Du Bois Medal at Harvard University, in Cambridge, Mass. A “Finding Your Roots” episode that omitted references to Ben Affleck’s ancestor as a slave owner violated PBS standards, the public TV service said Wednesday, June 24, 2015. Gates, the series host and executive producer, apologized for forcing PBS to defend the integrity of its programming. He said he’s working with public TV on new guidelines to ensure increased transparency. (AP Photo/Steven Senne, File)
