Pretty annoying how we have to "save" NPR and PBS every single year. Think the politicians don't want us to have free speech over the public airwaves?

TAKEN FROM THE MOVE ON SITE:

"Congress must save NPR and PBS once and for all. Congress should guarantee permanent funding and independence from partisan meddling."


Dear MoveOn member,
George W. Bush is trying—yet again—to slash funding for NPR and PBS. This week, Bush proposed a new budget with devastating cuts to public broadcasting.1 "Sesame Street" and other ad-free kids' shows are under the knife. So is the independent journalism our country needs.

Enough is enough. We've fought this fight before and won—but we can't afford the risk anymore. With the new Congress, we can make sure this never happens again. We need Congress to insulate NPR and PBS from the political winds.

We can make it happen if enough of us sign this petition: "Congress must save NPR and PBS once and for all. Congress should guarantee permanent funding and independence from partisan meddling." Clicking here will add your name to the petition:

PLEASE GO TO THE MOVE ON SITE AND SIGN THE PETITION, IF YOU HAVEN'T ALREADY DONE SO

THANKS,
TRISH
