Thank you P.T. these brittish owned TV stations need to go. The public can support them or not. If they don't reflect American values then they need to go anyway.
People, shut the fuckin T.V. off and start spending more time with your kids/grand kids. Most of the kids you see gettin shot by whoever are kids that raise themselves on the streets instead of their parents.
A single program like Sesame Street makes a lot of money from merchandising. All those toys you see are licensed. I think PBS is quite capable of funding itself. And yes, I donate and have the mugs to prove it. That’s how it should be: let those who enjoy the programming support it. If they don’t have enough audience to support themselves, maybe they should rethink their programming?
Stricly a political attack. NPR and PBS costs are insignificant to the budget. Just more right wing attacks on intelligence, culture and the arts. Just like......
Every person I see....including the poor...have an iPhone of some sort with their kids watching cartoons on it. So I highly doubt a lot of folks are sitting about watching PBS. And NPR?!? I quit listening bc it was too liberal. No issues here with cutting that funding.
How will Pravda, I mean PBS & NPR, pay the bills without money that's been confiscated from us?
Before the internet, the excuse was that there wasn't enough channels of information. Now there's INFINITE content. No excuse for govt funded news anymore.
Do it. All they have are anti-American programs. Years ago there was the Voice of America extolling the merits of our country. It was beamed to a lot of communists countries. Now, we have the opposite in some of these stations. I say cut funding. If they can make it on their own, fine.
Good... let them raise their own funds. Why should tax payers have to fund the liberal media. And cut the funding for Planned Parenthood as well.
How is cutting 10 and 15% of your budget devastating? They make it sound like they won’t survive. Sorry but if I cut 10-15% of my household budget we would actually still be good. Fear mongering at its best. Way to go looney liberal NPR and PBS.
DO IT. I occassionally listen to NPR "NEWS" and find they will not report anything that shows this President is doing well for this country. If theirf product is worth anything liberals will $upport them right? If they can't make it on their own, then there's your answer.
