PBS funds 200 stations. Why? We have single national cable channels (History, A&E, TBS etc) that reach the entire nation. So why fund 200 stations and all that staffing. The stations also suck a lot of charity money from local areas that could go to other good causes
Get rid of them...Socialist Propaganda Network. If only the public knew how corrupt these operations have become, we would of got rid of them along time ago...
Federal Funding is like 15% of their budgets, as the rest of funds are public donations. They would just have to cut their programming back to provide only what they deem necessary to the public. The rest is unnecessary programming, anyway, just like most of the garbage on other networks and broadcasting stations
it's really not that much of an announcement, PBS has stated repeatedly the government funding they receive is so small in comparison to the rest of their budget, they won't really miss it.
Lets keep it out this time. We see it cut and throw back in each and every year. NPR? The station that is 100% Liberal? What the heck is that?
HELL JUST LIKE WHEN OBAMA GUTTED NASA,, WHAT WAS IT HE SAID,, IF THIS PROGRAM IS THAT VITAL THEN THE PRIVATE SECTOR SHOULD PAY FOR IT, I SAY THE SAME WITH NPR AND PBS, LET THE PRIVATE SECTOR PAY FOR THEM
We should completely defund NPR and pbs they are no longer necessary those can all be incorporated in the private sector the 1950's have long passed.
THIS TROUBLES ME ABOUT PBS - THE ONE CHANNEL I WAKE UP FOR IN THE MIDDLE OF NIGHT - WHICH IS WHEN THEY BROADCAST THE BEST STUFF FOR FREE...PLEASE RECONSIDER...
I think Obama even proposed this. If they want to be liberal rags and wasted air time, there's plenty of Soros based entities willing to keep them alive.
.silly liberals don't they know the first gay couple of puppets is now on HBO....and no i do not mean Last Week Tonight with John Oliver and Bill Maher. Besides someone has to say it before the bigbird trump jokes happen.
