‘We finally won something’

Someone at my office said the comment above referring to the change-of-heart
the House had on funding for the CPB. No, we didn’t: we kept a radical
plot that the conservative movement has been talking about for years
from passing. Now, lets talk about firing Tomlinson
(which a few organizations are), re-hiring Bill Moyers to do NOW – or
at least returning that program to the 1-hour format (the cause of this
whole flap if you remember), getting rid of the Wall Street Editorial
Board show (they have a major paper as a pulpit and don’t deserve to
use public money to shout louder) and perhaps, you know, double funding
for public broadcasting. To the naysayers, three letters: BBC.
