Fund PBS with Soros' pocket change

A Facebook friend posts a link to's attempt to save NPR and PBS.
In an age where AOL can spend (how much?) for Huffington Post, why do we need government support for certain channels. There's hundreds of channels out there, for all interests, and the future will probably bring more - not less - choice.
PBS shouldn't miss it's money - sell a few more Elmo shirts.
NPR dug its grave with the Juan Williams mess - nothing like putting a big target on your back when the Republican budget cutters are out hunting.
Sure, it's doesn't take much federal money to fund NPR and PBS. George Soros probably has that much in his pocket.
Lest children find that Sesame Street has been brought to you by the letters "I.O.U."
