Republicans in Congress are, yet again, trying to kill NPR and PBS by completely cutting their funding. This is beyond unacceptable. NPR and PBS are the only two news organizations worth a damn but even beyond that, they are the only media outlets in this country that produce the kind of important programming that you will just can’t find on commercial radio and television. Thankfully people are mobilizing to prevent this from happening (you can sign a poll in support of NPR/PBS here and send a letter to Congress here).
I completely understand that our budget and spending is out of control but this is NOT the way to take control of it. How about looking into the spending at the Pentagon that they can’t even account for? I think that would be a better place to start than trying to put an end to Big Bird.
