Thanks to blog reader, Bruce, for the heads-up on this piece.

It regularly airs TV programming that makes at best dubious use of animals, including bonobos, for entertainment. NGC recently became the target of a global Facebook protest when it became known that one of planned stars for an upcoming reality show was a well-known trophy hunter.

NGC uninvited Ms. Bachman when it realized the public relations nightmare it had created, but I'm not aware of whether it changed any of its other programming.
