PBS and NPR are two of the only sources of unbiased and fair and balanced reporting of news, cultural affairs, current events, politics, science, etc. that we have on the broadcast airwaves in the United States. Many people rely on these entities to provide clear and concise coverage of all sides of issues critical to their communities, the nation, the planet, and them as individuals.
NPR and PBS are beholden to no one but the US citizens and represent a ray of hope in a sea of incomplete, poor and outright false news reporting. These national treasures must be supported if our experiment in Democracy is to succeed.
I will support Public Media because it is WAY more trustworthy and broad sighted than private, for profit, stations.
Public television and radio are necessary for a free society. I support 2 tv stations & 3 public radio stations.
I am a proud support of both NPR and NET. These services provide a vital source of news and information to the general public. In this time of extreme polarization the nation needs the services.
Please join with people like me who support these necessary services by your votes.
I’ve already called in a generous contribution to my public TV station here in New Jersey. I support public media for many reasons:
1. They have the highest-quality programming.
2. Their news programs focus on news, not entertainment, with good, unbiased coverage.
3. They are free from annoying, numerous and lengthy commercial “breaks” that spoil commercial stations.
I resolve to tell other about the high quality information on public media like NPR, to continue to listen and educate myself about current events, and support unbiased discourse. Thanks public media for all you do!
I love my public radio station. It keeps me company while I paint and work. It is informative and fun but also deeply community centered. We only have one public radio station for all of Montana, and it’s not above announcing the description of a lost dog in a small town!
I listen mostly in the form of podcasts, but it’s still important for me to pledge, and likewise I want to take time to ensure that funding is not cut from other sources. On the Media is one of the most important podcasts I listen to. It’s a great counterpoint to the too-brief, not-really-analyzed news we so often get.
I resolve to pledge some funds and to write to congress about keeping funding for music and PBS stations. I use both all the time.
I resolve to do whatever I can to protect the one source of news that is trustworthy. I support public radio and public television, for they truly safeguard the constitution.
A democracy depends on an informed and reasoning population. I resolve to protect my public radio because public stations work hard to give unbiased information, offer civil discussions featuring multiple points of view about important issues, foster critical thinking, and inform the public about events worldwide.
