Sen. Jim DeMint on Friday declared that he would introduce a bill to strip taxpayer subsidies of NPR and PBS in the wake of the Jaun Williams firing controversy.
“The incident with Juan Williams reminds us the only free speech liberals support is the speech with which they agree,” he wrote on Twitter. Then, a few minutes later, he added, “I’ll introduce legislation to end taxpayer funding for NPR & PBS.”
In 2005, a similar effort failed in the House by a 284 to 140 vote.
