Trump Budget Proposes Killing All Funding for PBS, NPR and National Endowment for the Arts

(Before It's News)

Good. The government has no business in broadcasting or in art.

I say this as one who has logged many hours watching PBS and listening to NPR. I also love the arts. In another life I wrote and produced electronic music. I still paint. I very much enjoy (what some would consider) weird mid-century artwork.

But government has no business at all in these areas. None.

(And the thing is PBS and NPR would have more good will from small government people if they had not become just total instruments of statist propaganda. At this point it’s just gotten ridiculous.)

(From The Wrap)

President Donald Trump made good on a long-time conservative goal in his first proposed budget Thursday morning, targeting the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and the National Endowments for the Arts and Humanities for complete elimination.

Trump’s budget would zero out the $445 million budget for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, a substantial source of funding for programming and broadcast operations on public TV stations and NPR radio stations nationwide, per the Washington Post.
