Just de-fund NPR and let a commercial enterprise do what they have failed to do. People said for a generation that without NPR there would be no ‘Educational Programming’ - ummm, how about Discovery, National Geographic, History Channel, Military Channel and the Nature Channel.
Any one of these does, for a profit, a better job in any given year, than NPR has done in it’s entire existance. And these companies do not have a gun to our head, demanding money.
Don’t forget the Smithsonian Channel
“And these companies do not have a gun to our head, demanding money.”
I thought you had to pay for cable or dish network!
Discovery: Only Mythbusters marathons now. Although I also really like Flying Wild Alaska. National Geographic: Really like the program where they examine air accidents and look at why they happened--it helps create a safer atmosphere. History: Was once great but now forgets who it is and is trying to be the new TLC/Discovery with only reality shows now, UFO programs, or programs that seem dedicated to proving Christianity a farce and that Jesus actually came from a UFO. Military Channel: Favorite... hands down.
