Nobel winner tells you how you turn Skin Cells into Stem Cells (more or less).  I’m paraphrasing.

Save Big Bird

170 Million Americans for Public BroadcastingThe complete elimination of federal funding for PBS is back in the national dialogue. KQED has always been a nonpartisan media voice whose interest is in presenting facts and context. Because of the comments made last night, I want to make sure you have accurate information and to ask you to voice your support for KQED.

  • Funding for public media has always been a bipartisan effort, and a recent poll shows that 69% of Americans oppose eliminating federal funding.
  • The American taxpayer contributes only $1.35 per year for public radio, public television and the educational services public media provides.
  • Funding for public media represents less than 0.0014% of the federal budget.
  • 30 years of research shows that children who watch Sesame Street in preschool spend more time reading for fun in high school and obtain higher grades in English, math and science.

Cutting funding for KQED and all of public media won’t make a dent in Washington’s budget problems but it will greatly impact the programs and services KQED can provide.

You can help by joining us at 170millionamericans.org where you’ll find the tools to make a call, write a letter or send an email registering your voice and your vote for KQED.

You are KQED. Thank you for watching, listening and caring about KQED and your community,

(In New York, THIRTEEN will air the programs at 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 9 p.m. on Friday.
