    NPR is different in that respect. But NPR does fine as-is.

    This cockeyed proposal, of course, comes from the worst totalitarian impulses of liberalism.
    Do you even watch PBS? After watching the complete degradation in quality in channels such as Discovery, TLC, History, A&E, among others we need PBS even more. Frontline has been some of the most insightful and informative television this past decade. Their special America at the Crossroads is incomparable anywhere else. Do you think that any of Ken Burn's excellent documentary series could be made anywhere else? What shows compare in quality to Nature or Nova?

    Indeed I do, and I stand by my statement. Nature and Nova are fantastic shows, and would do just as well on a commercial channel. Witness the success of, say, Cosmos on the Science Channel.

    Most of the "news" shows on PBS, with the exception of the News Hour, are exercises in liberal fantasy. You can get that on commercial TV with no problem at all. Ken Burns does not need PBS to produce his work, and there's plenty of stuff out there just as good.

    The point is . . . a public-funded TV network is unnecessary at this point.

    I think we should go back to when you could only own one media outlet instead of letting like 6 companies dominate all news broadcasting instead of this.

    Also, I think the FCC should be reduced to nothing more than an anti-piracy agency.
