Column: No, Let’s Not Cut PBS Funding

(01/28/15 8:38pm)

Zachary Andrews recently wrote a column on why the federal government should cut its funding to PBS. His rationale is that the nation is $18 trillion in debt. He claims that the addition of a few commercials would be more than enough to keep PBS thriving. I’m not going to disagree with the functionality of his proposal, as PBS could easily survive off of private funding. My issue with cutting PBS is the symbolic loss of support for public programming.
