Almost all of the information we get comes through the media. The media heavily filters that information to drive advertising dollars. While Public Broadcasting can claim to be free from the pressure of advertisers, they are still forced to appeal to a high percentage of listeners. This pushes them into the same audiences as advertising supported radio, since high listener numbers are what advertisers want. If this means "sensationalism" becomes the norm, then access to "in depth" material goes out the window. How are we going to solve that?
