Government funding for public broadcasting has recently become a subject of great debate across the country.

Below are a few stories that discuss the issue:

House Republicans Plan to Cut Aid to Public Broadcasting, Arts and Humanities Agencies HUFFINGTON POSTLATIMES

In response, public radio and television stations, national organizations, producers, viewers and listeners have collaborated to launch 170millionamericans.org. The site’s purpose – to bring attention to the large percentage of Americans that use and depend on public media every day. One of the main statements on the site clearly reflects why funding for public broadcasting should remain a priority – more than half of all Americans use public media each month.

Support for government funding for institutions like NPR and PBS will determine the future of the American media landscape. Please take a moment to visit the site and see how you can support the effort to show Congress what public media means to so many Americans.
