No Subsidy for NPR

Quoting Jeff Jacoby
at The Boston Globe:
“A BILL pulling the plug on federal funding for National Public Radio was thwarted last week when the lame-duck Democratic majority in the US House of Representatives voted down a Republican effort to bring the measure to the floor. Introduced last summer by Colorado Republican Doug Lamborn, the legislation would bar NPR and its local affiliates from spending federal dollars on NPR programming. Of course there was never any chance that a bill targeting one of the nation’s most prominent left-of-center institutions would pass while Democrats still controlled the House. But a GOP majority is taking over in January, and ending NPR’s taxpayer subsidies ought to be high on its to-do list…

[In response, NPR] issued a statement so pompous and illogical that it could have been drafted in Orwell’s Ministry of Truth.

‘Today, good judgment prevailed as Congress rejected a move to assert government control over the content of news,’ it declared.”
