Media Research Center President Brent Bozell is calling President Donald Trump's move to eliminate funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), “fantastic news.”

Trump’s proposed 2018 budget eliminates funding for the CPB, which currently receives roughly $445 million in federal dollars.

“This is fantastic news. There is absolutely no reason for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting to receive taxpayer funding,” Bozell said in a statement.

“I have long opposed taxpayer subsidization of public broadcasting because it’s not the federal government’s business to prop up media entities with taxpayer money. There are plenty of leftwing billionaires who could help fund the liberal propaganda coming from CPB.

“Now it’s time for Congress to follow through and eliminate CPB’s funding once and for all,” Bozell added.

MRCTV is a division of the Media Research Center.
