“Dinosaurs are extinct. So should be the CPB,” says Phil Fretz, an editorial page writer for the Florida Times-Union in Jacksonville. Fretz thinks the corporation was necessary in 1967 to create programming diversity. “But now I have an Internet radio that picks up thousands of stations, subscription-free and with crystal-clear reception,” he says. He’d rather the government save the $400 million annual appropriation.
