Should The Federal Government Support Public Broadcasting?

Cut everything. Military, agriculture, national health, education, especially medicare providers etc. Pork exists in every government agency and non-profit. For profit companies figure it out too, they cut fat. Government and non-profits are profitable for certain groups: legislatures, government suppliers, lobbyists, AND non profit executives. When KPBS started taking ads, as opposed to underwriting from foundations, it was a huge turn off and wake up call. When national and local developers, Latino Film festival, Fallbrook Art, retirement homes, private schools, Rubios, del mar fair shows start advertising this is no longer "public" broadcasting. This is private advertising funding. Why can't KPBS become a genuine private business with ethical values. We can be share holders. The amount of money PBS spends on lobbyists, executives, and the amount of income from any source should be on the website. Aljazeera is an example of private prermier work. KCRW is another, an excellent affiliate that gave PBS the finger and opted out.

Is New Chargers Stadium Worth The Investment?

Keep the stadium in Mission Valley. Let the Chargers pony up. Underground parking would allow for more infurstructure.
