withheld
Program: Train Your Dog Like a Pro (11 comments)
Dear CPT, I am the President of a dog rescue in Boulder. I am always interested in training and a lifelong supporter of PBS. I was excited to watch your show Train your Dog like a Pro the other night, and recorded the entire program on my DVR. I expected it to be an educational show based on science and the best techniques in dog training. Sadly you are promoting a total hack with zero understanding of canine behavior, who subscribes to the old school training method of dominance training. The theory behind dominance training is the same theory of an abusive husband - you use force, and your victim obeys. That is all Don Sullivan's training technique is - abusive force used to get dogs to obey. There is no actual training, no understanding of the underlying issues that the dog feels so that you can decondition them to stimuli. No understanding of brain science and the fact that dogs who are learning under stress are actually not learning, just obeying. Don Sullivan can get a dog to obey because they are stressed and scared - he however cannot teach a dog anything, other than that humans are unfair and scary. Very disappointing and I urge you to pull his program from PBS. I see he is still being advertised on your website. Does anyone at PBS understand animal behavior? Please someone ask Don Sullivan how he learned his techniques. I watched his youtube video and he basically just started training dogs through dominance - he didn't go to school or train under any of the top trainers and behaviorists in the country who base their training on cutting edge science (Patricia McConnel, Ian Dunbar, Pat Miller are examples of the best dog trainers - they all have PhDs). Don Sullivan calls other training techniques Poop. Are you kidding me? Really PBS, I am appalled. If you need someone with an understanding of dog training to come in and explain how awful Don Sullivan's scam of a program is, I'd be more than happy tome in to your office and invite some actual behaviorists and professional trainers. I expect more from PBS. Don Sullivan's dominance and abuse is not training and it is not educational.

Hello, In light of all of the problems with the US Healthcare system recently highlighted by the introduction of Obamacare, can we (the PBS viewing public) request a re-broadcast of a previously aired Frontline piece - Sick Around The World ( http://video.pbs.org/video/1050712790/ ). If your broadcast rights have exipred, can't they be re-issued so that this important piece of information can be seen by a more broad section of the population - now that they are more aware of the problems with our own system. Thank you, Fred Thompson

Thanks for writing.
 
It would be great if we could re-broadcast the Frontline about our healthcare system.  Frontline rights are complex and unless the rights are loosened from the source we unfortunately can’t re-broadcast it.  It is certainly a topic of great importance that could benefit many.
 
If the opportunity presents itself we certainly will take it under consideration.
 
Thanks again for your feedback.

Yes, I am afraid we have already aired episode 205 with Buddy Guy.  Right now we don’t have it in any future schedules.  I checked the producer’s website and it doesn’t appear that you can stream the episodes.
 
Not the answer you were looking for.  Things change frequently around here so I would suggest you check the program schedule on our website – www.cpt12.org.  Just click on the ‘Schedule’ tab.
 
Thanks for watching.

David Kopel

Program: Colorado Inside Out (10 comments)
David Kopel needs to update his perception of people working in the fast food business. Saying that fast food workers are entry-level workers with no skills is a misconception he went on to use as a justification against a higher minimum wage. Kopel is apparently not aware that since the Great Recession, the age, the work experience, and the education level of fast food workers has gone UP because older, more experienced, more educated people are having to take these jobs. I think people like Kopel should get a job in fast food (on the night or weekend shifts) and see how long they would be satisfied making the current minimum wage. Seems like it is always the better-off people (those who don't have to live off the minimum wage) are the ones who are dead set against raising it for anyone else.

Thank you for your email.
I have forwarded your comments to Mr. Kopel.

RT News boycott
Posted: December 9, 2013 by Name Withheld
Program: RT News (3 comments)
Today, President Putin announced a reorganization of the state controlled media and put Dmitry Kiselyov in charge. Kiselyov is notoriously - to put it mildly - homophobic. RT News will fall under the new agency. Add me to the list of those who will no longer give money to PBS. Funding RT News is no different than funding a station which has a KKK outlet.
CPT12 Response:
Thank you for your email. I had not heard about the reorganization.
CPT12.3  is a pass-through channel of the MHz Worldview channel. Colorado Public Television does not have control of what they air or when. We take their programming “as is” off the internet. Any comments or feedback regarding scheduling  or your concerns about RT on 12.3 should be sent directly to them via the link below.

Why do you insists on pretending to fundraise during CHILDREN'S PROGRAMMING hours?!
Posted: December 9, 2013 by Bill Witherspoon
Program: Curious George (1 comment)
You have been running fundraising programming at the 8am hour for TWO WEEKS. My kids haven't been able to watch Curious George or Cat in the Hat for TWO WEEKS. We have taken to watching DVD's in the morning before school, and will likely to continue to do so. I will probably be ending my contributions to your station, since the programmers at CPT don't seem too bright and do not care about their viewers. Why in the WORLD would you run programming for old people (who absolutely ARE NOT watching at that hour) during a time when you always ONLY air children's programming? Surely you receive NO money by doing pledge drives during an air time when you are CERTAIN there are no viewers except CHILDREN watching your channel (8am-9am). This is not the first time this has happened, but it is the last time I won't say anything (and we will likely start giving our money directly to content creators by purchasing DVD's instead).
CPT12 Response:
Thank you for your email. We are sorry for the disruption to your kids’ routine.
Unfortunately, on-air fundraising is necessary to fuel CPT2’s budget which  makes our lineup of educational programming possible.
The station is always looking for new ways to raise support while striving to balance all programming and revenue goals. Sometimes this means we  must pre-empt the regular schedule.
Health and wellness programming have proven very popular in the morning time slot. Other viewers  have thanked us for providing access to information about nutrition and body, mind and spirit awareness.
May we send you out a Curious George DVD that you can play when the station is in fundraising mode? If so, please let us know where you would like it sent. We would like to make our fundraising less stressful for you and your kids.

Joan

ID not creationism
Posted: December 9, 2013 by Jan Grossberg
Program: Flight: The Genius of Birds (16 comments)
Anyone who has actually taken the time to investigate what ID really is will know that it is NOT creationism, but cutting edge science. Anyone who does not offer a reasoned, dignified, evidence-based response to the ID theorists but resorts to distracting techniques such as name-calling, put-downs, insults and other vitriol, is behaving in a manner that will do nothing but detract from any possible legitimate arguments they might attempt to offer. Those who support evolution should, as proper scientists are expected to do, welcome challenge to their theories, which, if they are correct, will withstand the challenge. If not, they should willingly examine alternative explanations that follow the evidence. Science is not name-calling. Intolerance and prejudice is embodied by it. Kudos to PBS for having the intellectual honesty and courage to present this information at prime time or otherwise. Do not be intimidated, PBS.

Disappointing Hosting during Il Divo membership drive
Posted: December 9, 2013 by Name Withheld
Program: Il Divo: Live in London (5 comments)
I'm so glad I'm not the only one who wanted to tell Channel 12 what poor hosting they had for the membership drive during the airing of the Il Divo "Live in London" concert. Granted, your hosts can't know everything about every subject that is aired, but they should at least have had some knowledge of Il Divo if they were going to attempt to talk about them (and try to raise money)! The host (Rebecca, I believe is her name) said she didn't know if Il Divo had ever had a concert in the Denver area.... they performed LAST YEAR at the Wells Fargo Theater in Denver on August 18th & 19th! And although they are an international group (Carlos Marin is from Spain, Urs Buhler is from Switzerland, Sebastien Izambard is from France... and David Miller is from LITTLETON, COLORADO)! David's family still lives in the area. If CPT-12 wants to try to raise funds, this point alone should have been worth mentioning!

You need to get the correct info to the viewers to help raise the amount of your pledges. You're talking about IL DIVO.....the commentator, a few minutes, ago, said she didn't know IF IL DIVO had ever been to Denver!!!!!!!!!!! YES! I was at their concert WICKED GAME on Aug 18, 2012 at the Wells Fargo Theatre. They performed Aug 18 & 19 and even MAYOR HICKENLOOPER declared IL DIVO DAY in August.....you can vet this on the internet. They JUST finished, a few days ago, performing the first time on BROADWAY IN NEW YORK!!!!! Their concert is A MUSICAL AFFAIR and is available to the public now. In a few weeks, they will commence another world wide lengthy tour of A MUSICAL AFFAIR. WICKED GAME tour lasted 9 months and was WORLD WIDE. BTW, they have sold over 26 MILLION albums! DAVID MILLER, a member of IL DIVO, is from Denver. PLEASE CORRECT AND ADD TO YOUR INFO....IT WILL BE IN YOUR BEST INTEREST FINANCIALLY! Cherie Price 303-261-7848

Program: Train Your Dog Like a Pro (11 comments)
I am horrified that a public TV station that has such fabulous programming,would have such a dreadful "dog trainer" as Don Sullivan on. He uses "pinch collars" and promotes "fear based training". The dog training world have worked so hard to support positive trainers such as Victoria Stillwell. It is a terrible setback to expose us to people like Don Sullivan and Cesar Milan. Shame on you! I turned the program off in disgust!
CPT12 Response:
Thank you for your email.  I have forwarded your comments to the department head responsible for airing this program.
Your feedback will help us improve our programming choices.
Our understanding of what motivates dogs has come a long way in the past 30 years. I remember some of Mr. Sullivan’s techniques being taught at a Denver Dumb Friend’s Obedience Class in the 80’s. Five years ago when I returned for classes for my Bull Dog Buddy, it was all clickers, treats and praise.

WOW! I am so thankful you are airing this, hopefully it will be aired more places. We have been watching the GMO issue for a long time and are horrified at the march toward our own destruction that is being supported by our legislatures, federal and local. And even trying to buy clean food without GMO food additives, but also without other preservatives that also apply to our genetic destruction. As far as labeling, I think the producers of clean food need to be labeling as such - organic if you want to use that term alone - but that would force everyone who is concerned about GMO to look for the labels that show non-GMO labeling. the next issue is geoengineering of the skies!!!
CPT12 Response:

It seems that pretty much everything we purchase these days has a barcode label, so labeling per se is not the problem. The information contained in the label seems to be where the problem lies.

I am not sure what was said in the recent fundraising letter but I think the episode you are looking for is NOVA: Ground Zero: Supertower.  It looks like we aired that in September.  There are complicated rights with the NOVA series and we generally don’t repeat them unless they get re-fed from satellite.

Posted: December 5, 2013 by Roberta Morrison
I wish you would bring back Doctor Who. I know it's available on BBC America, but I'm low-income and can't afford $50+ a month to buy the programming. That said I would gladly scrape together enough money, for a membership, if you'd get Doctor Who back in the line up! I know you can't have the lastest shows, but I'm dieing not being able to watch anything, but the odd mini episode on youtube. Thanks!
CPT12 Response:
Thank you for your email. Doctor Who is one of my favorites too. I will forward your request to our Director of Programming but I think the BBC America  has discovered what a gold mine they have in Doctor Who.  I believe that  acquiring the broadcast rights would be cost prohibitive even for the older shows.
Have you considered your public library? I checked the Denver Public Library’s catalog and they do have DVD’s available.

I don’t understand what all the fuss is about. Why should every show have an evolutionary bias? Pretty narrow minded I say. Are we afraid to look at alternative models that may better explain nature than the failed dogma of evolution? Considering that evolution and associated changes: 1) Violate entropy 2) Is impossible by probability 3) Has never been shown in the fossil record 4) Life (information) has never been demonstrated to arise from abiotic origins 5) Is irreducibly complex 6) Genetic mutations represent a loss of information To name just a few things, it is time to open our minds. I think the producers should be applauded. They have made a beautiful program and risked the ire of evolutionists to propose a view that expands our thinking. Thank you PBS for showing this program.

I was so pleased to be able to view Il Divo in London. They are wonderful and it is a shame that your staff did not do research to let the viewers know more about them. They did not even know what countries from which they came. So here is information that will help you so that you can present them and their talent professionally. They are from the United States, Spain, France, and Switzerland. David Miller from the United States was a member of the Colorado Children's Choir and attended high school in the Denver area. What a shame you did not tell Colorado people about this connection. Three of the four singers have opera backgrounds--this includes David who attended one of the best colleges in the US for voice and music. The group has been together for about 10 years not 2 years as was stated last night. They were the first of their kind.

This was a huge disappointment to watch and should have come with a disclaimer as it is a politico-religious statement of false claims. Evolution is what actually happened and is happening, and is best explained by natural and sexual selection. This video utilizes all the bad arguments (e.g. straw man - Boeing 747 assembled by the wind, etc.)that have come to exemplify creationism. Someone at the station should have caught this before it was aired as public TV is not the place for such rubbish... Or at least had a follow up by real scientist to explain where they went wrong.

I am not a resident of Colorado and have never watched CPT, but I heard about your presentation of 9/11 Explosive Evidence and have since watched it online. I want to express my gratitude and admiration for your station's courage in showing a potentially controversial film. No matter what anyone's opinion may be about what happened on September 11th, it has been completely taboo for reporters to ask pertinent questions or for media outlets to report on the subject in the past, and I hope the decision to air this documentary will inspire other media outlets to approach this issue from a fully informed perspective.

This video distorts the meaning of
Posted: November 30, 2013 by C Finch
Program: Flight: The Genius of Birds (16 comments)
I'm disappointed that a PBS station would broadcast a program promoting "Intelligent Design" (aka Creationism) as science. (Watch the Nova DVD "Judgment Day: Intelligent Design on Trial" http://video.pbs.org/video/980040807/ to see how & why this widely held religious belief in "Intelligent Design" was discredited.) Although "The Genius of Birds" includes visually appealing video showing the amazing ability of birds, it's primary objective is to promote Intelligent Design" by distorting & confusing the meanings of Engineering," "Design," & "Intelligence." As an Electrical Engineer (who knows something about engineering & design) it disturbs me that the producers use the word "engineering" to describe God's process for 'designing' birds, because 'engineering' is a word that describes a human process, which imagines something, builds it, discovers it doesn't work the way it was imagined, and then re-imagines & rebuilds it - over & over again. Now I don't claim to know the mind of God, but I find it difficult to believe that God would have 'designed' creatures by 'engineering' them. If He had, it seems more reasonable that an all-knowing all- powerful God would have gotten it right the first time! But if that were the case, we'd have discovered million-year-old fossils that closely resemble today's birds. But what we've found instead, are fossils of creatures that have gradually changed over time, evolving into what they are today as the result of natural selection. Of course it's possible God knew that dinosaurs would evolve into birds, and ape-like creatures would evolve into humans. But if birds & humans were what He really wanted, why did He bother creating dinosaurs & ape-like creatures? Why didn't He just create birds & humans? Or maybe God did nothing more than create the Big Bang so He could watch with wonder & joy the amazing universe unfold in unimaginable ways. I don't know. But I do know/believe that except for the videos of the birds, this movie is crap.
Great Basin program: A big "Whoops!"!
Posted: November 30, 2013 by Name Withheld
While watching your Great Basin show recently, (A show with a dad and mom and daughter exploring caves and lands in the Great Basin area), I noted 3 very harmful practices demonstrated with the general implied message that these are alright to do.. 1. They showed handling artifacts found imbedded in soil in the bottom of a cave with bare hands. This is a super wrong practice. Ask any trained archaeologist or other professional scientist. Disturbing archaeologic history, bacterial contamination and so forth.. 2. They showed thumping a cone stalagmite with bare hands repeatedly to get a sound out of it. Bacteria on hands can seriously contaminate cave formations and can cause changes in the crystals there. Another person, on getting the 'message' "this is OK to do", may eventually break the cone stalagmite off by hitting it with a big stick or rock brought into the cave. This has happened in several other cave locations. 3. At another Great Basin location, they showed picking up and taking the crystals lying on the ground there. That (once legal but often now illegal) practice is what caused loss of most of the "Petrified Forest" material and almost all of the "Devils Golf Course" material prior to 1970. That lost material is gone forever. The population of the US includes hundreds of millions of people and a few million tourists can easily strip all the crystals or other geologic material within a few years of summer tourists picking up one crystal.

A comment that CPT12 made about "Flight: The Genius of Birds"
Posted: November 28, 2013 by Name Withheld
Program: Flight: The Genius of Birds (16 comments)
In response to a comment that CPT12 made to input from one of your viewers, you said that “Part of the Mission of Colorado Public Television is to serve under-represented interests by providing access to diverse and opposing viewpoints. This one probably falls in that category”. I have to disagree. Creationism is not an “under-represented interest”, nor is it a “diverse and opposing viewpoint”. It is simply wrong, nothing more and nothing less. Natural law is not governed by diverse or opposing viewpoints. If I think that gravity no longer exists, it does not give me special dispensation to levitate. If some people think that the world is flat, or that the Sun orbits around the Earth or that Zeus created the universe, do they represent under-served interests that warrant 60 minutes on public TV? Do they represent diverse and opposing viewpoints that are credible alternatives for explaining the way the world works? Nope, they’re just wrong. And intelligent design has no more verifiable scientific support than any of the examples above.

I was totally enveloped in the program, I got in the last part and was thrilled to see this. We have a cabin in the mountains and our community homes all have hummingbird feeders. I've been looking for a video like this. Last summer we contacted lots of audoban (sp) organizations looking for speakers or video's for our community events. I'm hoping to get ahold of this or watch it again sometime on your channel... thanks for bringing in various views, I appreciated this one big time!

This program started out as an interesting soft "scientific" look at how birds work. Loved the hummingbird info and flight muscles. However, 40 minutes into the show, the science began to recede and some fuzzy thinking started to appear. It finally disintegrated into a religious pitch referring to the so-called "Intelligent Design." This show does not belong on PBS - there are plenty of right wing religious channels that can run this. Very disappointed. CPT12.. what a shame you got bated into this.

Disappointment in programming
Posted: November 27, 2013 by Ann Donoghue
Program: Flight: The Genius of Birds (16 comments)
I watched this program last night and was incredibly disappointed. Throughout the show I kept thinking, "that was badly written", "that wasn't scientifically accurate", "who is that so-called 'expert'?" and then, finally, in the last 10 minutes I found out why. It was then that it was revealed that the program entirely devoted to convincing the viewer that intelligent design was at work in 'designing' birds. My jaw dropped and I couldn't believe I was watching PUBLIC TV! You've lost me as a member and contributor. Inaccurate, poorly written programming is not what I'm looking for. I was under the impression that Public TV was to educate and inform. This show did neither and was a waste of my membership dollars.

Program: Flight: The Genius of Birds (16 comments)
I would like to voice my very strong objection to your airing of “Flight: The Genius of Birds”. This program is nothing more than thinly veiled creationism and clearly advocates for the concept of intelligent design. “Intelligent design” creationism is not supported by any scientific evidence. The “irreducible complexity” theme of this program has been repeatedly disavowed by any reputable science. “Flight” is about blatant religious advocacy and nothing more. On its website, Illustra Media, which produced “Flight”, describes its mission as producing “video documentaries that examine the scientific case for intelligent design. Working with Discovery Institute and an international team of scientists and scholars… Illustra has helped define both the scientific case for design and the limitations of materialistic processes like Darwinian evolution.” Christiancinema,com , describes this program as follows: “In FLIGHT, the ingenuity of a bird's behavior and biology showcase unmistakable evidence for design, purpose, and plan. It is evidence best explained by an intelligence that transcends the natural world.” Flight is peddled by this company along with other videos such as “Flight of Faith” and “Creation Proclaims: Flight and Spike(Vol.2)”. Unlike creationism, evolution is not a belief system but is supported by verifiable and reproducible science. Airing this program is the equivalent of offering 60 minutes of air time to the Flat Earth Society in order to promote the idea of a flat earth as a scientifically credible alternative to the idea that the earth is actually a sphere. Again, evolution is not a belief system whose validity is dependent upon individual opinion. Natural law operates independently of human beliefs and opinions. There are not always two equal and credible opinions for every position. Just ask Copernicus. At a minimum this program should have been aired with a disclaimer or introduction indicating that this program advocates biblical creationism as an alternative explanation for biological evolution. I am extremely disappointed in CPT12!

Program: Al Jazeera English (1 comment)
Greetings. I no longer see "Aljazeera News" in late afternoon / evening. What happened? Thank you, LS Foster
CPT12 Response:
Thank you for your email.
I am afraid Al Jazeera is gone from 12.3 for good.
On Friday August 16th, CPT12 received the following communique from Megahertz Worldview.
Joan
CPT12 Staff

Subject: Statements regarding departure of Al Jazeera English from MHz on Tuesday, August 20
 
Hello All,
 
On Tuesday, August 20, Al Jazeera English will cease its distribution of the channel in the United States. That means it’s newscasts will no longer be available on MHz Worldview. The live streaming of AJE on their website will also not be available any longer in the U.S. either.  Instead, Al Jazeera will be launching a new and different channel called Al Jazeera America, which is exclusively available on American cable (not thru sources like MHz.)
 
We’ll be including crawls and spots on air about this.
 
NEW PROGRAMS IN PLACE OF AJE CONTENT
 
Nationally (MHz Worldview) and online/apps/Google TV, Roku
·         The 8 AM ET AJE Newscast will be replaced with Ethiopian TV News in English.
·         The 7 PM ET AJE Newscast will be replaced with Debate (France 24), a live debate on the topic of the day, presented by François Picard.
 
TALKING POINTS
Here are some talking points for the inquiries you may be receiving from viewers as they notice AJE content is not available:
 
- Al Jazeera English is no longer distributed in the United States, consequently making the channel unavailable to MHz Networks.
 
- This is a decision made by Al Jazeera, not MHz Networks.
 
- The elimination of the AJE channel in the U.S. was made by Al Jazeera so they could launch their new product, Al Jazeera America.
 
-Al Jazeera America is available on cable, satellite and telco where Current TV used to be available.
 
-Viewers should check with their local provider to confirm the availability of Al Jazeera America in the package they may subscribe to. They may need to upgrade services. To see where you can watch Al Jazeera America in your area, click here: http://america.aljazeera.com/tools/getajam.html
 
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION FROM AL JAZEERA

This is just disguised propaganda of people who can't deal with the reality of science and what it means to their beliefs. It is dangerous pseudo-science.

I can not tell you haow angry this program on c 12-1 is making me. Still going on about illegals who can not speak english. Illegals is what this started with and it is still being dragged out. This started about 1970 . the opinion was divided between teach them english and a mickey mouse program of easing them into english. It was , "oh those poor kids, they can not handle english. Now you are broadcasting a program in mostly spanish about the same thing. Get off of it. It has been 43 years and the program still doesn't work. You have actually discriminated against them by holding them back in trying to "TAKE CARE OF THEM." ACTUALLY ALL YOU FOLKS IN FAVOR OF THIS ARE DISCRIMINATING AGAINST THEM AND AGAINST THE REST OF US. NEITHER GROUP CAN GET ON WITH LIFE, YOU KEEP DRAGGING THIS ALONG. When John W. Powell (of Grand Canyon fame) was 14 years old he ran a farm while his father was a preacher. He did just fine. Let these kids learn english so they can do fine. Please post this. It is time to get on with life after 43, yes 43 years of this.

Program: Arne Dahl (2 comments)
Not being a regular consumer of police/crime writing, I stumbled across this show quite by accident last night (Saturday, 23 Nov, 2013). Spending a fair amount of time in Europe the past few years, I generally like European TV and movie dramas. I do not minding sub-titles at all, so when searching for something worthwhile to watch last night, I was happy to see "something European" being offered and thought I'd give it a look. It was easy for me to suspend my disbelief and "buy into" the story. At that time last night, I didn't know this was the first part of a series, so I was just a little frustrated when the episode ended on a cliff-hanger. That really wasn't a bad thing... but I do hope the series continues with showings of the remaining episodes. The character development was outstanding for the entire episode. The police "captain" is a very "Judy-Dench-esk". The rest of the crew is equally well cast. In summary, if you like a good police drama that is cast by actors you probably have not already type-cast in your head, you would be well advised to give this series a look. I don't see any upcoming episodes listed on the CH 12 website... but I am hopeful they will appear there soon. This is an excellent show, in my opinion. I'm eager to learn more about the Swedish writer Jan Arnald (pen name Arne Dahl).

Local Elementary Students To Compete In 2013 International Robot Olympiad. HIGHLANDS RANCH, Colorado (November 21, 2013) - The SME Tech Cubs, a group of 3rd through 6th grade students who attend Stone Mountain Elementary in Douglas County, Colorado, will be competing in the International Robotics Olympiad which is being held, for the first time in the United States. The Tech Cubs team will compete in a series of events against approximately 1,500 students from around the world. Currently, the SME Tech Cubs is the largest U.S. team attending. This will be their first time competing in the 15-year-old Robotic Olympiad. Students, with the help of their parents, have acquired the necessary components to compete. Depending on the event, the equipment ranges from basic electrical components to kits that included multiple motors, to 12” tall ‘humanoid’ robots. Students will compete in multiple events over the 4-day Olympiad. The students will be required to build and program new robotic solutions between events. The Tech Cubs are expecting to compete in programs ranging from the Robot Push Out, Mission Challenge, Robot Movie, Energy Saving Robot, Robot Dance, to the Robot Survival throughout the event. The event, hosted by Douglas County’s Ameribotics, will be held at the Denver Convention Center December 16-19, 2013. The SME Technology and Robotics club is an after school club that is led by parent volunteers. The club, formed in 2012, has approximately 40 students. November 23 and December 7 are pre-qualifying competitions for the U.S. teams. These will be held at Westridge Recreation Center in Highlands Ranch. They will begin at 10:30 a.m. Greg Lose - lose.greg@gmail.com Wendy Merchant -wjkmerchant@gmail.com Erin Burmeister - burmeisterfam@me.com International Robotics Olympiad - http://www.iroc2013.org/. ###

I don't know if the staff is aware of this, but the schedules on your website for 12-3 have been wrong the last few weeks. At least in the primetime hours, what the schedule says and what is actually broadcast often don't match. I finally went to MHZ.org and looked at the schedule information there. It appears to be correct, so somehow, CPT12 is not getting the MHZ schedule information onto its 12-3 schedule correctly.

If you prefer, you can also call MHz Worldview at (703) 770-7100.

Thanks for using my input about the 2012 real estate increase and was behind some of use voting against Amendment 66. I was disappointed with David Koppel's response (even though many of his responses I like) since the Douglas School District voted down raising their levy increase in 2012 and thus invalidates Koppel's response that people will vote for education all the time. In fact the vote against Amendment 66 invalidates Koppel's response. Maybe I imagined it but on the 10:00 pm News on 11/8/2013 (just a couple hours after your show), Governor Hickenlooper announce that the State of Colorado was in good shape due to the recovering economy. If that is the case, why were we voting for a tax increase? (I wish you caught that and mentioned it on 11/15/2013 show.) To answer Eric's question how ObamaCare can be changed by the President, there could be two ways. The first is that ObamaCare has a lot of TBD's to be decided by the Health Secretary Sebillus. The second is that ObamaCare comes under the Interstate Commerce Department's jurisdiction (to use the Individual Mandate) and they tweak rules and regulations for the person in charge all the time.

Australian Rules Football
Posted: November 15, 2013 by Name Withheld
Hello, I was wondering, do you think you will bring back Australian Rules Football rebroadcasts? I loved watching those when they were on and have missed them. Thanks for your time.
CPT12 Response:
As you may know, we used to get Australian Rules Football from MHz WorldView on our Channel 12.3 (Comcast 252).  MHz WorldView is passed through to us directly from MHz Worldview and therefore we don’t have control over the content or schedule unfortunately.
 
In 2012 they posted this message to their website: 
 
“After a bold 18-year run, Australian Football League programming will cease broadcast on MHz following the July 7 national airing.
 
The official AFL on MHz Roku channel will also be discontinued at that time.
 
As a non-profit organization, MHz is no longer able to carry the content and delivery investment of AFL for the remainder of the 2012 Season.
 
Catch the latest action streaming online or visit AFANA's website to see where to watch throughout the U.S.
 
Direct comments to MHz via email or on Facebook.”
 
So I hope this answers your question but I am sure it is not the one you were hoping for.  Perhaps they will receive some donations that will bring it back sometime soon?
 
Sincerely,

your unreliability...
Posted: November 14, 2013 by D. Hargrave
First of all,a few weeks ago you decided to drop 2 (or 3) Deutsche Welle programs from your Saturday morning schedule, and replace them with programs of limited appeal. Most recently,you chose to drop RT News from your Monday-Friday 5:30am to 6:00am slot. Many of us wanted world news instead of the local drivel. It seems to me that reliability is fundamental to the "quality programming" you love to babble on about. How do you expect anyone to take you seriously with such capricious and unreliable practices? (let alone give you money). BTW I second the viewer who wants more NHK programs...they are good ,too.

Earth's Final Years, The current Revelation 17 & 18 era
Posted: November 13, 2013 by Name Withheld
We are on the last ten or so years, give or take. Right now we are in the Revelation 17 & 18 era. The Beast of Revelation 13, the New World Order is being implemented worldwide, whose goals are to reduce the population by over 75 percent. Wont happen. Matthew 24:22 "If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive, buy for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened." Earth's history has had Beasts before. The Dark Ages, Roman Empire, Media Persia, etc. The current one, The New World Order will end this earth for the New Earth, Revelation 20 and beyond. Amazing Facts put out a DVD that puts the final years into perspective and the beginning of the New Earth, call "Final Events." How they get to the New Earth and what happens to people who stay in the ground dead for 1000 years. Also, the bible says it is crucial to understand how evil operates in people. The Foundation of Human Understanding, (fhu.com) discovered the meditation that Jesus gave to everyone. It connects the Spirit to God. All humans have two spirits in them. One from the fallen angel and the other from God.

Last night's (November 8) Tavis Smiley show did it for me. I'll never watch it again. His guest was a lovely black actress. At one point, there was a brief clip from her latest movie in which she kisses her white lover passionately. After the clip, Tavis remarked with disdain, "You kissed a WHITE GUY???" Racism is inappropriate, no matter who were talking about. Tavis needs to apologize to the audience. We need a program host who is an advocate for humanity: Everyone in, no one out. Dr. Rousseau

Amendent 66 Failure
Posted: November 6, 2013 by Name Withheld
Program: Colorado Inside Out (10 comments)
In watching your show, I have not seen it mentioned that some school districts' voters had increased Property Taxes to support schools in 2012. This was the case of the Cherry Creek School District. I sure felt like 66 was 666 for those of us who felt like we were going to be taxed TWICE for the school system. IF Amendment 66 is ever proposed again, maybe it should have a clause in it to NULLIFY any recent elections results for School Districts raising property taxes for the schools.

MHZ
Posted: November 5, 2013 by Dale Johnson
I love the crime dramas from Sweden, Germany, France, etc. Far superior to Hollywood garbage. I just wish we the viewers, whom I am sure are all adults, would not be subjected to the blurring dots that appear every time there is a little female anatomy displayed. Since we are all adults, I am 66, I think we can handle it. If the kiddies are too young to see what a woman looks like, then they don't need to be watching the adult European programs. Are European audiences subjected to the blurring dots? I don't think so. Aren't we just as grown up as they? I have already contacted MHZ concerning this, I just thought I would contact you as well, in case they tell me that it is you that puts the blurring dots up. Thank You.
CPT12 Response:
I hear what you are saying, it isn’t like we don’t all know what the male and female anatomy is comprised of.  Things are definitely different in this regard in other countries.  We don’t blur any of our programs.  MHz comes to us ‘as-is’ and needs to follow FCC rules for broadcast here in the US.

Thank you ever so much for courageously bringing to the public, this critical and very significant v
Posted: November 5, 2013 by David Tyner
Thank you ever so much [ Colorado Public Television (cpt12.org) ] for courageously bringing to the public, this critical and very significant video profoundly seeking answers to huge questions of what this country is really about, underneath appearances and official propaganda. Think Ed Snowden’s proof of widespread self-serving govt/corporate lies and deceitfulness. Over a decade of my own healing, I have increasingly realized that I have been severely traumatized, mentally damaged, impacted, and overwhelmed by the events of 911, which as an engineer and physicist, I felt even worse that the well hidden ( cognitive dissident ) truth of those events, didn’t dawn on me until a couple of years later. People desperately need to heal, and the later parts of the video provide a great value of directing folks to use and pursue professional psychological therapy, to aid that acceptance and get to a place of needed forgiveness. The wreck of my life mandated such, as it is incapacitating to ignore the need heal. Not that we can change the past in doing so, but that our free and open society requires such. Our humanity and our dignity, demands that we honor the pain that brought us here ( or as far as we’ve come individually and collectively ). We must give up the seeming certainty of blame and judgement, and work towards a process of Truth and Reconciliation ( as did South Africa when confronted with vile hate and receptivity, that had to heal, in order to move on and survive ). I recall vividly the events of that day, in explaining details of the scope of the WTC towers size ( windows about a yard wide ) to the Spaniards I was working with on that day, as a visiting engineer teaching them about NASA/JPL’s latest communication systems — as I was a contract employee of the govt (via Caltech), and had been for 22 years. The dozens of people that day I was with, were all technically trained engineers and could NOT belief what we were seeing, as it was incomprehensible and far outside of anything we’d ever understood, and we couldn’t deny the horror of what we saw and the lives lost. This video provides surcease and comfort to me, in better comprehending the personal TRAUMA of such extreme treason and treachery, perpetrated for mere profit and control of political influence ( although corporations gaining trillions through such vile rapacity, is easily understandable, once realizing that “greed at any cost” means exactly that ). We cannot afford such any longer. As the video begins, the KEY unanswered question is “What we really need to know, is how those buildings came down,” and what is actually true. I consider everyone's FEELINGs about those events as sacrosanct, because none of us has ANY right to question how anyone else FEELs about their lives trajectory. However, because FACTs are defined as a commonly accepted truthful viewpoint and evidence, that ANYONE can verify and support by considering available details and testimony -- everyone has the right and even collective responsibility -- to question clearly bogus authority and nonsense, self-agrandizingly presented as if truth. Our country is in deep denial about the facts of those events, and the putrified wounds occurred on that day have abscessed and that vileness can only be healed by us withstanding the immediate pain of lancing these unhealed wounds, that are bleeding over and tainting every aspect of our lives, more than a decade later. The greater pain is living with the dehumanizing LIES and obfuscations, and projecting our own pains and fears upon innocent peoples on the other side of the globe that almost certainly, had nothing to do with these affronts to everything that is humane. We cannot heal unless we allow the truth to set us free, so we must endure the pain of opening the leaking wounds made to our souls. What's most interesting to me, is that so many people ( falsely ) presume that the official govt narrative ( conspiracy theory ) is more scientific and fact based, when clearly it isn't, for literally many thousands of reasons: For example, as to exactly how and how fast the 3 buildings collapsed. The same official explanation is essentially 'it happened the way we thought we saw it happened,' as if airplane damage, fires and gravity ALONE are all that is needed to know about ( and of course despicable terrorists behind it all ). Which is completely at odds with what is called unencumbered free fall acceleration, where objects can only translate ALL of their potential energy (due to position: E=mGh) into kinetic energy (due to movement: E=.5mv^3), IF there is nothing retarding that fall from height h. So when the govt officially is forced ( by a HS physics teacher! ) to stipulate the WTC7 clearly did fall at free fall acceleration, as proved in the actual video footage -- they are essentially saying that some UNKNOWN source of additional energy ( somehow first ) removed the underlying structure that had held the buildings up for decades. In physics, this is called the LAW OF Conservation of Energy, so it is an UNASSAILABLE FACT that ANY energy needed to deform, collapse, disintegrate and turn to dust the entire structure and contents of those 3 WTC buildings, HAD to slow down and encumber that observed rate of collapse. That it didn’t, absolutely proves that energy was somehow added. This is the key issue of HOW the skyscrapers collapsed, as where did that missing energy come from? It obviously did not come from some cave in Afghanistan, as the govt would have us believe ( w/o a shred of proof ). All of the movie tells us scientifically and rationally, that at worst the buildings would have broken off the top floors asymmetrically, or suffered a few collapsed areas, and the rest of the structure would have remained standing, particularly the 47 core volumes that HAD to have been severed ( at nearly every floor ) to allow the collapse that we saw. Imagine or think donuts on a stick. The energy of airplane's damage, fires that were almost out, and gravity ALONE -- are not sufficient -- to explain what happened. And if in some bizarre universe of there having been possible a progressive design collapse ( as was supposedly observed ), then it would have HAD to have occurred perhaps ten times slower and leave huge pieces of the structure, because the energy of gravity's potential could not speed up the collapse and do everything else. The energy needed to turn steel and concrete into very fine pulverized dust, is proportional the the cube of that size, so where exactly did all of that additional energy come from? And then, there’s the fact that those seeking truth are continually being obscured and stymied by what appears to be manipulative and a continuing conspiracy, that somehow bypasses what we presume are the results of a free and open internet search engine, GOOGLE: See http://westernfrontamerica.com/2013/10/08/search-engine-manipulation-google-youtube-suppress-controversial-911-truth/

Hi my name is Grant and I produced the film Torn Cloth which is showing at the Denver Film Festival this weekend. We shot the film in Thailand, but the film was produced, edited and directed in Denver. The team is all from Colorado. We thought it might be of interest to have us on for a segment. Our cameraman has some fascinating stories about his time there. It could also be a plug for the start of the film festival.

When I watched FrackNation, Even though I am extremely opposed to Fracking, I learned something I otherwise would not have. Some of the Farmers that signed leases to allow Fracking on their lands stated that had they not they would not have been able to continue farming as they have for generations and that the monies they earned from these leases enabled them to keep their farms and their way of life. This is important to take note of because it is yet another sad and revealing point that our Farmers are struggling so much they can't afford to lovingly and responsibly work their land to grow healthy food. Take notice of this important disclosure. Why can't they afford to keep their lands intact without having to make these types of deals? I think that question bears answer, which, when answered, will be fairly, responsibly and expeditiously presented on CPT12 to it's members, viewers and loyal audience. Thank you CPT12, I don't know what I would do without you.
Fracknation AND Split Estate

Program: FrackNation (31 comments)
I am a dedicated viewer of CPT12 Programming and although I am completely opposed to Hydraulic Fracking, I am supportive that both sides of this issue were presented by CPT12 Public Broadcasting. Fracknation was clearly a propaganda piece, and a poorly done one at that. I thought it was rather astute that Split Estate was aired directly following the broadcasting of Fracknation I watched, yes, back to back. Split Estate was much more compelling because of it's content of people impacted, Scientists, Dr.'s, etc. Fracknation was clearly a propaganda piece. I appreciate that both were aired, as it's important to keep our minds open with discernment and see what opposing sides to our views, beliefs are saying, purporting, propagandizing. I always appreciate when someone is open and willing to listen to information that is necessary and important but opposite to their views. I consider them intelligent, even if they disagree, but still listen and consider. Too many folks today seem asleep to some extremely important and pressing issues we're facing today, even when there are compelling FACTS and EVIDENCE. They close their eyes, stick their fingers in their ears and say "La, la, la, la, la..." with their mouths. So, I say well done CPT12 for not doing that and giving us the opportunity to use our own intelligence to discern our own truths. Bravo!
CPT12 Response:
Thank you for your comments.  You are right, one should look at both sides to form a opinion.

cutting NHK programs
Posted: November 4, 2013 by kenneth hogarth
Why the hell are you cutting NHK programing? J-Melo was to at 4:30am Nov. 4th 2013 and you aired France 24. Why????????????. Stop cutting NHK programing. During the day on Nov. 3th 2013, you guys completly cut out NHK programing all togerther between 4:00pm to 10:00pm. I watch this channel for NHK programs like Kawaii International, Cool Japan, J-Melo, and other japanese shows. You keep cutting them to air crap. Air more NHK programs or go off air.
CPT12 Response:
I suspect that both incidences you describe are due to the end of Daylight Saving Time in addition to equipment failure at the station.  I must add that 12.3 is sent to us by internet from MHz Networks in Virginia.  This service is pre-programmed by MHz Networks and airs on 12.3 as is.  We don’t  have influence over the schedule and don’t alter its broadcasts.  Except, of course, when we have outages at the station and go off the air.  To get the most up-to-date scheduling information, go to http://www.mhznetworks.org/schedule.

Just happened to catch Functional Fitness this morning. This is just the right level of exercise for me as I am over 70 years of age. I would like to see this program offered during the week. It's difficult to plan for programs that are on your 12-2 channel as they are not listed in the tv guide. Do you have an online program guide for the 12-2 and 12-3 offerings? Thank you, S. Argilla

Programming Saturday evening
Posted: November 2, 2013 by Larry Laugen
Whoever is your person in charge this evening for Austin City Limits and the general Saturday evening programs is an idiot! The programming is all screwed up. Also, why are you not in HD? Thank you.
CPT12 Response:
We were having technical difficulties on Saturday night.  The programming was recorded on our server, but failed to play back correctly.  We apologize for this inconvenience.
 
Converting our facility to Hi Definition is quite costly and we are unable to finance that at this time.  We rely greatly on grants, corporate support and viewer contributions to fund our operation.  And as some of the Federal grants given in the past have dried up, we must rely even greater on our community to support Colorado Public Television.

I was beyond surprised to turn on Channel 12-3 this afternoon at 2pm and to my amazement was a RTE broadcast of the Sunday game. What a true treat to see some Gaelic Football being broadcast on American TV. Most times to see a match we have to pay 20.00 in a pub to watch a match. I called my father and used social media to contact quite a few friends to let them know you were broadcasting Gaelic Football. I looked over your online schedule and couldn't find it listed, so I was curious as to if this was going to become a normal program? Thank you again for broadcasting such a great program and I really hope that others were able to watch such a rare event hardly ever seen on American TV. And many thanks to RTE for allowing CPT access to the program. Greg p.s. Again WOW what a special treat!!!!!!!!!!!! PLEASE BROADCAST MORE GAMES, hurling too if you can.

Program: New Scandinavian Cooking (1 comment)
I recently changed from Comcast to DirecTV to receive a sports package only carried on DirecTV. In doing so we discovered that on Channel 12 or 12-1 (which I guess is the DirecTV equivalent of Comcast's channel 251) we are not able to get New Scandinavian Cooking nightly at 6:30. We are very upset about this because we really enjoy the program, as well as many other programs we were used to viewing. Your lineup does show that NSC is shown nightly at 6:30 pm. Why am I not able to receive that program? My family loves public television and we want to see our favorite shows again! I think everyone should be able to receive public television shows, regardless of their TV provider. Thank you for your reply.
CPT12 Response:
Thank you for your inquiry and support of public media.
It is my understanding that there is a 2 tier system with Direct TV.
The basic SD tier of Direct TV only carries  Colorado Public Television’s 12.1 channel on their Digital TV channel 12.
The HD tier for Direct TV carries only two of Colorado’s 3 digital channels and here is where it gets tricky.
The HD tier of Direct TV  carries  CPT12.1 on Direct TV Channel 12.1.
The HD tier of Direct TV carries CPT12.3 Megahertz Worldview on their Direct TV Channel 12.2!
They do not carry the real CPT12.2!
New Scandinavian Cookingairs on both CPT12.1 and the real CPT12.2. You should be able to view it when it airs on 12.1.
Please click on the link below for scheduling information.
http://www.cpt12.org/tv_schedule/program_details.cfm?series_id=18357036
If you would like to view a schedule for your Direct TV 12.2, you will need to consult the schedule on our website for 12.3.
Hope this makes sense.

Mark Shield's two magical words:
Posted: October 27, 2013 by Helen Canin
Program: Inside Washington (2 comments)
Sunday, October 26, 2013: We wish Mark Shields would have elaborated more on the possibility of this sane solution to our national healthcare problems. Single Payer,(known as "Improved Medicare for All") would eliminate the redundancy and complications of private insurance companies solution to healthcare. Not discussing "Single Payer" is a disservice to our understanding of what has worked in other more civilized countries.
CPT12 Response:
Thank you for your email and feedback.
I’m not sure those 2 words needed elaboration. It is obvious to many that the complexities of the Affordable Health Care Act could have been avoided with a single payer system.
In the blogosphere, there are people from both sides of the issue who believe the Affordable Health Care Act will inevitably lead to single payer.
Time will tell.
Thanks for watching.

As a longtime supporter of Ch12, going back to KBDI days, I was disappointed by the airing of this propaganda piece. I will no longer support my local public station and am now cancelling our monthly membership withdrawal from our account. I cannot, nor will NOT support a station that draws support & funding from the Koch brothers, then airs propaganda such as FrackNation that has the ability to mislead AND HARM the public, people, & our health with this dangerous misinformation coming from this all powerful industry that has PROVEN time & again the do NOT give 2 shakes about anything BUT the bottom line-$$$$$$$$!!! It is the height of hipocrisy to accept funding from the very people that rally AGAINST public tax dollars being used to fund PUBLIC television/radio...or anything that benefits " the common man/public"- yet it is good enough for these hipocrites to use this media avenue they are against when the message is THEIR message??! Amerikans for Prosperity??! Are you freakin kidding me-since when does public tv take on as an acceptable parnership the VERY people that have called for the end of stations like CPT12! Their mantra is always to dismantle ALL public tv and radio funded by taxpayers. I could care less at this point about this crap you are airing-you lost me and my family will NOT watch Koch funded tv anymore, nor keep a membership with you. Let your detractors & haters fund you. Brenda C
CPT12 Response:
Woa! Let’s step back a bit.
CPT12 has aired Split Estate, an anti fracking documentary, numerous times in the past including last weekend. We have aired FrackNation at the request of viewers who wanted to explore the other side of the issue. We have not received any financial support from the Koch brothers.
The producers of Fracknation cite the economic benefit to farmers leasing their property for drilling and the nation’s ability to become energy self sufficient.
The producers of Split Estate cite environmental degradation (including water, air and soil) and community health concerns.
We all need and use energy. We all need a healthy environment to thrive. Fracking is a complex issue. There needs to  be a balance somewhere.
I do not know the answer, but I am proud that CPT12 aired these two documentaries representing both sides of this issue.
Thank you for your past support. I am sorry you no longer feel that you can support the station.

Program: DON MATTEO (1 comment)
I wanted to ask about the program schedule. We started to watch your shows and enjoyed Don Matteo very much and made it a point to watch it regularly. My question is it seems as if the schedulers are repeating the same seasons. We get frustrated that as soon as it seems to get close to season 5 it is taken off the air for some time then when it is returned to the schedule it starts over again. I have looked into the seasons available and there are at least 8 or 9 seasons. We always seem to be cut off at the middle of season 4. Is there a possibility of starting at season 1 and following thru to the last available season. Also could they be run in chronological order as that adds to the enjoyment. Thank you Tony

Program: Colorado Inside Out (10 comments)
It was very disappointing that you choose to treat the Douglas County school Board election so superficially. Obviously, your panelists had no knowledge of the facts of this election, including that 89 percent of the funds of the "reform" candidates comes from out of district. Actually, most of the funds in the election come from a man from Texas, Indeed, this school board is up for sale, for a political agenda, not for the students, the teachers or the parents. I am a Douglas County school parent of 19 years & have seen the damage this current board has done to the District. Why does no one mention the salaries of the current administration or the finding of $83 million after many teachers were cut? Or the reduction in graduation requirements or the cut in the number of classes high school upperclassmen were allowed to take.

Thank you for your email and feedback.

Marijuana Taxation
Posted: October 25, 2013 by Joe Schmuckatella
Program: Devil's Advocate with Jon Caldara (9 comments)
The ballot measure seeks to tax marijuana at industrial levels, like alcohol and tobacco. But marijuana is currently being produced at boutique levels. A 40 to 50 percent tax level on a 5 dollar pack of cigarettes. pr a ten dollar bottle of hooch, is significantly different than on a 200 dollar ounce of marijuana. If they want to tax it at industrial levels, they need to allow industrial levels of production. Farm fields of marijuana would drive the price down to 10 dollars an ounce, and then the 50 percent tax would not be so onerous.
CPT12 Response:
Thank you for your email.
I have forwarded your comments to the host of Devil’s Advocate, Jon Caldera.

Wow. You guys really threw off my morning today. Normally I look forward to a bit of respite while I prepare lunches and get everything ready for my kids while they watch Curious George and The Cat in The Hat. Today however, I got a lot of screaming and crying since you were running footage of an old man advertising his ridiculous book on how to improve your brain. What audience could you *possibly* be reaching for fund raising by running geriatric programming during a time slot that is *always* children's programming? Do you realize that you are *literally* running programming for the *opposite* audience that is tuning in at that time? We contribute to Colorado Public Television each year. Please think about what you are doing and when you are running particular programs for your pledge drive. No one but children are watching in the morning before school. Please take a moment to think about how you are affecting your viewers' lives with your programming decisions.
CPT12 Response:
Thank you for your email and past support. We certainly regret that our pledge programming upset your day.
 
Colorado Public Television uses the funds raised by on-air fundraising to bring you the quality programming your child loves. Unfortunately, that means we have to occasionally pre-empt our regular schedule.
 
Health and wellness programming has proven very popular in the morning time slot. Other people have thanked us for providing access to information about nutrition and body, mind, spirit awareness for them and their families.
 
Can we send you out a Curious George DVD that perhaps you can play when the station is in fundraising mode? If so, please let us know where you would like it sent.

Straight No Chaser Loveland Concert last night
Posted: October 25, 2013 by Bonnie Byrd
I am VERY DISAPPOINTED that I did not receive the "Meet and Greet" portion of my $200 ticket purchase/fund raiser for Straight No Chaser last night at the Loveland Budweiser Center. Alissa Cunningham, Director of Marketing, kept apologizing for the 'miscommunication', but still we missed a 6pm to 7pm or so time with some of the group in what was anticipated as an actual time of meeting some of the 10 members of SNC!!! Instead, we waited till after the show and hurriedly got a photo made with the guys. But no time to get any autographs or talk to any of them. Again, VERY DISAPPOINTED in that SPECIFIC highly anticipated part of the evening that I and my friend had looked forward to for nearly 4 or more months!!! I would hope compensation is due. I mean a free drink coupon to the restaurant?? Really?? A rushed photo?? Why not a ticket to one of their other concerts and/or that meet and greet?? I'll really have to think about purchasing such promised events in the future fund raising of CPT12.
CPT12 Response:
The station is saddened that you are disappointed with the Straight No Chaser event.
The staff always tries to work with due diligence in customer service and follow through.
 
After a ticket thank you is offered on-air and web, and a pledge is processed, a follow up phone call and letter goes out to each CPT12 member to confirm the details.
 
Here is how the information read on-air and at cpt12.org:
 
Straight No Chaser
$200
2 Tickets + 6PM Meet & Greet
Thursday October 24
Show 7:30
Budweiser Events Center, Loveland
+ DVD
 
And here’s the excerpt of the call script and letter:
 
Thank you for your generous pledge to Colorado Public Television (CPT12)!  Enclosed are your tickets to Straight No Chaser on October 24 at The Budweiser Events Center. The concert starts at 7:30 pm and doors will open at 6:30 PM. The Meet & Greet is scheduled for 6pm; you will need to enter through the VIP Entrance. A representative from the Budweiser Events Center staff will lead you to the Meet & Greet.
 
Please let us know what the best form of communication is for you to help prevent information from falling through the cracks! We make every attempt to notify everyone.
 
I hope that you enjoyed the show and keep watching and hopefully support CPT12 in the future. Public media is where you find new and break-through ideas and exceptional talent just like Straight No Chaser.
 
Your CPT12 MemberCard should be on the way, and please check that out. You receive many two for one and other discounts locally, on-line and across the country.

No way would this idea even be allowed at your station, TV or Radio, Public...only if we think the way you want us to.
CPT12 Response:
Thank you for your email and programming suggestion. I will forward the link to our programming director.
If we can arrange to acquire the broadcast rights and it meets are technical specifications for broadcast, we may surprise you.
All the Best,
