CPB

They've gone ahead and done it. The conservative-dominated Congress and Senate have proposed a 45% cut of federal funding to the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB).

45 percent!

CPB funds local television stations, all NPR radio outlets, PBS (bye, bye Sesame Street), as well as several community radio stations, including YOURS AND MINE: KRCL 90.9 FM Salt Lake City.

I urge you to sign Move On's petition here and include a note to your Senator or Congressman. (Note: While I do support Move On, I would recommend providing your junk email address. They do not spam and don't provide your information elsewhere, but by signing the petition, you will be entered onto the Move On e-newsletter subscription.)

Please sign it.

Also, you can learn more about the proposed CPB cuts by tuning into today's Radioactive on KRCL 90.9 FM Salt Lake City (or streamed live at krcl.org) today at noon MST.
Thanks.

Does this mean we're going to be hearing DMO on a telethon now?

If we lose that funding, maybe.

Me and Danny Tartaball (sp?) in our finest tuxedos.

Oh, Ken Burns will be there, too.

This is more confusing to me than anything else. Super conservatives want to stop CPB? Home of ten part documentaries on the civil war and Garrison Keillor that boring show "Learn to Read?" I mean, why don't they go after, like, Spike TV first? Shouldn't they be more worried about boobs than phonics?
