My dearest Armenians,

This is EXTREMELY important!!! I am asking you to please take ONLY A MINUTE of your time to sign this petition. 3778 people have cared enough to dedicate a minute to this extremely important issue. Please, do the same thing and please forward this email to your email list. http://www.petitiononline.com/pbspanel/petition.html

I have a description of the issue by an Armenian woman named Hasmig. "If you haven't heard what this is about, here's a quick summary: PBS is going to air Andrew Goldberg's new documentary called "The Armenian Genocide" on April 17. This will be followed by a panel discussion, which will include both, historians who will speak about the genocide, as well as deniers. While it should be included during the panel discussion that the genocide is denied by the Turkish government, having deniers on national television would undermine the veracity of the documentary itself. No respectable television station would host deniers of other widely-acknowledged genocides. This might be a benign error on the part of PBS, and it is our responsibility to call them on it.

A few years ago, the late Peter Jennings published a book called The Century, which chronicled the history of the 20th century. In it, he forgot to include the Armenian Genocide. As you may imagine, he was quickly notified of his mistake by the Armenian community, as well as genocide scholars. As a result, he filmed a five-minute clip on the genocide, as an addendum to the book. While this may not seem like a big deal, it shows that someone like Peter Jennings fixed his error, because people took the time to inform him of it. This is what we must do with PBS."
