GOVEROTRAGEOUS: Why does PBS get Taxpayer money?

Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt defends decision to close state’s PBS station OETA over ‘indoctrination and over-sexualization of children’ including reading of kids’ book about drag queen’s hips

  •     Shows on the network include ‘Sesame Street,’ ‘Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood,’ and ‘Clifford The Big Red Dog’
  •     Gov. Stitt’s veto means that the network will cease operations this year unless legislature overrides it
  •     He also criticized a Newshour feature that included parents’ support for gender-affirming treatments – including puberty blockers

Of course, both the article and the Governor miss the point.  Why is the Gooferment subsidizing a TV network?  Does anyone think that Sesame Street can’t get on a network without the Gooferment money?

If the Taxpayers of Oklahoma want to subsidize PBS, then let them VOLUNTARILY contribute to the PBS negations that run regularly.



GOVEROTRAGEOUS: Agree — let’s cut off any and all tax dollars from this dumpster fire of a news outlet (i.e., NPR)

Phil Magness writes sensibly on his Facebook page:

I was never a fan of Abenomics for reasons that are probably not hard to deduce. That said, it’s useful to contrast NPR’s depiction of Shinzo Abe’s legacy in their assassination coverage (“divisive,” “ultranationalist”) with NPR’s generally reverential obituary for Fidel Castro, which buried any hint that he was a mass-murdering Marxist autocrat to the bottom of the article and even cast it as a “debated” part of his legacy.

It’s long past time to cut off any and all tax dollars from this dumpster fire of a news outlet.

And while we are at it, PBS and all government media operations and support!
