PBS, your 'news source' for daily Christian bombings

PBS Newshour logoPBS and NPR are on the chopping block in President Donald Trump's proposed budget, though it's uncertain they are in immediate danger. 

Many conservatives have long targeted the left-wing media outlets, and Tim Graham of the Media Research Center says you can find an example every week of anti-Christian or anti-conservative rhetoric.

He recalls when columnist David Brooks suggested that Ted Cruz was speaking in "dark and Satanic tones" during the Republican primary last year.  

"That's the guy that supposed to represent the Republicans on public broadcasting," Graham says of Brooks, who writes for The New York Times.

MRC was watching when PBS host Tavis Smily interviewed former Muslim Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a vocal critic of jihadist fanatics within the religion.

"The idea got into their minds," she told Smiley, "that to kill other people is a great thing to do and that they would be rewarded in the hereafter."

"But-but-but," Smiley responded, "Christians do that every single day in this country."

"Do they blow people up every single day?" Hirsi Ali pressed.  

"Yes," Smiley claimed. "Christians? Every day."

PBS receives funding from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), which received $445 million in 2016, Fox News reported.

The president and CEO of the CPB has claimed that cutting the budget would destroy the "public media's role" in "early childhood education, public safety, connecting citizens to our history, and promoting civil discussions."

It wasn't very civil, however, when PBS regular Julianne Malveaux once wished that Justice Clarence Thomas would die from heart disease.

Graham recalls when NPR discussed – on Good Friday - how the resurrection of Jesus Christ really didn't occur.

"It's definitely a political fight," Grahan says. "It is a fight about fairness, that it's not fair to make conservatives pay for negative advertising about themselves."
