Thread Name: Major cuts for PBS and NPR budgets
Subject: RE: Major cuts for PBS and NPR budgets
Personal feuds aside (please), if you feel the government should be supporting public media, and specifically advertising-free media aimed at improving the availability of quality programming, do support this issue. Yes, there are highly worthy programs that make it without help, but there are also folks who would not have this exposure without help. (Intellectual food stamps? Why not?) NPR is about the only radio I ever listen to, as the quality of programming is not only good, it is often material unavailable elsewhere, on the commercial waves.
