    Whenever the right wing in America tell you media is liberal, I shake my head and wonder who what when where how. Corporations own 'Big Media' in America and corporations are not liberal by any definition of the word. But then there is a smidgen of good broadcasting left and that I guess is the last remaining target of the right. Media that doesn't presnt the nonsense heard on right wing radio or Fox is the target today. No need for Big Brother when you control the message all the messages.

    Well it looks like PBS is going to have to get that 11% funding with commercials like all of the rest of them has to do.

    I can certainly understand why the right wingers hate NPR and CPB.

    If I were a propagandist working on behalf of the GOP I'd be pissed that they exist, too.

    I'm sure you'd be fine with taxpayers money going to Fox News, right? Because that is exactly what taxpayers money being used to fund blatantly left wing media is. I don't 'hate' NPR or CPB.... I just don't want to pay for your media. You pay for it. That's fine. But, unless you are prepared to fund blatant right wing media, there is no reason why we should pay for yours. Get it? You want it - you fund it.

    Whenever I read your 'opinions', I shake my head and wonder whether you are capable of thinking for yourself and forming your own opinions or do you always just regurgitate those of other people?

    You want left wing media, you pay for it. There is no reason why the rest of us should be paying for your media.

    Why should the government be funding any television or radio stations?

    i know you are a compete idiot but in this case i agree with you

    none of us should be paying for things we don't believe in

    of course, i'm aware of the fact that you don't mind that i end up paying for some religious programs....making you a hypocrite.....


    btw...
    i've heard npr and pbs....
    "blatant" leftwing media?

    ha ha

    you are truly deranged...

    either you've never heard npr/pbs (so you are just regurgitating lies that you've been spoon fed by your conservative leaders
    or....
    you HAVE heard npr/pbs and you are SOOOOOOOOOOOO deranged that your perspective is insane....

    Republicans will burn in hellfire for all eternity for cutting off PBS funding.

    Or at least I hope so.

    I changed to democrat registration today mainly over the PBS funding issue.
