It's always good to reference articles with lots of facts and figures to back up its claims
It is also good to sign your comments.This was an opinion piece, actually.
But does Big Bird make as much as Teddy Bart and Karlen Evins?
Interesting article and views. But without PBS how could we have all those pledge drives? I mean, surely there are thousands of volunteers who will be out of work and unable to answer calls...Also, what if I feel the need to trade in my first born for a PBS tote bag and I can't do it?!?
I agree with the principle that news should not be subsidized. However, I think that news has become too commercial. See 'Network' from the 70s and tell me he doesn't eerily remind you of O'Reilly.I think PBS could cope with the loss of funding, but I grow weary of FOX News and the Cato institute crying 'liberal bias' all the darn time. Also, point 2 of the opinion piece states that we have a 400 billion dollar deficit. Cutting a measley 100 million in funding is not going to curb that. That's only .025% of the deficit!
Would you support giving $300 million to Fox News or the Cato Institute?Just asking....
I read somewhere that NPR likes to tout their "upperclass" listener demographic when they look for adverti....er, sponsors. But they don't mention how much money comes in from those well-funded listeners when they go up to capitol (sic) hil for their funding.Jason
It is way past time to stop funding public broadcasting.
