NPR is always talking about how little money they get from the government and how most of it comes from 'member supported'.

So this shouldn't be a big deal for them at all.

They boast about that all the time and asking for more people to donate. They are self-sufficient, the American tax dollar taken out of the American workers pocket has propped them up. What have they become? Editorialized hit pieces by brainwashed liberals from liberal universities. Rarely is there any segment pertaining to the safety, well-being, and history of Americans and let alone factual or omitting pieces of whatever the hipster is trying to get a good grade on.

It's a bunch of who knows what gender they claim reading buzzfeed and motherjones articles.

5 or so years ago I really enjoyed npr. Last few years, especially after the election, it is barely tolerable.

In the case of NPR, from what I can gather it is one of the uncommon examples of a decline in quality corresponding with a decline of government funding. Suddenly they wouldn't touch shitty corporations and became increasingly "le based bugman" radio.

Don't get me wrong, I am not opposed to cutting NPR funding. I think 100% of NPR funding should be cut because partially subsidizing that corporate SJW bullshit is unacceptable.

PBS is always pushing their "support from viewers like you" propaganda as well

I fucking hate NPR now. I used to be an avid listener, but after 2016, no longer. They went too fucking far with their biased activism disguised as journalism.

Cutting off their funding is too generous. They have used publicly available funds to obtain privately held assets that are generating privately held revenues. They should be forced to liquidate the entirety of their infrastructure and repay the federal government everything it was ever given plus 4% interest.

FUCK NPR.

They can be political provided they allow an equally fair discussion of a topic. They don't.

I have so many good memories of listening to Prairie Home Companion in the garage with my dad as a kid.

Honestly, I'd tolerate a liberal bias(that's to be expected from a bunch of government-subsidized writers and journalists, really) but they had to turn it into fucking Pravda. I stopped listening to them when they tried to downplay the Cologne rapes.

Yep, used to wake up to it every morning; then GamerGate happened and I heard them report BS about it and it got me thinking what else were they reporting BS on.

They were always bad. I knew they were back in the late 90's when all the goody-two shoes lefty assholes in high school used to talk about it like it was all holy.

Let's hope he actually gets rid of public broadcasting, it has been communist propaganda for generations

I'd be in favor of it, if it was more like CSPAN, just live footage of the government working with no opinion or spin.

One of the ways to win the culture wars is by decentralizing the media. Right now, Commiefornia controls social media and NYC controls late night television.

But the decentralized internet medium is controlled by us.

I think NPR is also part of the reason many kids call anyone who has anything negative to say about minorities a member of Stormfront. I'm absolutely sick of that bullshit.

Yet, they can say whatever they want about white people and think that's ok. It's beyond fucked up.

PBS seemed like a good idea when my kids were growing up to learn things, until you actually paid attention to some of the messages. The fundraising days they always seemed to be broke and public supported whine... best thing was turning off the idiot box.

pbs still has a few ok kids shows, yeah it is filled with leftist messaging but nickelodeon and disney are far far worse with overt sexualized satanic anti parent anti family themes and subtler pedophelia

Why are they pretending like the public funding of NPR has anything to do with George Carlin? WTF? Are we living in two different realities? These people are completely delirious.

Yeah every time reddit is linked it really is like reading comments from a completely different world. This is why democracy is nonsense.
