    ls to get Congress to enact rules that help insulate the CPB/PBS/NPR from conservative threats to cut the funding.  

    You see or hear Newt Gingrich on there, even when he has some really absurd garbage to sell.  That is because they are obligated to kiss the Godfather's ring.  When he was speaker he ran a very aggressive and nearly successful campaign to eliminate NPR and PBS.  That threat is still there, and anytime in the future people like Palin get into a majority status, it could become more than a threat.

    If you really want to see a more independent NPR and PBS, then you should push for ways to insulate this media operation from reprisals while there is a chance to do so.  

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