Conservatives have waited a long time, though numerous Republican administrations to finally see the PBS budget cut. –Markdb

The liberal media have always had an advantage over conservative media because of their billions of dollars in taxpayer subsidies. But now, if the Trump administration has its way with the budget, the liberal media may be reduced significantly in size. “Public Radio and Television Stations Face New Threat of Budget Cuts” is the headline over a Wall Street Journal article about proposed Trump administration budget cuts to the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and public broadcasting. These cuts “are being considered to offset the Trump administration’s proposed increase in defense spending,” the paper said.Almost $13 billion has been spent by Congress on the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) since 1969.The Heritage Foundation’s “Blueprint for Balance: A Federal Budget for 2017,” proposes the complete elimination of the CPB, saving the taxpayers $445 million in fiscal year 2017. The CPB funds public radio and TV.

A magazine ranked all 50 states. How did North Carolina do?

 North Carolina, Politics, UnionGOP  Comments Off on A magazine ranked all 50 states. How did North Carolina do?
Mar 122017
A U.S. News and World Report study finds NC is in the middle of states on key measures.
…Republicans, who controlled the legislature and governorship the past four years, can note how highly North Carolina government is rated. The Tar Heel State was ranked the fourth best in the country in government, with the report citing the state’s high credit rating, its pension funding, transparency and integrity. North Carolina stood out in the report – among the top 10 states – in such categories as mental health, four-year college graduation rate, college tuition and fees, pre-K quality, level of juvenile incarceration, parole completion, and gender equality.
Here is a link to read the full report without the News & Observer liberal slant
