    The Corporation for Public Broadcasting the Corporation that runs National Public Radio (NPR) put in a request for 604 million of taxpayers Dollars. I think it's about time the taxpayer got off the hook for this left wing organization... It's no longer required in my opinion.

    Even if they were doing silly goofy right wing propoganda as opposed to silly goofy left wing propoganda, I would still think it a) a violation of the 1st amendment with government owning media and b) a waste of money spending tons of cash on a product that very few people use.
    Best years for public broadcasting in terms of content were back in the late 70's. I don't believe I have watched it at all since 1990

    Naturally , the progressives love the unfair advantage at public expense.. that's a given..

    Think of all those little minds they can pollute with their agenda..

    Given all the variety of media from cable to the internets to the networks to radio to print...the original justification (tenuous even at the time) for public support of CPB/NPR has long ceased to exist.
