CPB seeks to make public broadcasting more accessible to the public it serves. To do so CPB maintains a toll-free, 24-hour telephone line (1-800-272-2190), an online contact form, and accepts letters sent directly to CPB.

All comments are available on this website to be viewed by the general public. Each year, by statute, CPB transmits this public link to the White House for its report to Congress. Additionally, comments pertaining to programming are shared with the CPB Board of Directors and relevant public media staff.

Yesterday, a NPR reporter said that Israel "claims" 1100 killed by Hamas. Claims??? Could they be more dismissive of the slaughter of innocent people? Why are our tax dollars paying for this?

I have been listening to NPR for more than 30 years. I am sad to see the imbroglio NPR has gotten itself into regarding the politics of its newsroom. I hope that NPR weathers that storm. Please--in the name of God, PLEASE--get Ayesha Rascoe off of the radio. I am sure she is a competent, professional, and nice person, but her voice is like fingernails on a chalkboard. I just cannot listen to her speak, and I cannot listen to NPR's weekend news shows anymore. It is painful.

Recently NPR has been scrutinized and found out only Democratic people work for it,it is funded by the feds that operate the education department of commerce and also CPB. So do you feel that you're not biased in your contributions towards an only Democrat news provider? Isn't this slanted ? I'm fine with the elections coming up and it's such a struggle for all parties in election that you're just contributing to the party of your choice which is Democrat do you have anything to say about this

I hope that you will discontinue funding for NPR until the CEO, Katherine Maher, resigns. A CEO who suspends an employee for pointing out bias is not fit for the job. A publicly funded communication outlet should present a variety of ideas.

My wife and I are nonpartisan moderates and are members of two public radio stations (KVMR, KKCR). We are not members of our local Sacramento based Cap Public Radio. The reason that we are not members is because of their support of NPR. We like our news fair and balances. NPR is anything but that. NPR news can be characterized as Trump bad, abortion good, police bad and play the race card whenever possible. The recent relevations by the NPR whistleblower support our opinion. NPR is not a constructive use of our hard earned tax dollars and doesn't reflect the values of the majority of American taxpayers. We are asking you to stop all taxpayer funding of NPR. NPR can survive without our money. We have shared our beliefs with our congressman. Please respond.

Why are you still funding NPR?

Uri Berliner's recent article about NPR is a true insider whistleblower piece exposing the strong bias and slant in NPR's reporting and governance. In fact, this bias even colored over them reporting accurately about things like Covid. After doing so, he actually was punished by NPR and denounced by the staff there. This is Pravda-like behavior. The strong Left-wing bias and politically-driven agenda there is now out in the open, it is no longer hidden behind any pretense of unbiased good journalism and content. As CPB is publicly funded, why are you still using taxpayer funds to contribute to basically a Democrat party organ? This should be reconsidered immediately. Thanks, M Waller

It is very disappointing that America is no longer objective, and no one seems to care. Why do you only support Democrats? Why are we going backwards? Is this Nazi Germany? Why are you guys supporting silencing of opposing views? Shouldn't diversity of opinions matter? You should not be giving any money to NPR as its a mouthpiece for a political party. I try to listen to NPR to support them, but I do not want to support someone who cannot give me the truth even if it goes against what I believe. How do you change peoples minds? And the Leader of NPR thinks its a good thing. I don't care who you vote for, our news organization should be honest. I'm tired of all the lying. Especially by politicians. Can we stop lying on the radio on programs that are supposed to be objective? Shouldn't you be writing off your grants as political donations?

Please look at the multitude of complaints online, on other sites, about this NPR weekend announcer. She is not only an assault to the eardrums, but an assault to all senses. Radio is an audio medium. We don't get to see the broadcaster, so voice, grammar and presentation are very important. I have tried to listen to Ayesha but everything about her is grating. Sunday mornings should be a relaxing, laid back time. I've given up on Sunday mornings and cannot listen. This is not racist at all. I've loved Jenn White for years. Audie Cornish was so professional. I had fellow students on my college radio station in the late 70's that sounded more professional than Ms. Rascoe. Listen to the way she introduces the Sunday puzzle. She is literally screeching! I worked on-air in big market radio for 40 years, plus a national music network. I also worked at an NPR affiliate. Ayesha's experience would be better used for NPR off-mic. I cannot believe Sunday morning ratings have not suffered since she took over. Thank you for your consideration.

Congressman Scott Perry Introduces the No Propaganda Act Washington, D.C. - Today, U.S. Representatives Scott Perry (PA-10), Thomas Massie (KY-04), Mary Miller (IL-15), and Andy Ogles (TN-05) introduced the No Propaganda Act to defund the biased Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB). The organization and its subsidiaries are staffed by extreme liberals, including the newly appointed divisive CEO of the National Public Radio (NPR) who has openly campaigned for Joe Biden. “The American Taxpayer is footing the bill for a woke media corporation that pretends to be impartial while pushing Chinese propaganda,” said Rep. Perry. “CPB cannot be allowed to keep using your hard-earned tax dollars to push a biased and political agenda that goes against what’s best for Americans.” Claiming to be unbiased and serving in the best interest of the public, the CPB funds content that incorporates woke and divisive messaging. A whistleblower, and 25-year veteran of NPR, recently called out NPR for allowing its “pro-Democrat political leanings to seep into editorial judgments, including its decision to turn a blind eye to the Hunter Biden laptop story.” In addition to influencing public opinion about U.S. politics, CPB has worked with a Chinese Communist Party-controlled media outlet registered as a foreign agent to air a documentary promoting Chinese propaganda. These efforts are funded in part by CPB grants paid for by American Citizens. “Congress must exercise oversight of the CPB and stop corruption in its tracks,” said Rep. Andy Ogles. “Taxpayers fund the CPB and it should be a source that provides a truly neutral and balanced perspective. That can only be achieved through the diversity of political ideology. Recent reports from a whistleblower indicate the CPB is nothing more than a propaganda machine for the Democrat party. I thank Congressman Perry for leading this bill to defund it and I’m proud to cosponsor.” Founded in 1967, the CPB is a publicly funded non-profit corporation that promotes and advances public broadcasting. Throughout the years, Congress has appropriated nearly $15 billion to the CPB, which distributes the funds to publicly owned television and radio stations like the Public Broadcasting Service.

I didn't need an article by one of your own editors to tell me you are communist propaganda. I noticed it going that way years ago and stopped listening to you and affiliates, as did my friends and family. I DO NOT want ANY more of my tax money to go to your treasonous cause, and am telling Congress so as well. You are destroying America and really ought to be ashamed. Just remember, one day you will have to answer to God. Turn it around now, people.

Feedback:
I believe CPB has failed in it's financial obligations by providing funding for NPR, since you do not meet your obligation to serve THE PUBLIC. In this way CPB is misusing public funds. I would like to see this change, since I believe NPR has a legacy of support for democracy, which has now eroded. I do not want to see funding for CPB /NPR be reduced by Congress, but I think this will be a required step unless things dramatically change. CPB objectives include: "Foster a PUBLIC media workforce that includes the DIVERSE backgrounds, talents, and experiences of the American people" ( Data show that there are NO Republican's working for NPR. It's not politically diverse. And NPR recently changed it's policies to allow political activism. This is a violation of public trust and federal guidelines for political neutrality) "Support initiatives and projects that extend the reach of public media to new and DIVERSE users and creators of content" ( NPR is only supporting Democratic and progressive initiatives and projects) " Work with public media ....to address important local, regional, and national issues contributing to the national DIALOGUE." ( CPB supports NPR, where the term DIALOGUE is being used fraudulently. Dialogue requires two perspectives. NPR is now entirely one sided politically) "Support efforts to strengthen community engagement with DIVERSE organizations and institutions." ( The CPB must divest from supporting NPR, which is no longer National PUBLIC Radio. It should now be called National PROGRESSIVE Radio. This claim is based on my own personal observations over the last 20 years, but the best evidence for the claim I am making of fraud comes from Uri Berliner : https://www.thefp.com/p/npr-editor-how-npr-lost-americas-trust Since I have written and called NPR numerous times about this over the last 5 years, and nothing has happened, I will now escalate this however I can. I would not be doing this to private media companies like CNN or MSNB ( or Fox, but obviously they are right wing nuts, not progressives). But CPB and NPR are violating the Public Trust !

After the story regarding NPR covering up the truth concerning stories related to the covering up the Hunter Biden laptop as well as pushing the Trump collusion fake news via Adam Shiff myself and many people like myself, I shall be pushing to stop all funding for NPR.
