The radio network has found itself come under political pressure from Republicans in Congress, who proposed defunding NPR through cuts to the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. GOP figures called for such cuts after NPR fired longtime commentator Juan Williams over remarks he had made on Fox News regarding stereotypes of Muslims.

Personally, I don't see anything alll that beneficial about gov't funded radio, nor is it a true or "essential tool of democracy". Puhlease. http://www.freesmileys.org/smileys.php ][img ]http://www.freesmileys.org/smileys/smiley-confused002.gif[/img ]
