National Public Radio is almost entirely supported by donations-getting only 2% of it's annual budget from taxpayer subsidies like the national endowments for the Arts which Republicans have screamed about for decades. Since 1967 Republicans have been trying to eliminate publicly funded entities like NPR and PBS but have failed. This latest attempt is just another bully tactic to throw their weight around before an upcoming election.

The look-at-me opportunists like Palin-Boehner-Canter-Malkin-and Huckabee to name a few- are clamoring for the spot light in the modern day Inquisition. While the witless followers of the right are harassing NPR and PBS with threatening e-mails phone calls and bomb threats.
These went ignored and when attempts were made to get congress to pull Limbaugh off Armed Forces Radio congressional Republicans responded by drafting a resolution supporting Limbaugh. "commending [his] relentless efforts to build and maintain troop moral through worldwide radio broad casts and personal visits to conflict regions."
The fact that Limbaugh and Armed Forces Radio gets a pass when it comes to de-funding clearly shows the right wing's hypocracy. What is good for the goose is only good for the goose-so screw the gander .
With the geese in charge we would have a lot less choices. The geese would decide what we could watch and listen to and Fox News would be the only approved voice and the only source for information affordable to low income people-the ganders.
