This is an issue I've been running into lately, its about National Public Radio. Some people seem to have an issue that around 7% of its budget is from a federal grant. I find NPR to be the best news radio network on the air, and its not just listened to in the US, its listened to online and even broadcasted in areas all over the world. But it seems like some people care about a very small grant? The question is, do you listen to NPR and enjoy it? Do you donate to NPR? If so, how much? Do you think public broadcasting is important? I love NPR. I donate about 15,000 dollars per year. I find it incredibly important to have NPR on the air, its a view into our world that even the Internet cannot match. And if you do like NPR, every dollar matters. And I feel like, while for profit networks are fine, I feel like a non profit is required. And that is why NPR I think is the best Radio Network on the air. NPR is never dull. They also cover issues all over the world that most American media refuses to. They care more about right wing people issues than actual right wing outlets do, as this picture shows us. PS: For those who do not live in America, NPR known as National Public Radio, is the best American radio network, its all over the world online, its also broadcasted in the EU as well and some parts of Asia . Its the American Version of FRANCE 24 or the BBC. Its a treasure the American people have clearly refused to give up. NPR represents and reports on Americans from every single walk of life, income, and job. And culture. They also report and talk to people all over the world. Americans by the millions all over the country listen to NPR, they are very much the American BBC, even popular overseas.
