On Public Broadcasting

Two points:

1) Detractors of public broadcasting act as if taxpayers are supporting the U.S. equivalent of the BBC. Nope.

2) Voice of America. It is awful. Also, it receives 100% of its funding from the U.S. government. Oh, and its budget is larger than NPR's. It is off the table?
