Bush to Try Cutting NPR and PBS, AGAIN!

pbs_npr.jpg
My friend, Edward just e-mailed me about this:

President Bush just proposed drastic cuts to NPR and PBS. We’ve stopped similar cuts in the past, but enough is enough: With the new Congress, we can make
sure this never happens again.

We need Congress to save NPR and PBS once and for all.

Can you help out by signing this petition to Congress? It’s really easy—just click the link below:

Help Save PBS & NPR Now!

Thanks!

  1. “This will be the third petition for this I’ve signed over the past two years.”

    Howard, were the last two petitions, perhaps, this one?

    That was an urban legend that continues to circulate a decade later. This new petition may be relevant (URL below), but it’s unclear. The petition was drafted and posted on moveon.org last summer, when Republicans controlled congress. That was before the election. Has anyone bothered to verify that this is still an issue with the current Democratically-controlled congress? We need a status update.

  2. Umm, John… While it says your first link is false… The second link to snopes says it’s true. I have signed the other two petitions as well… and they have both been for NPR and PBS, not Sesame Street.

    UPDATE: from MoveOn.org… They received 370,017 signatures in 36 hours! Let’s keep it going! They are now aiming for 500k signatures!
