A Call to Action!!!!



As many of you may already know, the federal government is threatening to cut funding to PBS. The U.S. House of Representatives is set to vote on cutting 45% of federal funding to WGBH! The House may vote on these cuts as soon as June 22. These cuts will affect PBS , NPR and your local WGBH stations. If you would like to voice your opposition to these proposed cuts , there are steps you can take!!You can go here to the WGBH homepage and read more on how you can make a difference !! Thank you!!


EDITORIAL: I know that people are tired of the bickering back and forth between Democrats and Republicans, but this is just another example of how the Republicans are trying to silence the voice of truth. Republicans have accused WGBH of being a leftist, liberal station that only shows the views of one side!!This could not be further from the truth because programs like Frontline and Nova , focuses on facts.

So, if PBS is being accused of being liberally biased, then the truth must be "liberal". I have always hated being labeled as one thing or another, because it enables the labeler to put you into a group, when your views might just simply be the truth!!!Last time I checked, the truth was neither liberal, nor conservative !!!It has always been the truth!!Notice how Republicans have a problem with anything that tends to give people the truth!!This is because they want you to get your information from a Rupert Murdock owned outlet !!!Yes, it's called propaganda folks!!

I have seen these slimeballs go from accusing Cookie Monster of teaching American children to become obese, to trying to censor Postcards From Buster , when Buster visited a same sex household!!What's next, Bert and Ernie are GAY? Big Bird is a lesbian from the WNBA?What could be the problem with Reading Rainbow? Is it because Kunta Kinte can read, and is teaching others to read?

I must admit , I watch a lot of Frontline and Nova, as well as other informative programs on WGBH!!But this is not about me, this is about the millions of children who will lose out on great educational programming that has been around for years helping children to read , write, and be loving and TOLERANT of others!!!I hope Republicans are PROUD of themselves!!!! They have let the tobacco industry off the hook by some 120 BILLION dollars , during the same time that they proposed the cuts to children's educational programming!! I guess they would rather children smoke cigarettes than learn to be tolerant of ALL people!!

Update: I have just gotten late word that Republicans in some circles have come out and accused Oscar the Grouch of being a liberal bum, who is teaching American kids to be lazy and live a lifestyle of homelessness and mooch off the taxpayers!!Also, this just in, Mr. McFeeley from Mister Roger's Neighborhood has been charged with 11 counts of child molestation , and is responsible for the moral depravity of millions of children!!!And sadly, I have to mention that Republicans have arrested Barney and the Teletubbies, and are holding them indefinitely at Gitmo!!Apparently, they were charged as co-conspirators with conspiracy to conspire against the U.S. When asked about these charges, unnamed Republicans say that this in "NO WAY" has anything to do with Bush's dropping approval ratings!!Tinky Winky has issued a statement through his lawyer stating that he is neither a terrorist, nor is he gay!! The jury is still out on that one!!

What amazes me is the amount of people that don’t watch PBS or listen to NPR that are 100% against them. Many people without ever watching or listening label both organizations as being liberal/leftist funded entirely by the Federal Government. Few have any idea how NPR/PBS are funded, most think all the funding comes from the government.
The force behind all this are multi-national corporations that shows like frontline shine a spotlight on.
Diane Rehm Rocks!!! Call her sometime and accuse her of being bias, I guarantee you; you will get an ear full.

I agree totally Patches!!I couldn't believe that people were calling PBS programming "biased" until I realized just who was having a problem with it!!I peeped their game, because stations like PBS actually tell the facts and expose the truth, opposers to the truth want to label it "liberal"!!That's crap!!!Truth is truth and facts are facts!!

Sometimes I watch FOX , and I just start laughing!!!I think it's because they don't actually realize how full of bull they are!!They say these things with a straight face hoping that people will believe them!!They don't realize that only the closed minded bigots that blindly follow them actually buy into that crap!!!I don't even consider it reporting!!!It's on the same level as Jerry Springer!!

I grew up on PBS, from Sesame Street , to Frontline!!I hope people protest this attempt to suppress the truth!!

So much for No Child Left Behind. Committment to education?

"Men in authority will always think that criticism of their policies is
dangerous. They will always equate their policies with patriotism, and find
criticism subversive." - Henry Steele Commager

> So much for No Child Left Behind. Committment to education?

Kelly, I think "No Child" was designed more as a clever way to gain more military recruits. It forces schools to provide information and access of students to the military , or lose federal funding!!!It's funny how a bill that was designed to supposedly help improve the educational standards in our schools, was really designed to provide the military with access to our children!!I guess they got the "no child left behind" directly from the Marines creed of leaving no man behind in battle!!!

The Truth? You've got to be drinking the new guava-apple kool-aid.

If it were the truth, Nova would have had a show on the first bio-plasma field that we all 'allegedly' were created from, errr, evolved from.

And if FRONTLINE is the truth then why did Bush win the election, because he is the next Hitler? Because he has created a theocracy?

You should take a step back and listen to yourselves. Then maybe you would get away from earshot of Howard Deans scream.
