Latinos give PBS a history lesson

Posted on May 15, 2007. Filed under: News & Politics |

“There is an ongoing battle between filmmaker Ken Burns and a coalition of Hispanic veterans, organizations and lawmakers over plans by Burns and the Public Broadcasting System to release a documentary on World War II that ignores the 500,000 Hispanics who fought in the war.

Now there could be a truce. After initially insisting that he wouldnt make any changes, Burns said last week that he would re-edit the film to add stories about Hispanic soldiers — not as an addendum as was suggested earlier in a lame compromise, but as part of the film itself.”
