Save Public Television From Trump Attack

Target: Donald Trump, President of the United States

Goal: Oppose cutting funding to the Public Broadcasting Service.

The Trump administration has shown an interest in cutting funding available to PBS, or the Public Broadcasting Service. If funding is cut, this will jeopardize the educational programming available to tens of millions of American children, as well as the documentaries, live performances, and international television programs that bring cultural enrichment to countless Americans.

Trump’s administration is seeking ways to cut down over $10.5 trillion in federal spending. However, the Corporation of Public Broadcasting, of which PBS is a part, accounts for only .01 percent of yearly federal spending. Privatizing this organization and robbing it of its federal funds will not help the nation. It will hurt it tremendously.

PBS has made quality broadcasting accessible to all Americans, from those in the inner cities to those in America’s rural heartland. Trump’s willingness to cut it shows not only a continued disregard for the arts and culture, but also a disregard for the American people. PBS is an asset to our society, not a hindrance. Sign the petition and demand that the Trump administration not cut funding to PBS.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear President Trump,

Your administration has shown an interest in cutting funding to PBS. PBS is a source of educational programming for millions of Americans. Cutting its already minuscule budget will do very little to decrease national spending, and will destroy something of value.

If you gut PBC, you will prevent citizens of all ages from obtaining the quality educational and cultural programming that serves to broaden the horizons and open the minds of American citizens.  I demand that you not cut funding to public broadcasting.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Where do you people get this stuff? Maybe there should be some thought given to posting garbage without at least some kind of rational reason. Last I knew NPR was not in danger, although possibly it should be as it takes our tax money and spreads literally nothing but the liberal word!!

    • Where do you get your information? In case you didn’t take the time to read this, it is PBS, not NPR. Maybe not the reason but a possible one, to compare liberal and conservative views. Could you be a Fox News follower? I’d much rather give my tax dollars to NPR, PBS, public schools, infrastructure, justice reform,healthcare reform, etc. than bogus investigations, building a wall, tax cuts to the wealthy, corporate welfare, etc. Is that rational enough? More than stating this is simply garbage with no rational reason given.

    • Obviously you didn’t sign the petition, but still HAD to let all of us know your opinion. The hard truth is that no one cares.
