Non profits? I don’t think so.

I know a bit about what PBS gets for finding since I happen to know several people who work on their fundraising committees. I also know that they get a hefty chunk of change from the government. So when they say they are so poor that they can not offer the public free programing so they “have to charge a monthly fee” for older shows and shows that are free on regular TV then something is wrong. I hope others see this and band together to get rid of their “passport” program. It is not right that they should take advantage of their watchers when they should be getting enough money in their budget to take care of whatever they need. If they start charging, they are no longer a non-profit organization and no longer serve the needs of their viewers.
