Rep. Earl Blumenauer, D-Oregon, 3rd District, Portland speaks out in defense of public broadcasting - and the real losers - on February 11, 2011.


"I fear this reckless partisan assault on public broadcasting will actually hurt our longterm efforts to tame the deficient," he said. "It would mean the loss of a valuable tool to educate and inform the public through a respected and nonpartisan source. This is exactly how to get information to the public on how to deal with the massive deficit problems that we face." He added that efforts to extinguish funding "are attacking one of America’s best public-private partnerships." - Current.org

Rep. Bill Owens, D-NY, 23rd District, also speaks on the House floor against proposed cuts to Public Broadcasting.


"When you talk about rural, I represent rural...and public broadcasting is extrordinarily important to each and everyone of my constituents."
