Stop the Direct Attack on Federal Funding for Public Broadcasting sign now

So, youвre at home at night, having nothing to do, and decide to turn the TV on. As you change the channel, there are hotline and info commercials on. At the end you start to give up hope, and there it is! Monty Pythonвs Flying Circus, something thatвs bound to entertain you, and give you laughs at the same time. What channel does it happen to be on? Your local PBS.

So you sit there and smile, watching all these actors act in bizarre ways, wondering to yourself, how can I help this public station? You see all these pledge drives but canвt seem to help in producing some money to donate,. This is where the government comes in.

As many do, I do believe that PBS will be around for an other generation to come. It would be very odd if the station was just to vanish one day. There are many people who havenвt seen a day in there life where nothing was being shown on the Public Broadcasting Station.

(APTS) These funding cuts are so drastic that they will severely impact every public television and radio stationвs ability to provide educational, cultural and informational programming in local communities and throughout the nation.

Honestly, do you really want your kids to be watching the other вsupposedlyв kid channels out there today? Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network are one of the many that receive complaints about the shows that they insist on showing our kids.

(APTS) The elimination of funding for Ready To Learn is punitive. Ready To Learn integrates commercial-free childrenвs educational television and online resources with community outreach to help parents and educators prepare young children for success in school. Award-winning Ready To Learn television programs include Arthur, DragonTales, Clifford, Between the Lions, Reading Rainbow, Sesame Street, Maya & Miguel, and Postcards from Buster.

You must remember, if you quit funding, there will be more companies who will start doing the same. The viewers support is only forty-nine percent of PBSвs funding and we donвt need that to decrease.

(APTS) The recommended 25\% cut in funding for CPB would result in my local station receiving less federal and state financial assistance for operations. This almost certainly would cause my local station to cancel educational services and slash local programming production.

So basically, the government funding for all the PBC stations in the United States is important. Unlike many other stations, it keeps its promise to entertain its viewers. Whether it be childrenвs programming, cooking, news, or British comedies, PBS is there to help brighten our day.
