Ongoing push to de-fund pubcasting still generating notes to CPB ombudsman

CPB Ombudsman Ken Bode looks back over the past year and the various notes he received along the way, including this: "I will dedicate my short life to de-funding you socialist bastards."

Bode observes: "If the majority leadership of the incoming Congress acts on its pledge to de-fund public broadcasting ... it doubtless will generate more expressions of that opinion."

"On the other hand," he notes, "it appears that the community is preparing to mount a strong, coordinated case in support of public broadcasting" (Current, Dec. 13, 2010).

Bode also gives high praise to "the public affairs sector of public broadcasting."
