Trump To Defund NPR

Donald Trump’s newly-proposed 2019 budget includes an end to federal funding of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, which provides funding for PBS and NPR. The proposal will slowly eliminate the funding to the institutions over a two year period, with its logic being that the CPB only offers a small part of the funding for PBS and NPR through grants, while the rest comes from private donations. CPB President Patricia Harrison says: “We will work with the new administration and Congress in raising awareness that elimination of federal funding to CPB begins the collapse of the public media system.”
