It was National Public Radio that angered Republicans this fall, but it could be local public television stations that feel conservatives’ wrath.
Since public radio giant NPR fired commentator Juan Williams in October, more and more Republican lawmakers — including Rep. Jerry Lewis, R-Redlands — have called for cutting off federal funding for public broadcasting. If they manage to do that, San Bernardino County’s local public radio station would probably get by, but the local public television station would likely be in trouble.
