THIS Is Why Conservatives Can't Stand
Paying for PBS

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 9/12/2022 12:50:55 AM

The sound of Washington Post columnist Michael Gerson on Friday's PBS NewsHour underlined how there is no debate and no democracy on PBS. They put on a RINO who says the GOP is simply awful, and the liberal on the panel says "Oh, I agree!" Republicans pay taxes to be painted as awful for opposing the murder of unborn babies. Gerson was the chief speechwriter for President George W. Bush, a moderate Christian conservative. Bush nominated Justice Samuel Alito, who wrote the majority opinion overturning Roe vs. Wade.

I just happened to see that disgusting segment while channel flipping last week. If anything in this country needs defunded, it's PBS/NPR. Truly nauseating people.

I absolutely abhor that my tax dollars support propaganda that smears my point of view as beyond reasonable. In this particular disgusting instance, my stomach turned at their righteous insistence on "bodily autonomy" of the mother. Of course, left unsaid there is no consideration for the bodily autonomy of the baby growing inside her womb. The underlying assumption of the abortion-on-demand argument is that pregnancy is something that "just happens" to a woman that is beyond her control, like developing a cyst. Therefore any argument that places moral responsibility upon the woman is beyond the pale. The Democrats have so weaponized the canard "separation of church and state" that any mention of basic human morality is immediately met with accusations of a state imposed religion. Turncoat RINOs tremble at the thought of being caught in these cross hairs, so never mention the behavior of women that make abortions necessary. That's how good Republicans get invited to all the nice cocktail parties.

PBS was originally funded by taxpayers because politicians didn't think there was enough channels for people to view. That ship sailed years ago and PBS should be immediately defunded.

Perhaps it is just my sphere of acquaintances but I know of no one who actually watches PBS, with the exception of when they had on the Four Tops several years ago as they begged for donations. Ergo, funding PBS is like using the dollars for toilet paper...Stop iT damn it!

I recall public broadcasting actually became somewhat neutral in the 90s when the GOP took the House and Gingrich was threatening to shut it down. But he and the GOPes didn't follow through. I reckon Sesame Street couldn't survive without Congress. CSPAN (funded by the networks)programming and opinion is leaning more and more left.

Occasionally they have some excellent shows, e.g. Downton Abbey, All Creatures Great and Small, etc., but there are other venues that would happily pick them up if PBS disappeared.

FTA :" PBS can't tolerate a pundit who might calmly state that the Democrat stance on abortion is just as "deeply radical" as the Republican stance,". No! No!! A thousand times No. Opposing the killing of an unborn until the time of birth is not radical. Supporting even acceding to it is monstrous.

On PBS I do watch "All Creatures Great and Small," "Midwives" and "Masterpiece Theatre". Loved the series "Downton Abby." Of course, all of these could be created for other networks -- but currently only PBS carries them. I don't watch any of their news programming. In my opinion NPR is much worse in their conservative bashing and I can't listen to any of their news programming. I don't watch a lot of television, but when I do I seem to watch a lot of British programing. Don't like my tax dollars going to pay for PBS. Would rather pay for the programming I want to see. I do pay for a couple of British channels.

Back in school they used to make us watch PBS sometimes. They would roll that huge TV cart into the classroom with the 25" TV 5 feet off the floor, and we knew two things. 1st, there was going to be no work that day. 2nd, we were going to be hit with insipid propaganda, usually featuring every race but white and every culture but ours. It was a great time to pass notes to the cute girl in the next row or toss paper wads at the class nerd.

It's long past time to get rid of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, which is, as everyone is told on PBS shows, who funds the shows, "The Corporation for Public Broadcasting, a private corporation funded by the American People." A PRIVATE CORPORATION FUNDED BY THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. Leftists would lose their minds if there was a conservative private corporation that was funded with tax dollars.

When PBS was started in 1969, it was supposed to be modeled after the BBC and deliver non-biased informative programming. Public funding was supposed to be temporary to help get it going. PBS has never been self supporting in all this time. Unlike many many other stations it has always had the begging bowl out to keep it alive. In that time it has become more biased and propagandaistic. it is the opposite of what it was supposed to be. For this reason, all government funding should end.

I was a daily listener to NPR every morning. Then in about 1994 they reported on a situation in a small town near where I worked. I had been hearing about it for months since many of the guys I worked with commuted from there. I knew the story in detail. NPR reported it exactly the opposite of what it was. I mean the exact opposite. I have not listened one minute since. PBS and NPR were created because broadcasting was expensive and thus an educational channel with low viewership could not support itself with commercials. But those days have been gone for 30 years. A channel is so cheap now some are supported only by the money of a single retiree's savings. I listen to one that is. Time to turn PBS and NPR off.

So we lose sesame street, all it is anymore is indoctrination from cradle to grave. All Creatures Great and Small, Midwives, Masterpiece Theatre & Downton Abby are all available on BBC or on disc - so you could watch them whenever you want, w/o having to make a donation.

When I was growing up in rural Indiana back in the 1970s, we could only get 2 channels on the television and one of them was PBS. I live in southern Indiana where it's really hilly. The reception on either channel was not very good and the weather had to be perfect. I remember my father fixing the antenna on the roof in hopes of catching a football game or the news. We listened to sports mostly over radio. Believe it or not PBS had the best reception and we did watch a lot of the programming -- mostly the British shows. Still don't see why it needs to be funded with tax dollars.

Comment on #2: Any discussion of the "'separation of church and state" with a leftist must include the point that any govt law, no matter to which side it leans, reflects a moral position that is rooted in a religion. In the case of abortion, a law favoring the right to life of the baby reflects a Christian moral worldview, while a law favoring the right of the mother to kill her baby reflects a view from secular humanism. Either way, the regulation will necessarily reflect a religious view. Therefore, the argument is not whether or not a govt law is based on a religious foundation, but rather upon which religious view it will be based. And since America was founded on Judeo-Christian religious views, the leftards are really only trying to replace them with those of a different religion...secular humanism.

Former first lady Melania Trump blasted a former aide who released what she says are “spitefully edited” recordings that portray her in a negative light, especially when it comes to Christmas, a holiday that was joyously celebrated in the White House in the four years sandwiched between the Obama and Biden regimes. Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, who like so many other Trump administration figures cashed in with a gossipy tell-all book on her experience, saw a perfect opportunity to get attention during her 2020 book tour by serving up the secretly recorded tape to the media which then used it as the basis for their ongoing smearing of Mrs. Trump.

The announcement was made as part of a rare public address given by the Russian president to the citizens of his country, during which he also accused Western powers of ultimately aiming to “destroy” Russia.

U.S. doctors should regularly screen all adults under 65 for anxiety, an influential health guidelines group proposed Tuesday. It's the first time the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force has recommended anxiety screening in primary care for adults without symptoms. The proposal is open for public comment until Oct. 17, but the group usually affirms its draft guidance. The recommendations are based on a review that began before the Covid-19 pandemic, evaluating studies showing potential benefits and risks from screening. Given reports of a surge in mental health problems linked with pandemic isolation and stress, the guidance is "very timely," said Lori Pbert, a task force member and co-author.
