Tell the Senate: Don't Defund Public Broadcasting
After a supposed “sting operation” targeting NPR executives was debunked last week, right-wing members of Congress have once again proven their willingness to overlook the truth in their ruthless pursuit of a destructive ideological agenda.
Public broadcasting fell victim to another right-wing hit job when House Republicans voted to completely defund NPR. Tell the Senate that they must save public broadcasting by rejecting this legislation.
When House Republicans voted today to completely defund NPR, Right-wing members of Congress once again proved their willingness to overlook the truth in their ruthless pursuit of a destructive ideological agenda. This time the victim is public broadcasting.
Federal funding is a small part of NPR’s budget, but it’s what keeps hundreds of stations in rural and low-income areas up and running…ensuring that all Americans have access to the high quality, reliable news NPR provides. Like many of the Republicans’ planned budget cuts, cuts to NPR would hit low-income Americans hardest…while weakening a critical American institution.
I urge you to say no to this right-wing hit job and stand up for public broadcasting.
