It would be interesting to study whether private investors and business would step in to what we now call public broadcasting to continue the programming. This would enable government to get out of it.

We have to be willing to save everywhere we possibly can. I recently became aware, after attending a meeting this week, that historically, nations with a national debt to GDP ratio of 80% fail. A recent example is the Soviet Union. When a nations debt becomes 80% of its GDP, investors become very nervous and cash in their notes, causing collapse. Also, foreign nations refuse to continue financing its debt, leading to collapse.

So where do we stand as a nation with respect to national debt and GDP? About 66%. Scary, in my opinion. If you are not scared, I hope you are at least convinced that we must reduce government spending.

Save Sesame Street. Goodbye Teletubbies, and goodbye PBS!
I will find things cheaper at walmart than pledging $150 for a Tickle Me Elmo or $300 for The Best of Laurence Welk CD I dont want anyway.

"objections to a perceived left-wing bias "

What does he mean a perceive left-wing bias? PBS and NPR are, taxpayer supported, to push the left wing agenda.

With that said, I'm sure there are plenty of rich left wing people that will donate their money to save their propaganda machines. They just had the oscars last night, with plenty of rich left wing nut jobs that can shell out alot of money.

If they want their own political machine, then they can pay for it.

The left wing doesn't know how to run a business, and they're afraid what will happen to them unless they steal money from people who work.

I wonder if they would say the same thing about Rachel Maddow on MSNBC. She tells everyone how fair and balanced she is, and occasionally makes fun of a left wing person. However, she is vicious and rude to anyone leaning left. That's the difference. She isn't poking fun or making a comment, you can see her veins pop out of her forehead as she tries to demonize anyone that doesn't agree with her.
