NPR and PBS

I’m sick of supporting National Public Radio (NPR) and the Public Broadcasting System (PBS). What? You thought that was really made possible by donations from people like you? Have you ever donated? How much? Do you have any idea how much it costs to produce a documentary? Do you know how much it costs to run even a crummy TV or radio station? Yeah, far more than that free tote bag fifty dollar level. Even if you told two friends and they told two friends and so on, only three of you are going to donate.

I’ve never donated to PBS and I have only donated to NPR once. However, in my defense, I never listen or watch, especially since they went on the global warming fairy tale trail. Liberal as the day is long. They have a slogan that says, “If we don’t do it, who will?” I’d like to answer that. Nobody. Because it’s not worth doing. If it was worth doing, anybody would be able to do it in the commercial market, because it would sell advertising and it would support itself.

That’s right. Once again, your tax dollars to the rescue. Anymore it seems like every liberal garbage project that isn’t worth the media it’s imprinted on becomes a ward of the U.S. taxpayer. Gee, could this possibly be what Thomas Jefferson was talking about when he said, “To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.”
