Trump Budget Proposes Killing All Funding for PBS, NPR and National Endowment for the Arts

Good. The government has no business in broadcasting or in art.

I say this as one who has logged many hours watching PBS and listening to NPR. I also love the arts. In another life I wrote and produced electronic music. I still paint. I very much enjoy (what some would consider) weird mid-century artwork.

But government has no business at all in these areas. None.

(And the thing is PBS and NPR would have more good will from small government people if they had not become just total instruments of statist propaganda. At this point it’s just gotten ridiculous.)
