The Corporation for Public Broadcasting which feeds that organization formally known as National Public Radio, that is. Read Andrew McCarthy's piece over at NRO. I am tired of having been lectured by the likes of Bill Moyers, Tina Totenberg, and Daniel Schorr on the taxpayer dime over the years and the time is long past to cut CPB and NPR loose.

America does not have a "Ministry of Information" and so I don't know what public purpose the Corporation for Public Broadcasting serves, beyond serving as some sort of would be erudite programming source, patronized by liberal whites.

If NPR serves such a vital public interest, then let the tender sympathies of the market determine its worth. With luck, Nina Totenberg might make Juan Williams new salary at Fox. But I doubt it.

If the coming Republican majority can't defund NPR, then I propose the next appropriations bill include a rider to hire "Bagdad Bob" as its new mouthpiece, so the veneer of objectivity can be stripped off.
