In light of the flap over Juan Williams, people are calling for an end to government funding for NPR and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. I would believe in ending such government funding even if NPR agreed with me on everything
. I do not see why taxpayers should be made to subsidize radio, particularly NPR, since subsidies for NPR redistribute wealth to the already wealthy
. At least we do not fund broadcasting through the same sharply regressive taxation used in some other countries.
At least we don't have the BBC which charges a mandatory licence fee of £145.50 a year.
