Big Damn Heroes

Support public broadcasting

From an email my sister recently sent around:

The vote to eliminate all federal funding for public broadcasting is scheduled to happen today (Friday, Feb. 18).

Public radio and television and their support organizations have organized a web site to keep you informed on the issue. If you so choose, you will be able to let lawmakers know how you feel about public broadcasting. The web site will call on you to share your views when it will be most effective to do so.
This web site is not a fundraising effort. You will not be solicited by the site.
Public broadcasting's official site for keeping up with the latest developments on this issue is http://www.170millionamericans.org. Public Broadcasting reaches 170 million Americans through programming , forums, outreach and educational projects.

Thanks so much for expressing your opinions on public broadcasting!


I am always frustrated when efforts like this arise. The nation needs a public voice, for news, education, and culture.
