PBS Is Underfunded


PBS (Public Broadcasting Service) is a free channel in America that airs great programming on the arts, history and culture. It is also a channel of an educational nature. PBS regularly runs fundraising drives requesting public donations to keep the network afloat. It’s a shame that a channel that provides such a useful and beneficial service to the public is in need of funds.

The government wastes billions of dollars spying on Americans and foreign allies, while worthwhile causes such as PBS, have to ask the public for money to stay afloat. PBS should be given the money it needs by the government, as many young and old minds alike are being educated by the programming.
