4. Like any lady, PBS had the ability to say "no."
It could have spent less on programming for a while. It has a huge backlog of fantastic programs that no one has seen in 20 year or more. I could have dusted them off and re-run them.

It could have been a little less lavish in its new programs. For one thing, Meryl Streep and celebrities of her magnitude don't have to be off screen announcers. They could give some up and coming actors a break.

It could have pushed harder on fundraising from the public. It could have done a lot of things, IMO. Remember, it has little to no competition.

Instead, it chose to sell its soul.
