Spies of Mississippi: Independent Lens documentary about the Mississippi Sovereignty Commission tonight on PBS

The documentary Spies of Mississippi, a historhy of the Mississippi Soevereignty Commission, which was the segregationist spying agency funded by the State of Mississiippi in the 50s and 60s, is on Public Television tonight.  It sounds like a good one; unfortunately, I’m going to have to watch it later.

  • You sure? Nothing on the MPB web site about it, and the Independent Lens web site says it will air 2-10. Looks like a must-see show.

    Not sure. I hope I haven’t missed it. Will check.

  • Not Lee

    I don’t think it runs until Feb. 10th.

    I look forward to the show, but … it’s going to add a lotta arrows to the quivers of people who want Ronnie Agnew fired from his post as Executive Director of Mississippi Public Broadcast. There are a lotta people out there who want MPB gone: “too controversial,” “too liberal,” “staffed with liberal left wing trouble makers,” “shows nothing but hoity toity shows about English stuff that no one can understand,” “not our kinda people in charge out there,” ….

    Mississippi is blessed with a public broadcast system it badly, badly needs, but probably doesn’t have enough sense to keep.

  • Well remember Ben, it was NPR, PBS, ACORN, Amtrak, Planned Parenthood, unions and teachers that crashed the stock market, wiped out half of our 401(k)s and nearly bankrupt the country, so c’mon Public Broadcasting IS the monster under the bed..

    wink, wink

    I will have to remember to watch it. Hope I have not missed it. I have a personal interest in the spin applied. Should be interesting.
