comes from taxpayers?
As Republican lawmakers lead the charge to cut off public funding to National Public Radio, which has been under fire ever since it sacked Juan Williams last month, the network insists it gets no more than 3 percent of its total budget from taxpayers.
But one analyst has argued that NPR’s $166 million budget is actually made up of more than 25 percent of taxpayer dollars and that its member stations across the country haul in another 40 percent of public funds.
An interesting finding. Go to the source to find out how Browning reached his conclusion and NPR’s argument against it. Whatever the amount it should be axed in light of the actions NPR took last month.
