      Public Broadcasting should survive (or fail) on its merits, not what it can suck from the public dole.

      • As always, your argument conveniently overlooks that public radio, like all non-commercial radio, is legally prohibited from competing on a level playing field. It cannot endorse political candidates. It cannot air political advertising. It cannot air any advertising at all.

        As long as the government imposes these artificial conditions, it must provide funding to compensate, period.

        Anyone who argues otherwise is just a censor who doesn’t like public radio’s content and thus wants to silence them.
