Well hey, they did air an oh-so-insightful (note sarcasm) report on Lindsey Lohan this AM... along with the box office take on the Simplekins movie (and yes, including the obligatory exclamation as often locuted by the patriarch - not to be repeated here). So slap me edified!

I was wondering if any of you had any ideas for ways to fund local public radio stations that don't end up paying part of Steve Inskeep's $300K/year salary?

Pacifica Radio is the oldest public radio network in the U.S.

NO corporate $$ accepted.

I've switched to listening to Public Radio International's "The World" http://www.theworld.org/. Here in Boston WGBH carries it between 4 PM and 5 PM. It might be useful to ask your local public radio station to carry it in place of NPR.

Or divert some of those donations to PBS programs such as NOW, Frontline and Bill Moyers' Journal. REAL REPORTING, and NO BLEEPING FLUFF.
