You should be ashamed of your yourself...the concept of "the public interest" is best expressed here:
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
Yes, that is an outstanding way to express the concept of public interest.

What I SAID was "'Public interest'...Hitler's favorite words".

They were.

Don't twist MY words, bub.

NPR is an independent, private, nonprofit membership organization funded through its own service-generating activities - pledge drives, memberships, donations, foundation grants and semi-commercials.
You left out an important word at the end of that last sentence:

Now.

They used to get quite a bit of tax money.

You forgot to mention that they extort money out of other radio stations in order to stay afloat.

You also forgot to mention that many NPR stations use public
facilities. A lot of them on state campuses.

State campuses and other public facilities rely on tax dollars quite a bit.

It's a shell game to say that they receive no tax benefits, because they do. And they shouldn't.

Frank.....your statement is very misleading! you purposely leave out important facts, such as, some of those grants are State government grants. Then there are the other government funds budgeted for NPR. Pretty typical of you lib's....Obama does the same sort of thing with obamacare!!

Extortion? You mean the fees that stations pay for use of NPR programs? NPR is a production company..they own no stations. Only a tiny fraction of public radio stations are on "state campuses." And those stations must obtain their programs from some source, whether a program service such as NPR or produce the shows themselves. So if you don't want anyone to be reimbursed for supplying programming to public stations, you either entirely oppose the idea of the existence of public radio, or you just don't think NPR should be one of the choices of program suppliers that public stations can choose from. In that case you are attempting to censor content you don't agree with, which is what the right wing radio hosts falsely claim is Obama's agenda.

Obama and the left are racist. The cop and the marxist is just one. Obamas big armed wife said in Ohio for the first time she was glade to be American, Obama talks of takeing away and giveing to others. Obamas czars from Van Jones to all of the others from child gay MAMBA to flat out racist and marxist staments show the left is the party of hate, lies, race and commieeeees.

The DNC is the party of lies.

Remember who Obozo is and who his freinds are. Be careful to observe what they stand for. You will not approve, unless you are a communist like Van Jones.
