Public Media is under attack! News reports indicate the new Administration wants to defund arts and public media, including the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. There are also two bills in the House of Representatives to defund NPR and the CPB to provide more money to the military.
We all have to stand up to protect public media. Go to our Protect our Public Media page for more information and ways you can help KPOV protect public media.
