Free Press.Net Petitions to “Stand Up for Public Media.”
Political extremists in Congress have introduced six — yes, six — bills that would cut all funding for NPR, PBS and other public media. As early as next week, they could vote to pull the plug on the news, arts and educational programming on which more than a hundred million Americans rely.
Help us beat back these attacks by urging your representative to stand with the American people and protect public media. Sign the letter below to put Congress on notice: It can’t play politics with one of the last, best sources of news and programming we have in America.
For some communities, local NPR and PBS stations are the only source of serious reporting. They also employ thousands of journalists — at a time when commercial newsrooms are shedding jobs.
Whether you rely on public media for Morning Edition or for Sesame Street, tell Congress to take a stand for public media. (Go here to learn more about efforts to defund public media.)
Liked and Signed. There are way too many other programs that can be cut that would not interefere with public broadcasting (like oil subsidies)
Save PBS and NPS!
