    It is possible she may never have listened to it, and doesn't know.
    Do not write in this space!

    Cute, but not true. I recognize that Fox is not fair and balanced, although certainly better than some, and I've never heard Beck. I definitely think NPR was too liberal the last time I listened to them. That would be about ten years ago. I got so fed up I just didn't listen to them any longer.

    That's right. $60 million is nothing. But, as someone said once, a million here and a million there and pretty soon you're talking about real money. I don't care if it's $60. PBS should not be getting any taxpayers dollars. Let the DNC give PBS the $60 million. If they want to buy a media outlet they should spend their own money. Well, money they get from the unions. And, since $60 million is not even a drop in the bucket, there's no reason the DNC can't pick up the tab, is there?

    I'm beginning to think that 'liberal' really just means thinking-person. NPR has lots of different programming.

    I don't have distain for conservatism. I can't stand the mutilated self-serving version being peddled by the GOP.

    Right, because being entirely privately funded has protected CNN, MSNBC and the big three from being constantly accused of liberal bias.

    Hoo, boy!

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    That's how simple the issue is confronting the nation today.
    Because, of course, funding NPR is the first thing that comes to mind when one thinks of the unConstitutional activities of the Federal government.

    Yeah, then that pesky 16th Amendment came along.

    Except the Amendments which grant Congress the authority to pass whatever laws are necessary to enforce the provisions of those Amendments, of course.

    FOX has liberals on it's payroll. NPR doesn't have conservative on it's payroll. Also, if George Soros thought it wasn't liberal, would he be one of their top donors? He only donates to the left.

    MSNBC has conservatives on it's payroll. Does that make them not conservative?

    Why does almost every single post you make invoke Soros?
