PRESIDENT TRUMP IS RIGHT: NPR, PBS NO LONGER NEED TAXPAYER FUNDING!

Tell Congress:
Defund Anti-American, Anti-Christian
Public Broadcasting Service!

President Trump's budget calls for defunding the hate-filled leftwing Communist propaganda machines known as the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) and National Public Radio (NPR).

The Democrat Party is in full spin mode attacking this worthy budget cut, but the reality is that the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) which operates these outlets is a private corporation that requires no taxpayer funding to exist!

You must speak out and demand that Congress stop funding the multimillion-dollar FOR-PROFIT enterprises of PBS and NPR. In fact, taxpayer money now only accounts for 15% of the total revenues of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.

Tell the House Budget Committee to follow through and defund the hateful Corporation for Public Broadcasting in the FY 2018 budget! These broadcasting empires have absolutely no need for American taxpayer funds.

The Corporation for Public Broadcasting is a private corporation that receives your tax dollars. Most of CPB's funding comes from contributions, gifts, grants and other donations from private individuals, wealthy left-wing billionaires and like-minded corporations -- not from the taxpayers! NPR alone rakes in $80 million per year from contributions while spending $13 million on advertising.

What are your tax dollars paying for? Here are just a few of the hateful remarks which are uttered on PBS and NPR on a daily basis and which your tax dollars subsidize:

Ted Cruz' 2016 presidential campaign was "dark and satanic." PBS host Tavis Smily says that Christian terrorists blow people up "every day" in America. NPR's foreign editor Loren Jenkins vowed to "smoke out" American troops in Afghanistan so they could be killed by the Taliban.1

For the privilege of having this "neutral" content aired on PBS and NPR, Americans pony up $445 million per year to the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.

Public broadcasting has now cut a deal with CNN/Time Warner/HBO to begin airing Sesame Street on a premium HBO channel first - before kids get to see it on PBS - through the year 2020.2

The CPB received an "undisclosed" amount of cash for this sweetheart deal! How much? The CPB is not saying because it does not want the taxpayer 'gravy train' to end! Public broadcasting has been propped up through 2020 through this deal, though, and our tax dollars are no longer needed.

By far the biggest ripoff to the taxpayers is the salaries that are paid to executives and the hateful propaganda mouthpieces on the air at PBS and NPR.3 Here are their salaries:

  • NPR CEO Jarl Mohn: $229,969
  • Chief Content Officer Wilson Kinsey: $540,420
  • Senior Host Scott Simon: $398,879
  • Senior Host Renee Montagne: $394,110
  • Senior Host Steven Inskeep: $381,441
  • PBS President Paula Kerger: $632,233
  • CPB CEO Patricia Harrison: $369,514

Disc jockeys who host daily one-hour programs on NPR are making nearly the same annual salary as the President and Vice President of the United States!

"You shall not steal" from Exodus 20:15 applies to governments just as much as it does to individuals. This is an outrageous theft and again: Taxpayer funding now only accounts for 15% of the total revenues for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. Big Bird can survive just fine without your tax dollars!

Tell Congress to cut all funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting which no longer needs taxpayer money!

Washington, D.C. 20515

Dear Chairman Black:

President Trump has called for defunding the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and I am writing in support of that worthy budget cut. The Corporation for Public Broadcasting and its propaganda mouthpieces, National Public Radio (NPR) and Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) are now massive for-profit entities and American taxpayer money only accounts for 15% of its annual revenues. I am offended that my tax dollars continue to fund these operations which do nothing but spew hatred for conservative Americans all day long.

If NPR and PBS are so concerned about staying on the air, all they will need to do at this point is cut the bloated salaries of their executives and on-air talent. Radio personalities who host one-hour shows on NPR are paid annual salaries commensurate with what the President and Vice President of the United States receive. Not bad for working an hour a day! The President of PBS rakes in $632,233 per year which has to be one of the highest taxpayer-funded salaries in the country. It is insulting to listen to these Communist mouthpieces claim that they are offering "neutral" news reporting at my expense when all they do is insult conservatives.

For example, PBS called Sen. Ted Cruz' presidential campaign in 2016 "dark and satanic." Tavis Smiley on PBS stated that Christians are the real terrorists who blow people up "every day." NPR's foreign editor promised on-air that he would "smoke out" American soldiers in Afghanistan so that the Taliban could kill them. PBS said that Americans wearing flag lapel pins after the 9-11 attacks were reminiscent of Communist China. Only a crazed leftwing zealot could view those statements as fair and balanced reporting.

I demand that you sever all ties between the US government and the for-profit Center for Public Broadcasting. This private corporation has no need of my tax dollars and has proven that it can compete admirably in the marketplace without using my money. Big Bird and Sesame Street can survive and thrive just fine without a handout from the taxpayers. Cut their funding and do it now!

The Democrat Party is in full spin mode claiming that the President and Republicans want to "kill Big Bird" from the Sesame Street program, but the reality is that Sesame Street alone is such a huge for-profit enterprise that its total revenues are UNKNOWN!

You must speak out and demand that Congress stop funding the multimillion-dollar enterprises of PBS and NPR. In fact, taxpayer money now only accounts for 15% of the total revenues of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting which runs NPR and PBS.
