Everyone expected House Republicans to give up efforts to kill NPR and
PBS after a massive public outcry stopped them last year. But they’ve
just voted to eliminate funding for NPR and PBS — unbelievably,
starting with programs like “Sesame Street.”

Public broadcasting would lose nearly a quarter of its federal funding
this year. Even worse, all funding would be eliminated in two
years–threatening one of the last remaining sources of watchdog journalism.

Sign the petition telling Congress to save NPR and PBS again this year:


Last year, millions of us took action to save NPR and PBS, and Congress
listened. We can do it again if enough of us sign the petition in time.

This would be the most severe cut in the history of public broadcasting.
The Boston Globe reports the cuts “could force the elimination of some
popular PBS and NPR programs.” NPR’s president expects rural public
radio stations may be forced to shut down.

The House and Senate are deciding if public broadcasting will survive,
and they need to hear from viewers like you. Sign the petition at:
