Here in southern Oregon we have several radio stations that are connected to National Public Radio (NPR). There are also 3 TV channels run by Oregon Public Broadcasting (OPB and PBS). These entities are controlled by far left people. They are completely biased against Conservatives and make NO attempt at fairness. Of course, I seldom watch or listen to their political blather. I am sure that you all are aware of their interminable money grubathons. If I felt that they were fair minded I might support them. But I refuse to feed tha hand that bites me! As I surf the various channels that my cable system offers, I often run across one wacko left wing program called "Democracy Now." It is moderated by a very ugly woman (I'll bet she never roped in a man) that spews out all kinds of stuff that I din't care for. The minute I come across this program I push the button to move on. And, of course they give lefty Bill Maher a forum. But nothing even remotely Conservative. I have heard that one of their talking (pin) heads says that the First Amendment Freedom of Speech only applies to "Rational Discourse." So-called "rational discourse" doesn't need protection. The First Amendment guarantees that EVERYBODY has the Right to say and believe what he wants! One thing that really iritates me is that some of our tax dollars go to these Socialistic lefties. I don't know how our elected representatives can waste any of our money on NPR and OPB-PBS claptrap when the economy is so bad. If our government has so much money that they have to throw it away, I'll take some, too! And, today the left (including public radio and TV) wants to exterminate Coservative talk radio. That way, as Hitler did, they will control everything that the American citizens (I think that the consider us to be slaves) can hear!
