Conservative zealots all over the country have been up in arms over PBS and NPR. Supposedly, they're too liberal. It escalated to the point where 100 million dollars in funding was withdrawn. Children's programming such as Sesame Street would just have been collateral damage, I guess. Well, the funding has been restored. I am throwing in my two bits now as opposed to before, when I would have just had my arguement thrown back in my face, its merit ignored.
So now, here goes
If you are the sort of person who cares enough to dedicate the time and effort needed to make public broadcasting possible, chances are you're a liberal. Conservatives involved with broadcasting would rather find homes at Fox News.
If you're the sort of person who pledges money to public broadcasting, chances are you're a liberal.
So a message to every neo-con who is whining about any alleged disparity in public broadcasting:
Do something to show that you care about public broadcasting apart from shouting about liberal views expressed in it, or fuck off.
