Victory

Despite a conservative uprising against public media, federal funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting survived an 11th hour deal on a spending bill to fund the government for the rest of the fiscal year.

This is a major victory for Sesame Street, Curious George, and public news coverage. The fight against corporate media monopolies and infotainment continues... Thanks so much to the thousands who took action!

Republican extremists in Congress have spent months refusing to address the important issues facing our country, deciding to focus instead on the demands of the Tea Party.

Now they’re trying to defund Sesame Street, Curious George, and public news coverage. While these cuts – a full funding repeal to both National Public Radio and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting – won’t have an impact on our budget deficits, they will hurt quality programming and cripple a crucial public service.

Join Senate Democrats today in the fight against Republican extremism. Stand up for NPR and PBS before it’s too late.
