I know this is a free country and public broadcasting relies on corporate underwtiters these days. But that didn't make me any happier when I saw the following company listed as one of their underwiters on their website.
85 Wells Avenue, Suite 305
One of the things that bothers me is that this company was provided with a gift of $114 million in federal stimulus dollars, part of which I, as a taxpayer, funded. If I personally want to contribute to MPBN (which has some great programs, writers, etc.), that is my business. But I object when my tax dollars are given to a company that then just gives them away to MPBN or other causes.
If you are going to apply for my tax dollars, cut unnecessary spending first. Was contributing to MPBN necessary?
