I don't think the slant of the programming is really an issue. For me, the issue is that we have to make some cuts and we have to decide program-by-program, what stays and what goes. I just don't see a need for this funding. However, as a commercial broadcaster, I think this will cause a relaxation of the underwriting rules to allow advertising on non-commercial stations.Advertisement

Apr 1, 11, 07:19 AM #49Personally, I listen to NPR on an almost daily basis. I really enjoy the interviews with musicians and artists, as someone said, and they seem to cover a lot of stories that you just don't hear about anywhere else. But I have no problem with cutting NPR 2%. Here would be my suggestion, however: Cut every program the federal government funds by 2%. That way you haven't singled out one because it's too liberal or one because it's too conservative, but rather you cut an equal percentage from everything for the benefit of the national deficit. Like another poster said, every little bit adds up.
