PBS/NPR become annoying beggars

PBS host Bill Moyers. Screenshot via PBS.

 

They’re making us squirm for their programming, more, and more… and more often. They hound us for it.


They keep back their most entertaining material for their PBS prayer meetings, where they pass the basket to the congregation, and it goes on day after day. They hector the public directly for contributions, on the air and in the mail box; they endlessly badger us for cash. They wheedle and flatter–yes, they flatter, telling us we’re so clever, so righteous to fight for them!–and they pay celebrities to come on the show and wheedle and flatter and cozen us for more, more, more money. Despite claiming they’re commercial free, the advertisements from sponsors are there–they’re tasteful and understated… but they’re advertising.
