the Obama regime thinks it is a good idea to not only stand by NPR, but propose an increase in funding for the next fiscal year.

When questioned about the proposed increase, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney defended the position as "worthwhile" and that it was an "important priority for the Obama administration."

This must be what our Community Organizer-in-Chief focuses on between rounds of golf and glitzy parties. The economy? Nope. The Middle East? It can wait. NPR Funding? Make this priority number one!

I have no problem with anyone saying that NPR should be unfunded. If we are going to be serious about cutting costs, I won't argue with that statement. But why should it go under. Because they don't agree with your viewpoint. Way to promote democracy.

It wont go under. The feds funding is a very small portion of what they take in, they'll be just fine. Although I will say, I don't believe for a minute that the CONgress will defund NPR anyway, at least not permanantly. Remember Acorn? defunded for a month, then back to business as usual. NPR will be no different.
