Public radio gets a ton of private funding and I'm sure they'll get more. Why shouldn't they go bare bones like other public entities have to? I highly doubt NPR or PBS are going anywhere and if they do, it would be because of poor budget management and not because they lost public funding. Also, I believe NPR should have a line on our federal tax forms. People who want to donate to them can check the box and write in how much they want to pay. Since I choose not to use NPR/PBS/OPB I shouldn't have to pay for them with my tax dollars.
