You can't help those who won't help themselves
So once again PBS is fighting for its political life. Boo hoo.
For decades both National Public Radio, the NewsHour, Charlie Rose, Washington Week, and the rest of PBS public affairs programming has acted as meme laundries for right wing stink tanks.
They recycled every false charge against the Clintons, sneered at counting the votes in Florida in 2000 and Ohio in 2004, and have generally boosted the right at every opportunity. And now they are reaping the harvest.
The loss of PBS programming would be a serious blow to this country. But really, you can't help those who will not help themselves.
