CPB cuts will eliminate quality programming

The Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) is an excellent example of government working in partnership with private corporations, foundations, and individual citizens.

When politicians threaten to cut the CPB, is their real intention to chastise programmers for distributing programs that offend members of the present majority?

Such pressure does not serve taxpayers who fund the corporation.

At its best, public TV can showcase the wonders of a nation that guarantees freedom of expression to all citizens.

Viewers must become more vocal in supporting a broad diversity of expression on public television so that this tax-supported corporation may live up to its potential in representing the richness of American culture. Grace Ott, Salt Lake City
