“To compel a man to furnish funds for the propagation of ideas he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.”  Thomas Jefferson

The quote above has popped up in numerous locations and in stories regarding NPR and it’s overtly political stance in firing Juan Williams.  Ironically, Williams — a liberal commentator — has become somewhat of a cause célèbre for conservative pundits and bloggers illustrating the bias and double standard from entrenched liberal media outlets.

The interesting fallout for NPR is that there has been a growing swell of calls for the defunding or elimination of federal funding for NPR and it’s sister PBS

Remember that ACORN actually did get defunded by Congress after the damaging videos were released showing the criminal nature of the ACORN organization.
