Public Broadcasting

"Even factoring in money provided by states and local governments, Americans pay less than $4 a year for the television and radio programming they get from PBS and NPR. Canadians and Australians pay about 8 times more per capita, the French and Japanese 14 times more, Britons 24 times more and Germans 41 times more."

"The federal investment in public broadcasting equals about one one-hundredth of one percent of the federal budget."
