Bush fails to kill PBS and NPR

House protects public broadcasting

The House on Wednesday evening overwhelmingly rejected President Bush’s plan to eliminate the $420 million federal subsidy for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.

The 357-72 vote demonstrated the enduring political strength of public broadcasting. The outcome was never in doubt, unlike a fight two years ago when Republicans tried but failed to slash public broadcasting subsidies.

So far, anyway. Never underestimate the will of the Republicans to work against good things.

    Yes, the only way liberal leaning radio can survive, public funding. Although I do enjoy many aspects of public radio, it does bug me that my tax dollars pretty much fund free advertising and propaganda for the left-wing agenda.
