Rep. Jackson Reintroduces Legislation To End Taxpayer-Funded Fake News
Today, Congressman Ronny Jackson (TX-13) introduced the No Partisan Radio and Partisan Broadcasting Services Act, or the NPR and PBS Act, which would end the federal government’s financial support of both National Public Radio (NPR) and Public Broadcasting Service (PBS). This legislation will prohibit federal funds from being used to support NPR or PBS, thereby ending these outlets from pushing their radical-left agenda on the American people with taxpayer dollars.
Jackson said: “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. 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. Taxpayers should not be forced to support biased media like NPR and PBS against their will, which is why I am proud to introduce legislation that will end federal funding to these deceptive, partisan news outlets.”
