Public Broadcasting CEO: People ‘Yearn For Content They Can Trust’

Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) President and CEO Patricia de Stacy Harrison says “people in this country yearn for content they can trust” and that’s among the reasons taxpayer funding is necessary for the organization.

On Tuesday, Harrison testified at a hearing on President Trump’s proposed cuts to public broadcasting, where she claimed the CPB is vital.

“So, people in this country yearn for content they can trust. And where are we right now? We are living in this environment of fake news,” Harrison said.

“I have kids, I have grandchildren, we are very proud of our commitment through CPB, the appropriation, to funding fact-based journalism.”

“We have a priority for editorial integrity,” Harrison added.

You are allowed to laugh now.

Fact-based journalism that includes Charlie Rose prefacing a question to Bill Clinton with, “Let’s assume that you make it to heaven.”

Editorial integrity that allows PBS host Tavis Smiley to claim there are far more Christian terrorists than Muslim ones.

Or Smiley’s fact-based stance that by not holding a confirmation vote on Merrick Garland for a Supreme Court justice seat, the GOP will reconsider the ban on slavery and the right for women to vote.

There are plenty of other examples that CPB pushes a liberal agenda over the airwaves with taxpayer dollars.

Surprisingly absent from Harrison’s “vital” reasons for continued taxpayer funding of public broadcasting, was her $434,364 salary that she made in 2015.

Wonder why she left out that vital bit of information? THAT is quite instructive to the taxpayer as to whether to remove the Federal funding for this treasury draining program.
For those that wish to support PBS, there isn’t a ting stopping you. Put your money up there in the form of a personal check.
Just don’t ask others to do that.
