Defund NPR

Messages Sent So Far
I am writing to encourage you to defund NPR.

Our government is spending too much money as it is. It's time to start making cuts, and one of the first things to go should be NPR. National Public Radio's recent firing of Juan Williams as a news analyst demonstrates how partisan this supposedly "objective" media outlet has become. George Soros, founder and sponsor of MoveOn.org, has recently paid for NPR to hire 100 political reporters.

It would be okay for NPR to spread a radically left-wing message on their own dime, but it's not okay for them to do so using my tax dollars. Why should I be forced to pay for content antithetical to my views? If the federal funding they receive, both directly and through their affiliate stations, truly comprises such a small percentage of their total funding as NPR so often claims, they should hardly notice the change.

Americans want public media free of political agendas, however NPR has been unadulterated propaganda for last 20 years. Please pull the plug on NPR, PBS, and National Public Media. If they want to continue their leftwing, political activism, Neo-Marxist listeners can pay for that MIND-CONTROL. Sincerely,

American taxpayers expect funded media for the public to be unbiased and free of political activism. This has not been the case with NPR. If they wish to continue to be a soap box of political activism let the listeners vote with their donation dollars directly. Please DEFUND NPR, PBS, and National Public Media

I have been urging my representatives in government for many years to stop Federal funding of NPR and PBS without success or even a reply to my mailings, emails and phone messages. This past Presidentail election, their outright support of Hilary and attacks on President Trump, which are still continuing and intensifying, is not acceptable for a forced tax payer supported business. NPR and PBS extreme Leftist and Liberal slant on everything caused me, a long time supporter and volunteer, to distance myself from them. I am sure that ending Federal subsidies will not destroy either NPR or PBS, but may in fact strengthen the two with increased donations and compition in the private sector were a better product and serving that market is always successful. .

I've been long for de-funding NPR and the like. I find NPR to be often times biased and anti-capitalist and no longer neutral. They no longer serve the original intent. Even though the federal funding amount is small to NPR, that is not the point. When you start adding up all the unnecessary tax payer funded programs it starts to add up in the aggregate. When you calculate for example the National Endowment of the Arts, taxpayer funding represents the entire annual tax burden for over 450,000 working-class American families, that should be glaring and troublesome.
