    The problem with the CPB generally seems to be that they are always afraid that when Republicans get a majority in Congress, whenever that might be, that they will have to answer for not being an acceptable as an entity that has received appropriations from Congress.  

    The solution, if we are going to actually have an independent and unthreatened press, is to insulate the CPB from the whims of vengeful budget cutters.  

    We also need non-profit newspapers and TV and news services.  

    All of it needs to be funded in such a way that it is insulated from Republican vengeance.  

    The problem with the media as it is, resides in the fact that it is vulnerable to chain-yanking from the corporate sector, through advertising and through think tanks and other influence machinery.

    hope that the idiots who have no constructive and creative solutions but only look to tear down will not win the day.
