While deciding how to fund the government for the remainder of the fiscal year, House Republicans tried to zero out all funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), the nonprofit responsible for funding public media including NPR, PBS, Pacifica and more. And recently, House Republicans pass an emergency measure to defund NPR.
If the Republicans are successful, it would be a tremendous blow to the entire public interest media sector.
We cannot allow Republicans to destroy public media.
I just signed a petition telling Congress to fully fund NPR and defend public service media. You should too. Click below to take action.
