      Subject: funding for NPR  

      On NPR's Morning Edition, Nina Tottenberg announced that if the Supreme Court supports Congress, it will, in effect, be the end of the National Public Radio (NPR), National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), and the Public Broadcasting System (PBS). PBS, NPR and the arts are facing major cutbacks in funding. In spite of the efforts of each station to reduce spending costs and streamline their services, some government officials believe that the funding currently going to these programs is too large a portion of funding for something which is seen as not worthwhile.
       
      This is for anyone  who thinks NPR/PBS is a worthwhile expenditure of $1.12/year of their taxes. The only way that our representatives can be aware of the base of support for PBS and funding for these types of programs is by making
      our voices heard. Please add your name to this list and forward it to friends who believe in what this stands for. This list will be forwarded to the President and the Vice President of the United States. This petition is being passed around the Internet. Please add your name to it so that funding can be maintained for NPR, PBS, and the NEA.
       
      HOW TO SIGN: IT'S EASY:
      First SELECT all of the text in this message, then COPY and PASTE it into a new email (DO NOT FORWARD). ADD your name to the bottom of the list and SEND it to everyone in your list.
       
      DON'T WORRY ABOUT DUPLICATES.  
      This is being sent to several people at once to add their names to the petition. It won't matter if many people receive the same list as THE NAMES ARE BEING MANAGED. If you decide not to sign, please don't kill it. Send it to the email address listed here: wein2688@...  
      If you happen to be the 150th, 200th, 250th, etc., signer of this petition, please, forward a copy to the above address. This way we can keep track of the lists and organize them. Send this to everyone you know, and help us to keep these
      programs alive. Thank you!

        Got this when I responded as number 1550.......looks like this petition is a "ghost". Actually, upon looking into this further on Snopes I saw the following. So this begs the question: If this is not a real petition, shouldn't it be?

        Coincidentally, though, in June 2005 the non-existent situation which this petition had been decrying for several years finally hit the news for real when a House subcommittee voted to sharply reduce federal financial support for public broadcasting (including funds for shows such as "Sesame Street") and to eliminate within two years all federal money for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. Whether the appropriations bill will retain the subcommittee's recommendations as it passes through Congress remains to be seen.

        PBS and NPR - Petition

        In 1995 two well-meaning but misguided students at UNC started an email petition regarding pending legislation that would affect the funding for PBS and NPR. They didn't mean to open a can of worms, but they did. The petition is still circulating on the Internet and has taken on a life of its own.

        If you have received this petition, please delete it and advise anyone within hearing distance to do the same.
