Fight for PBS & The Fight Over Cable
A couple media links, courtesy Political Animal:
First off, it's time to fight for Big Bird again:
House Republicans yesterday revived their efforts to slash funding for public broadcasting, as a key committee approved a $115 million reduction in the budget for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting that could force the elimination of some popular PBS and NPR programs.
I'm sure this will go just as well for them as it did last time.
Secondly, on the topic of cable a la carte: I'm really just finding it relentlessly amusing that the argument over a la carte is pivoting around right-wing fundie A arguing that a la carte is good because it prevents people from having to give money to the pornographers corrupting our nation vs. right-wing fundie B arguing that a la carte is bad because it will put cable TV preachers out of business. Instead of, you know, any of the actual arguments that actually matter to 90% of the American population.
