Summary WJXT-TV (Jacksonville, Fla.) reveals that "five percent of every piece of antique furniture sold through televised public fund-raisers at six PBS stations went directly into the pocket of the president and general manager of Jacksonville's PBS station, WJCT, Channel 7, instead of toward purchasing programming, as was advertised. The trustees of WJCT set-up a phony charity to stage the shows at their own and other PBS stations, as well as legitimize the pay arrangement to the general manager."
