Federal funds would no longer support National Public Radio or the Public Broadcasting Service under legislation filed by Texas’ Ronny Jackson in the U.S. House.

“When NPR and PBS were established by Congress, it was with the notion that their content would remain unbiased and benefit every American, however it is obvious that NPR and PBS have abandoned their founding principles,” said U.S. Rep. Jackson. “For decades, radical Democrats have siphoned hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars to NPR and PBS under the guise of ‘serving the public’ despite sharing all the same propaganda of any other radical-left corporate news outlet.”

Jackson said taxpayers should not be required to subsidize NPR and PBS, which he described as “deceptive, partisan news outlets.”

The text of his legislation, the No Partisan Radio and Partisan Broadcasting Services Act, can be found here.
