PBS Weighs in on Proposed Cuts for CPB

Posted on February 16, 2011



ITVS continues to support the grassroots effort rallying behind Public Television. As we pointed out last week, more than 170 million Americans rely on some form of public media each month. Just yesterday on the blog, BTB teamed up with our public media partner, PBS NEWSHOUR to highlight filmmakers and journalists covering events on-the-ground in Egypt and placing them into context in American classrooms. Conversations like those are a product of public media. Recently, PBS weighed in on the House Appropriations Committee’s proposed elimination of funding for CPB. Watch the video from PBS President & CEO Paula Kerger.
