I am an avid public-radio listener and donate regularly to my local station. It recently became known that its chief executive is the highest-paid in public broadcasting, earning nearly $500,000 a year. Many of my friends see this as a misuse of donated money and now refuse to support the station. I feel that if you listen, you must pay your share. Who’s right?Huhh? Your tax money already supports public radio. So do commercials, even tho they broadcast on non-commercial frequencies. Their news stories are filled with leftist propaganda. And yet somehow liberal guilt gets people to donate money to support outrageous salaries. Go figure.
