Losing "Big Bird"

NBC's Lisa Myers on the March 9 Nightly News. Said that defunding NPR (of about 2% of its funding) would cause us to “lose Big Bird.” I say that’s okay. If Big Bird can’t survive on its own in the marketplace without federal funding, it deserves to die.

LOSING GOVERNMENT RADIO: That’s where most of the federal funding goes. To support public radio. As I say above, if it can’t survive in the free market, it doesn’t deserve to survive. We don’t need government-controlled public radio. We have too much free market radio. If people want to hear liberal crap, they should be willing to pay for it by buying from sponsors.

“JUDGE US BY OUR PRODUCT: NPR's Nina Totenberg says, “There is a reason that we are the only news organization, other than Fox, with a growing audience. It is because of our product which is straight-shooting, factual, and spends an enormous amount of money gathering news from all over the country and the world. Judge us by our product.” Oh, I HAVE “judged them by their product, and it does not resemble what she says about it. They lie, and promote the “government line.”

“REMOVING KHADDAFFI NOT AN OPTION:” That’s what Obama’s generals are saying, and I believe it. It sounds like Obama. My question is this: if we’re not trying to “take out” Khaddaffi, why are we involved at all? The goal of war it to WIN. If Khaddaffi stays, we’ve LOST! This shows complete lack of leadership on Obama’s part.

NOT COVERED: The news media writes stupid and lying stories about Glenn Beck as if it were news. But when a group including Richard Trumka, CEO of the AFL-CIO UNION discusses a plot to destroy the economy of this nation, not a peep out of the press. Do they WANT to destroy this country? Never go by what people SAY. Go by what they DO. And the news media DOES things that scare the hell me.

“GLENN BECK’S CRAZY! That’s what they say about Glenn Beck all the time. But there’s not a peep out of the liberal news media when he’s proven right, which is often. He said to “buy gold” when it was at $700 an ounce and they said he was crazy. Gold is now selling for more than $1400.00 an ounce and still rising. He has predicted many things, while HOPING he will be wrong—and he has been right much more often than he’s been wrong. Maybe people should listen to him and then do their own research, as he suggests.
