I've experienced Internet delays but worse is the request to pay for PBS programming. That is supposed to be a public service paid for by my tax dollars and it appears it may be one of the options the administration is using to pay for the subsidies and tax cuts to corporations. The public airways have been stolen from the public and gifted to corporations for profiteering. That is an outrage. My alternative is to not pay - therefore my small income will not be beneficial to the corporations. Nor will it enhance ratings since I will not be watching anything. Further, they will not have the numbers they require to promote viewers to advertisers. Fewer viewers means less ad dollars eventually means lousy programming. We are spiraling down & there will be NO winners.
