ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Though the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) produces some good programs, a reason to kill its federal subsidy is that politically, it is nothing more than a taxpayer-subsidized broadcast network for the Democratic National Committee.

Seldom do conservative personalities appear on PBS or National Public Radio, and there are no conservative programs. The programs promote one side - the left’s side. When conservatives do appear on talk shows, they are tokens, and they are always outnumbered three, four or five to one. The Republicans could have addressed this when they were in power, but they dropped the ball.

In that vein, the Republicans still haven’t figured out that it is not a good idea to have debates in which “moderators” are drawn only from major networks and/or PBS. There are no conservative journalists to ask Democratic candidates the hard questions they always ask of the Republicans.
