We watch PBS. We appreciate the fine arts: ballet, opera, symphony, classical and American theatre as well as documentaries on historic subjects and current events.
Your publication, funded by Richard Mellon Scaife, is pure propaganda for the Right. You have your followers and you are entitled to them.
PBS has its viewers and they are entitled to them. We dislike your self-serving motives in suggesting that our tax money ought not be allocated to PBS, you do not speak for the American people anymore than the ultra conservatives do.
If the conservative radio and TV programs were not filled with name-calling and negative rhetoric, we might be inclined to tune in and listen. You might believe you are gaining listeners. It might be a short-term-gain. But, what are you creating? What kind of a society are you fostering? It is certainly not the America most of us wish to live in.
We want PBS fully funded with our tax money. We do not need a Richard Mellon Scaife-funded-publication and its editor-in-chief determining what should be produced and what we ought to view.
If there were more Bill Moyers in the world, we would not be in the mess we find ourselves in — in Iraq. We support to the hilt our U.S. Troops. We do not support the goals and strategies of this administration. Nor do we support its contrived reasons for invading Iraq.
We now learn all we needed to get Saddam Hussein was a bag of Doritos. Imagine that, one of the most “dangerous tyrants” in the world being monitored by two young National Guard men (boys) who were never outside of their home state of Pennsylvania. All we needed was a bag of Doritos to get Saddam out of his spider hole. No, we had to lose 1,717 U.S. Soldiers, 35,060 U.S. wounded soldiers and 112,000 killed Iraqi people. What a shame. What a tragedy.
We are more than tired of the hate-filled Conservative/Republican talking points used over and over by talking heads and hosts on Murdoch-owned-stations and by Roger Ailes’ puppets.
You have overstepped the bounds of free speech this time. If you do not agree with a topic, you want to kill the messenger as the Greeks did centuries ago.
I am amazed to learn that you were a philosophy major. What has happened to your keen mind? How could you permit it to be poisoned by extreme points of view with a goal of silencing differing opinions based on fact — not contrived data as yours is. Remember, this is America not Iraq or Saudi Arabia!
You have some gall in attempting to censor the public airwaves at a time when this administration is attempting to foster democracy around the world. What a sad, sad commentary on the true motives of this administration and its flacks.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
