John Stossel: Cut Off Government PBS Funding

Republicans should stop dithering about reducing subsidies to the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, newsman John Stossel says.

His advice: Eliminate government funding of PBS altogether.

Stossel, co-anchor of ABC News' "20/20," writes in his recent syndicated column that "public broadcasting is a classic example of welfare for the well-off. We PBS viewers are 44 percent more likely than other Americans to make more than $150,000 a year.

"I enjoy PBS, but it hardly seems fair that the government demands you buy it for me."

I heard it affected his hearing but I'm wondering if it got more mental than that.

5. I won't go quite that far, but I wish ABC would
dump him. He sounds just right for FOX.
