Trump Terminates $445 Million From Public Radio Funding, NPR, PBS

Under the $1.1 trillion spending outline released on Thursday, the White House would zero out the $445 million annual allocation to the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. CPB is the not-for-profit that distributes federal dollars to nearly 1,500 local public radio and television stations nationwide. The loss of CPB funding is just part of $18 billion in reductions in federal spending that would offset about half the proposed increases in defense spending. “To keep Americans safe, we have made the tough choices that have been put off for too long,” President Trump said in a statement. “But we have also made the necessary investments that are long overdue.”
