INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAI‘I
Rescued or Reoccupied?



The history between Guam’s native Chamorro population and the U.S. military is complicated. After remaining loyal to the U.S. through the Japanese occupation during World War II, many Chamarros believe they were stripped of their ancestral lands. Today, they live with the threat of nuclear destruction.

INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAI‘I
The Jones Act

Thursday, October 12, 8:00 pm

 

The recent devastation in Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria re-ignited discussion about the Jones Act, the federal legislation that aims to protect American maritime workers. The Jones Act was blamed for preventing foreign vessels from assisting in recovery efforts in Puerto Rico; eventually, The Trump Administration temporarily lifted the shipping restriction there. How would the Jones Act affect Hawai‘i in an emergency situation? Is it time to review the legislation for reform, or repeal?

KĀKOU – Hawai‘i’s Town Hall:
Have You Fact-Checked Your Truth?

 

With ever-increasing divisions in our country, PBS Hawai‘i introduces a new series of live town hall events called KĀKOU – Hawai‘i’s Town Hall. In this first live discussion, we ask: “Have You Fact-Checked Your Truth?” We take on the meaning of “truth” and how we view truth in an era of “fake news,” “trolling” and filter bubbles on social media. Is there one truth – or is truth in the eye of the beholder?

 

You can email us with your thoughts in advance at kakou@pbshawaii.org, or post on Twitter using the #pbskakou hashtag. The town-hall will also be live streamed on pbshawaii.org and on Facebook Live, where you can also join the conversation.

FRONTLINE
Putin’s Revenge

 

For months, reports of Russian interference in the 2016 election have dominated the headlines. Now, FRONTLINE tells the story of how Vladimir Putin came to see the United States as an enemy — and why he decided to target an American election. In a special, two-part documentary with in-depth reporting from Moscow and Washington, D.C., Michael Kirk and the team behind “The Choice 2016“ examine Putin’s rise, rule and motivations.
