170 Million Americans for Public Broadcasting

by Larry on January 15, 2011

More than half of all Americans use public media every month.  America’s unique public broadcasting system is a collaboration of 1,300 local non-commercial radio and television stations that meet the standards of and are supported by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.

Why support public media?  In these times it is more important than ever to get honest, unbiased news.  Real news, not opinion.  NPR actually does strive for the journalistic ideal other networks falsely claim to represent — fair and balanced. The idea is to be civil and courteous and to give a platform to all points of view, while debating their merits.

There are some folks in congress that want to do away with all funding for public radio and television, at this time in history when we need it most.  Don’t let it happen.

Join me in support for public broadcasting by signing up at 170 Million Americans for Public Broadcasting.

I wasn’t aware of this, so thank you for the information. I would also be lost and devastated, not to mention bored, misinformed or flat out swayed in my entire world view if were not for NPR keeping it real (as it were).
