does anyone have a model that would work?

i do it is called fair and balanced

give both sides equal time

you are sounding very dense and contrary for the sake of being different rather than correct

I used to be an ardent supporter of public radio. I gave money for years. They talked about real news stories where government malfeasance was the issue (Iran/Contra for example). They rarely if ever challenged the Obama administration though and it was during those years it became so partisan. Now it's as if Trump can't do anything right, they're as bad as the MSM.

Then buy an antenna and get the local stations for free in HD over the invisible airwaves.

If they aren't close enough to a city, then they can get their news at the local diner who most likely has a TV.

If they don't live near a diner, can't afford cable, and arent' close enough to get reception via an antenna, something tells me that keeping up-to-date on "Sewing with Nancy" and "Sesame Street" isn't one of their high priorities in life.

Access to television programming is not a guarantee in America.

Sesame Street could fund itself on its own via merchandise and video-sales from here out. Anything that couldn't be funded by themselves could definitely be recouped via private donations.

NOVA is great--I remember being "forced" to watch some of them when I was in the GATE program in elementary school. But again, that is a program that I bet could find private funding or be bought up by any one of the myriad other educational channels that exists.

I don't watch the PBS Science show, but I'd bet that they could do the same thing.

Or here's a different approach--we could publicly fund just a few of these shows that have a history of relevancy and viewership instead of a whole channel, and we can have them air on local channels so that those with a TV antenna could get them. Or just maintain a website that can be accessed at libraries for free. Or any other myriad of things than putting so much money into channels and radio that, if we're being honest, have content and quality rivaled in free YouTube channels.

Actually ota fox does not provide a national news show daily as the other stations do.

Kinda crazy that ota all you can get is lefty newsies.

So there is no conservative news voice ota.

You gotts to pay money for such or listen to the radio programs.

The vast majority of PBS is good stuff.

I don't particularly feel the need to defund PBS over perceived or real political slights.

I am ok with trying to make it politically neutral.

I just see no need for publicly-funded TV anymore. To each their own.

NPR is pathetic. Their hosts are pathetic. Their questions are "not good questions"
But it is a good place to see where Stupid lives....
