PBS to conservative blogger: Help us. Conservative blogger to PBS: Buzz off

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 1, 2010 02:54 PM

The following e-mail arrived in my mailbox this morning from taxpayer-supported PBS — home of Obama sycophant and drool bucket-carrier David Brooks and Palin-basher/Obama cheerleader Gwen Ifill.

Yep, the government media that has spent the last two years promoting the progressive agenda and sought a $550 million taxpayer bailout to push social justice activism now wants conservative bloggers to help publicize their election night coverage.


I wanted to send out a note to invite you to participate – even embed – the PBS NewsHour’s online-only live show tomorrow night (starting at 10 p.m. EST). It’s the first time we have done a broadcast-style show (complete with legendary political columnists Mark Shields & David Brooks) wholly online – and we’re hoping to make it a big success. All you have to do is grab our embed code (below or via http://ustream.tv/pbsnewshour) and add it to your site, wherever you typically place political coverage. Host your own NewsHour – on your homepage – and join the conversation. For a full rundown of our multi-platform, election-night plans, click here.

On Facebook? You can add the tab to your page too – just follow the instructions below.

Thank you so much for your consideration. Even if you can’t embed, join the conversation Election Night – we’ll be liveblogging from 5:45 p.m. EST until the wee hours of the morning. Check it out at: http://newshour.pbs.org.

Please feel free to call or e-mail with any questions.

Communications Assistant

Dear PBS: Please buzz off.

We don’t need no stinkin’ state-sponsored media — and we certainly don’t need any Left and Left-er “legendary political columnists” telling us about the grass-roots electoral revolution they’ve ignored, derided, and demonized for the past two years.

Recent: Free the Taxpayers: Defund State-Sponsored Media

Thomas Jefferson famously opined: β€œTo compel a man to furnish funds for the propagation of ideas he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.” NPR and PBS have no problem raising money from corporations and left-wing philanthropists, including billionaire George Soros, whose Open Society Institute just gave $1.8 million to pay for at least 100 journalists at NPR member radio stations in all 50 states over the next three years.

Not one more red cent of public money should go to NPR, PBS and CPB. Let the speech-squelching progressives and jihadi-whitewashing apologists pay for their own propaganda. Free the taxpayers!
