Funding PBS

An argument against the existence of PBS:
An unconscious people, an indoctrinated people, a people fed only partisan information and opinion that confirm their own bias, a people made morbidly obese in mind and spirit by the junk food of propaganda, is less inclined to put up a fight, ask questions and be skeptical. And just as a democracy can die of too many lies, that kind of orthodoxy can kill us, too.
This quote comes from Bill Moyers, who, strangely, thought it was an argument in favor of government-run news broadcasting.
