Obama: Makes No Sense to Defund Public Broadcasting

If the same amount of taxpayer dollars were going to Fox News, would it be considered such a meaningless pittance?

President Obama defended public broadcasting from cuts on Friday, emphasizing that defunding networks like NPR and PBS would do little to rein in spending.
[...]
“I think it’s going to be important for us to have a conversation after we get the short-term budget done, about how do we really tackle the problem in a comprehensive way,” Obama said at a press conference on Friday.

“And that means not just going after Head Start or Corporation for Public Broadcasting. That’s not where the money is,” he added.

It could be a moot point. As Doug Ross points out, if James O’Keefe continues at this pace, de-funding NPR won’t be necessary because it won’t have any employees left.
