A question for Vermont Public Radio

I am listening to VPR's pledge drive.  After praising themselves as wonderful broadcasters--apparently none better--and then urging support so that listeners feel "pride of ownership",   why does VPR urge us to call our congressional delegation to keep federal funding for VPR?  If the product is so superior,  it should not need federal subsidies.

  1. We're paying for them to cajole us to continue to pay them.

    I will be the first to contribute to their pledge drive when I am no longer forced to contribute through my tax dollars!
