Beller is heard saying it was “great” that coronavirus cases were spiking in red states because they might infect Trump voters and suggested Republican voters should have their children put in re-education camps.
The lawyer did not speak on behalf of PBS or make any editorial decisions, PBS spokesman Jeremy Gaines said.
“There is no place for hateful rhetoric at PBS, and this individual’s views in no way reflect our values or opinions,” he said.
Efforts to reach Beller were unsuccessful.
