    That's an opinion column from David Boaz with my favorite think tank, the Cato Institute. Cnn.com has posts opinion columns, too.

    So what's your point?

    Without reading the entire article yet I can say that I am in 100% favor of cutting off the taxpayer dollars flowing to National Public Radio and the Public Broadcasting System!

    Me, too, Jonathan. I believe as David Boaz does in the separation of news and
    State. [​IMG]

    Yes, they certainly are "fair and balanced" on their views page, with such "insightful" articles like this one from the CATO Institute and the Heritage Foundation......

    :rolleyes:

    We can agree to disagree, but I am interested in hearing your reasons why you believe the US taxpayers should fund television and radio stations. [​IMG]

    Why aren't you criticizing CNN.com for publishing opinion articles, BiR? Looks like selective outrage on your part.

    Yeah, you want me to pay to promote your centralist ideology.

    I'd have to agree with you and Ken on this one.

    Easy answer Ken: I don't go to cnn.com for anything. The only time I have ever visited cnn is when there is a link on Matt Drudge's website. What exactly is your point? I know that I didn't say anything about cnn in either my initial post, or my reply to you.........

    Thanks for proving my point, BiR. This is just selective outrage on your part. You simply bash anyone and any organization opposed to your centralist ideology.

    Funding the miltary is constitutional. Giving taxpayer money to PBS is unconstitutional.

    Ah yes, the as-to-be-expected abject fatuity.
    Exactly how does this tie into my "centralist ideology," Ken?

    Perhaps you didn't understand what I wrote, so in the interest of fairness, I will amplify:

    1. I don't ever visit cnn.com, except when Matt Drudge puts a link to a story on the drudgereport.com. I will explain that. Matt Drudge actually has a website, with several links to stories that he feels might be interesting to his visitors. When you click on the link, it actually takes you to the website where the story is located. So, in other words, I only go to cnn.com when there is a link - I don't actually type in www.cnn.com. I type in www.drudgereport.com.

    2. I love how they are using your tax dollars to fund my "centralist ideology," yet if I am opposed to something, I don't really have a valid point. I guess that only you and the like-minded folks at the CATO Institute have a valid viewpoint. So, stated differently, if I don't share your ideology, I should simply stop complaining. How much more money is being spent on the war on Iraq [By the way, Johnv, we attacked them, remember?] and how much is being spent on the CPB?

    I couldn't help but notice that twice you have referenced my "centralist ideology." Typing something in perpetuity tends to make one look as though they are parroting someone else. As an aside, I think I heard Walt Williams use that term on the Limbaugh show today, but cannot remember if I did. So what am I, Ken - a LIBERAL or a Centralist?

    Huh? Are you sure you were rebutting me? I never said anything about who attacked whom.

    Actually, my use of the term comes from this -

    So, are you admitting to parroting DiLorenzo?
