Responding to front-running Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s assertion that he would end federal funding for PBS, network President Paula Kerger said Wednesday that any such blanket defunding would make it “impossible” for PBS to continue its mission.
That mission: to brainwash Americans into embracing moonbattery. Naturally Obama promises more government funding.
According to Kerger, without coercive financing — i.e., stealing money from people who have no use for PBS and may even actively hate it for spewing corrosive left-wing propaganda — numbers just won’t add up. The creative destruction of the free market would free up a channel on your cable dial for programming people like enough to pay for with their own money, rather than someone else’s. Score another point for the free market.
