I dunno if this counts as being in the national media, but last season on Orphan Black (BBC America), BCBS's headquarters building in Aksarben Village was used as a stand-in for a research facility in a fictional town of "Tisdale" for a quick shot.

AWESOME article about Omaha. I know this might irritate people in the forum, but the fact remains that many people on the west coast view places like Nebraska as bastions of uneducated and intolerant people who are archaic in their ways of thinking. I really hope this story gets traction and enlightens people to how complicated, strategic, and slow the progressive changes are occurring in Omaha and other places like it.
