PBS said it accepted Goldberg’s film based on the “recognition that the overwhelming majority of historians have concluded that a genocide took place.” But to appease a small contingent of critics, the network commissioned Oregon Public Broadcasting, a partner on the film, to produce a panel discussion comprising two historians who back the film’s premise and two who dispute it.

It's the new media.  "Balance" is defined as giving inequal sides equal time.  Kinda like the day after the Dover decision, the CBS morning show had Bill Nye and Jerry Falwell going at it head-to-head to give equal time to both sides of the issue.

God, I'm in portland and I'm pretty sure I know one of the producers who would have done that. I'll get back to this post with an update if anyone is interesting... er... interested. :0

Perhaps we should ask Larry about this? He's a Jewish holocaust 'revisionist', maybe he has some, uh, 'opinions' on the Armenian Holocaust?

Well, It wasn't my friend who produced it. Seems like kind of a non-story there. I'm not sure I can get better info. She said she'd ask though. She certainly knew what I was talking about.
