You would think they would do some homework.
I thought it was minimally funded by the gov, so I checked.
A bit less than 1% of its operating budget is government funded.

So obv just a ploy to rile the base a bit more.

Assholes.

Going after funding for NPR/PBS has been such dog whistle bullshit for so long on the right that only the stupidest of the base still get fired up about it.

Speaking of ancient dog whistles, Boebert needs a framed print of this on her wall. Not that she would know the significance. To her it's just a purty Jayzus paint'n.

when are people going to learn to accurately cover this asshole?

The whimsical and charismatic visionary has sailed through the past few months like a rising star whose ascent could not be disrupted by anything, even big mistakes that would normally cause the downfall of an icon.

His missteps seemed to be forgotten only a short time later, as his aura and his influence have become colossal.

I for one am shocked that a guy whose apparent sole reason for getting out of bed in the morning is to be a shitty twitter troll, might also not give two shits about consumer safety. SHOCKED I say!
