PBS and NPR rely primarily on underwriting. That underwriting is primarily from large Leftist Trusts like the Ford Foundation. You're a fool to believe they don't have an agenda.

Welcome to President Obama's Sunday, as chronicled by the AP:

On Sunday, Obama was holding two fundraisers in Los Angeles.
