I'm tired of my tax dollars going to support an organization that takes money out of MY pocket! I sell radio advertising for a news/talk product and why should MY customers be allowed to "buy sponsorships" on NPR and NOT spend them with me? If you want to continue funding...great but ONLY if you eliminate the "underwriting" by advertisers!

If PBS is defunded, you, TV will be under real pressure to provide good Children's TV not commercials with cartoons, The people who watch BBC, NHK, and local on PBS will be looking at your Public Files and filing renewal objections when the see your promise vs. performance.If your PBS station is filling a need that you or your fellow commercial broadcasters aren't then your asking for trouble if a change is made.

I say let them sell commercials like everyone else. They effectively already are doing that... have you ever seen the truck spots they run adjacent to their home improvement shows?

But even so, you can't just eliminate hundreds of millions in funding immediately. Cut it by 10% each year.

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.

The Romney campaign has been warned to prepare for the Million Muppet March!

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.
