Einstein may be a role model in terms of his career, as are all the scientists, but I really wouldn't want to be involved in any of their personal lives. Einstein, for one, had many affairs. That said, it's not your entertainment's job to educate your kid and teach them moral lessons. That's your job.
Obviously the joke failed and was in poor taste. Joe has written a post on his tumblr about it. It's worth a read.Nov 18, 2013
- An additional dimension to the problem is that PBS has a long-established relationship with the educational community, literal partnerships with schools to provide content. Years of trust for acceptable media have developed, and this content undermines this relationship.Nov 18, 2013
- Why I think this video, and the PBS response to it are horrible for PBS. http://blog.brainfacts.org/2013/11/when-outreach-overreaches/#.Uo0TZNLkvSnNov 20, 2013
And your idiotic Social Justice Warrior posturing over great humor undermines humanity.Nov 20, 2013
- ITT: White knights and women angry that Einstein would NEVER hit on them even when drunk and naked at a party. Are you jealous of Marie Curie?Nov 20, 2013
- Quite a funny video thought I agree that the Einstein-Curie interaction was a bit weird and undermined the otherwise light-hearted banter. Thankfully the less reactionary could see that the intent was innocent and the apology was heartfelt.
Interesting that the vast majority of the complaints are about the perceived victimisation of Curie with no mention of the portrayal of Einstein as a lecher. I have been trying to understand what mindset makes one entirely focus on only one aspect of the interaction without caring about others.
Perhaps more editorial oversight is required before the videos are given the green light? Joe Hanson's work is otherwise excellent, please don't pay attention to the disgusting harassment he is receiving at the hands of persons who simply want to generate misery.Nov 26, 2013
