Save Public Broadcasting - SAVE CWA JOBS!If U.S. House Republicans get their way, PBS, NPR and local radio and TV public broadcasting stations would lose their federal funding and up to 1,500 CWA members could lose their jobs.
Republicans want to strip all funding from the current year's budget for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, a move that has already spurred outrage and petitions on Facebook and other social networking sites.
NABET-CWA has launched its own campaign, urging people to call or e-mail their members of Congress immediately or, even better, write a handwritten letter, fax it to CWA and it will be personally delivered.
