Re: Defending Lamb From Savage Attacks

Phil: This is not intended in any way to appear as an effort on my part to get invited back on the wacky Savage show, but I don’t understand your point about C-Span’s not being taxpayer-funded. You write: “Lamb explained that the channel is not publicly funded, but financed via a five cent contribution from everybody’s cable bill.” Our various utility bills are filled with such de-facto taxes. Remember the outrage when Al Gore sought ways to fund his Internet in every classroom scheme through I believe it additional charges on phone bills? If the five-cent “contribution” is not voluntary, it’s a tax, legislatively mandated. It’s all for a great cause, agreed, but it’s nonetheless something that could have been concocted by a Ralph Nader — or were you spared compulsory contributions to Naderite “pergs” while paying student fees during your college days?
