Public Broadcasting Mobilizes Against Romney
As Mitt Romney says, it doesn’t make sense to borrow money from China to pay for public TV or radio. But terminating the funding is easier said than done. The reason: there are more than 900 local public radio stations and more than 350 local public television stations which receive support from the taxpayer-financed Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) and lobby for the money. These entities put enormous pressure on Congress.

The CPB, which supports the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS), receives approximately $450 million annually from federal taxpayers.

“I’m gonna stop the subsidy to PBS, and I like PBS,” Romney said in the debate. “I love Big Bird. I, actually, like you too,” referring to PBS moderator Jim Lehrer.

“I’m going to stop the subsidy to PBS” is a strong statement. How will he do it? And what will the campaign do now that the public broadcasting entities are waging a political lobbying campaign against Romney’s proposed cuts?

We at AIM ran up against this lobbying power in 2005 when we commenced an effort to educate members of Congress on the need to eliminate the subsidies. “AIM urges George Soros, Ted Turner and other liberal elites to step forward and take American taxpayers off the hook for the $400 million being spent annually on public broadcasting,” we said at the time.

In fact, Soros did contribute $1.8 million to National Public Radio in 2010 but the federal funding has also continued.

Government should never directly fund any means of public media. Hell, they already have several networks lying for all they are worth for any democrat seeking to gain or retain office without any money officially changing hands at the federal level. Some of them even regularly state on camera how much they love their dear leader. Chris Mathews even gets thrills running up his leg without public funding. Why on Earth would they double down by paying another one on the books? Bunch of communist propaganda-tards.

"God forbid we should ever be 20 years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, & always, well informed... If they remain quiet under such misconceptions it is a lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty... Let them take arms... What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. " - Thomas Jefferson in 1787

this was a press release from barney frank.

romney is either extremely uninforumed or blowing smoke, who knows which one.

banks' control lending and qualifications for loans. when they raise the requirements, the amount of lending decreases. when banks engage in proprietary trading and earn a good income from that, why should they increase the lending to the community, since it pays less?

i heard another claim by romney - that Dodd Frank causes community banks to suffer. i see nothing in dodd frank that causes this. community banks are doing better now, i think. the community banks are less exposed to risky assets such as derivatives, currency trading, and proprietary trading in the stock market, unlike the international banks.

who made $ when the economy was tanking? it was the banks, of course.

[link to www.politifact.com]

"Fifteen years ago, the assets of the six largest banks in this country totaled 17 percent of GDP ... The assets of the six largest banks in the United States today total 63 percent of GDP."
Sherrod Brown on Sunday, April 25th, 2010 in an interview on "This Week."


this would cause the banks to become predatory in search of profit and reduce their risk by shifting it to the other party. where would they get their profit? from you and me.
