      Hi,

      You know that email petition that keeps circulating
      about how Congress is slashing funding for NPR and
      PBS? Well, now it's actually true. (Really. Check at
      the bottom if you don't believe me.)

      Sign the petition telling Congress to save NPR and
      PBS:

      http://www.moveon.org/publicbroadcasting/

      A House panel has voted to eliminate all public
      funding for NPR and PBS, starting with "Sesame
      Street," "Reading Rainbow," and other commercial-free
      children's shows. If approved, this would be the most
      severe cut in the history of public broadcasting,
      threatening to pull the plug on Big Bird, Cookie
      Monster, and Oscar the Grouch.

      The cuts would slash 25% of the federal funding this
      year—$100 million—and end funding altogether within
      two years. The loss could kill beloved children's
      shows like "Clifford the Big Red Dog," "Arthur," and
      "Postcards from Buster." Rural stations and those
      serving low-income communities might not survive.
      Other stations would have to increase corporate
      sponsorships.

      Already, 300,000 people have signed the petition. Can
      you help us reach 400,000 signatures today?

      Thanks!

      P.S. Read the Washington Post report on the threat to
      NPR and PBS at:
