Couple things; the only government funding going into PBS is to run the emergency broadcast service. Think about that for a moment, you are asking to remove people's ability to know if there are tornados, wildfires or even bombings coming and what to do in the aftermath. Bad idea. Second, that $445 million is so off it is borderline insanity. Only about a tenth of that is divided between ALL of the stations and national service. The rest is tax exemptions from donations. Doesn't count as funding. Third, PBS IS a 501C3 charity, so this author has no clue what they're talking about. And honestly considering they used the incorrect 'there' rather than 'their' I think we can agree they should watch more PBS. Finally, there is no reason the station should have to rely on advertising or corporate influence and money to stay on the air. This is a basic service that should be free of political or special interests.

Never will I sign such a stupid petition. My kids and I enjoy PBS and NPR is one of my most favorite news channels. I grew up with it, and I want my kids to grow up with it. Defund something that is not educational, and open minded! I am sure there is something else less important than these.

Why would anyone want to defund PBS? What has Mr. Rodgers or Downton Abbey ever done to hurt anyone? If anything, the US Govt should give more to PBS and not less.

Watching a broadcast I noticed that they referred to President Trump as "Mr. Trump". Now I'm not necessarily a supporter of President Trump but he is the legally elected President of this country. Their constant references to him as "Mr. Trump" is not only disrespectful to him and the office but also to those people who voted for him. It exposes their lack of an unbiased reporting style. For these reasons I feel that PBS is not fairly reporting and is using their platform to promote there own agenda.

Better than the PBS crap? Obviously you didn't learn your linguistic skills via PBS. PBS has provided quality programming for our families for generations. Defunding Donald Trumps weekly Florida trips would pay for PBS easily. This is a political move due to the fact that PBS dosn't have the same political views as the current administration, very sad. Our children have to suffer based on politicians wanting to deprive us of a balanced view of the world. This needs to stop.

Liberals watch & support PBS because it is a biased Liberal news organization. If it were conservative Liberals would have nothing to do with it . Viewers like me (tax payers like me) hope Trump will remove the Federal funding handout to the CPB. Uncle Sam doesn't need to fund the Liberal (fake) news organizations like CPB, PBS & NPR.
