If this is the wrong forum, let me know; I’m not normally much of an activist, but so many people here have spoken out about how PBS has touched their lives through shows such as Sesame Street and Nova that I thought it a good place to rally some folks.
The Basics: On Saturday, February 19th, the House of Representatives voted 235-189 to pass a continuing resolution that eliminates funding for public broadcasting.
While I’m not certain whether the station would disappear entirely…I’m sure it can provide it’s own funding, can’t it?..I don’t think I want to take that chance.
Here’s a graphic put together by someone showing a few facts about PBS to help rally folk: http://pics.blameitonthevoices.com/02201/small_why%20save%20pbs.jpg
And here’s where you can send a simple, already prepared email to let the government know that yes, you have valued PBS, in one way or another, at one time or another. [[LINK REMOVED]]
I really hope PBS sticks around, one way or another.
Thank you for your time.
