DeMint - Time to End Taxpayer Funding of NPR, PBS

Quoting a press release from Senator Jim DeMint:
“Today, U.S. Senator Jim DeMint (R-S.C.), a member of the Senate Commerce Committee which oversees the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), announced he will introduce legislation to stop taxpayer subsidies of public radio and television. CPB-funded television and radio programs are distributed through National Public Radio (NPR) and the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS).

‘Once again we find the only free speech liberals support is the speech with which they agree. The incident with Mr. Williams shows that NPR is not concerned about providing the listening public with an honest debate of today’s issues, but rather with promoting a one-sided liberal agenda,’ said Senator DeMint.

‘Since 2001, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, which funds programming for National Public Radio and the Public Broadcasting Service, has received nearly $4 billion in taxpayer money,’ said DeMint.”

CPB gets ALL their funding from our taxes.
Defunding all of this is long, long, LONG overdue!
But, a Dim controlled Congress would never pass this.
So, there we have one more reason to vote the Dims out!
