MRC’s Brent Bozell Praises Trump for Budget Ending Taxpayer Funding to Public Broadcasting

March 16th, 2017 5:06 PM

Reston, Virginia — Late Thursday afternoon, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell released the following statement regarding President Donald Trump’s budget proposal, including the decision to defund the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB):

This is fantastic news. There is absolutely no reason for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) to receive taxpayer funding. I have long opposed taxpayer subsidization of public broadcasting because it’s not the federal government’s business to prop up media entities with taxpayer money. There are plenty of leftwing billionaires who could help fund the liberal propaganda coming from CPB. Now it’s time for Congress to follow through and eliminate CPB’s funding once and for all.
