Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

The PBS NewsHour rocks!!!

I'm a follower of the NewsHour since a long time. I'm watchin' every weeknight with Gwen Ifill & Judy Woodruff from Washington, D.C. and every weekend with Hari Sreenivasan from New York. Since Gwen Ifill died of cancer, the news are always the best than ever. Online weeknights at 6 pm EDT/EST on http://www.ustream.tv/pbsnewshour or https://www.youtube.com/user/PBSNewsHour Weekends at 5 pm EDT/EST on USTREAM only. The Extra website is interesting for the future journalists. The Student Reporting Labs rocks!!! This is the best of the NewsHour. #PBSNEWS
