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.
