commented on The Morning News: Trump's Budget Plan, a Frozen Travel Ban, and an Evicted Local Activist
Most opposition to public broadcasting seems to come from cranks in the cities who have cable. In rural areas people don't have reliable broadband and cable is not available outside the bigger cities and towns. Sure, you can get a satellite dish or something, but that can be pricey for a lot of rural folks, So public broadcasting is a great service to them.
The poor and the rural are really getting shafted in this proposed budget: cuts to medicaid, cuts to transportation (both rail and air) and now cuts to media. But they're the ones who vote for these frauds.
