ALG Requests Equal Time on Public Broadcasting Stations Urging Defunding of the Corp. for Public Broadcasting

March 24th, 2011, Fairfax, VA—Americans for Limited Government (ALG) President Bill Wilson today demanded that the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) give equal time for an advertisement urging that Congress defund public broadcasting.

"The debate over taxpayer funding of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting has clearly reached a level where disparate opposing points of view should be allowed on stations that receive taxpayer dollars to fund programming," Wilson wrote in his letter to the CPB.

The letter cites ads that have been run by the CPB: "Currently, television stations that receive taxpayer funds through the CPB, including WETA which broadcasts in the Washington, DC area, are posting a video clip on their website called 'Let Congress Know How You Feel' extolling the virtues of public broadcasting and encouraging viewers to contact their Congressmen."

ALG has in turn requested equal air time, free of any cost, with a 30-second video, "ALG Wants You To Help Defund Public Broadcasting".

Wilson noted that the Public Broadcasting Act of 1967 requires that the CPB operate with a "strict adherence to objectivity and balance in all programs or series of programs of a controversial nature."

The letter concluded, "Public broadcasting advocates have loudly proclaimed that you provide a balanced voice for those who otherwise would not have their message heard, now it is time to prove it by running this 30-second piece that balances the position that you are already articulating."
