Difference between public and commercial radio? Just take a listen

Bob Davis, editor of the Anniston (Ala.) Star, undertook an experiment to determine if the "enlightened" broadcasting content that President Lyndon Johnson envisioned when he signed the Public Broadcasting Act of 1967 is being provided by commercial radio, thus eliminating the need for NPR. "Friday morning, I probed this idea by randomly scanning the radio dial, something my family can attest is a specialty of mine," Davis said. What he found may not be surprising, but it is amusing.

public radio is the true meaning of the subject that is being discussed,without public radio the public of a nation will have no acess to the truth and will make terrible decision that will affect his or hers life.
