Action Alert: MoveOn petition to save NPR/PBS

MoveOn launched a petition last week in the hopes of collecting 500,000 signatures stating opposition to the GOP attempts to reshape public broadcasting into another right-wing propaganda source, or failing that, destroy it. Let's face it-- PBS' Now and Frontline are just about the only credible news sources left of broadcast television. And do we really need to hear Grover singing songs about the End Times?

The good news from MoveOn is that their initial goal of 500,000 has become a goal of 1,000,000. That's because they've gathered over 800,000 signatures. Let's keep it up. The fight is on, and this is a battle with both fundamentalist Christians and right-wing corporate moguls.

Sign up. Pass it on.
