Several years ago, during one of their, it seems like almost weekly, pledge drives, 1 of our local PBS stations called me to try to get me to subscribe. I refused. They asked me how often I watch them. I said rarely. They told me that if I watch them for even a minute & I'm not a subscriber, I'm stealing programming. I responded that as long as my tax dollars subsidise them then I am a subscriber & that's all the money they'll get from me. Their response? "We are not subsidised by the government. We don't receive tax money,"
