Going after funding for PBS, NPR and National Endowment for the Arts is a purely political move and not one meant to make the government more fiscally sound.
There are better things he could be directing his attention towards if he had budgetary concerns.
I agree. I don't think we should be funding that stuff at the federal level, but I do think it is wrong politically to go after them in such a huge way. This is why I'd prefer an across the board cut so that everyone has some skin in the game.
unfortunately the poor seldom use those services. They don't often visit museums and struggling to make ends meet doesn't leave much time for tv even if it's educational.

because the poor have money to fund access to knowledge. Right on.

If people want those services they can step up their donations and keep them on the air.
