We Found Someone Unhappy With Romney's Debate

There are two things that are clear in this argument and like a lot of what's coming out of Washington these days, both sides are wrong for different reasons.
1) The call from Republicans to de-fund NPR is for completely partisan reasons.
2) In 2012, there is no need for the Government to subsidize any time of programming. If it is good programming - and NPR has great programming - they should be able to sell it to an audience.

Let PBS secure their own funding like the rest of us do. If they are meeting such a large public need, let the public support them through contributions. Other non-commercial stations fund their operations without government subsidies.

Barry, be careful what you wish for. The next step for PBS and NPR will be competing for more commercial dollars than they are already.

Let 'em raise $7 instead of 6. Commercial broadcasters face budget issues like this every day.
