Time To Scrap PBS?

“The Public Broadcasting Service is unfixable. Never mind the laughably utopian notion that member stations drive the bus. The real woe rests with the highly charged, artistically stifling politicizing that is destroying PBS. When PBS was founded in 1969, there was a brilliant idea to have an endowment that would fund it in perpetuity. PBS would be a trust fund raconteur, enlightening the masses on all kinds of topics. For a number of reasons — taxation, the power of the National Association of Broadcasters – – that went nowhere, and Big Bird, lo these 36 years, has been begging for scraps from Uncle Sam. Inaction led to chaos. It’s been a mess ever since.”
