Rubio goes on NPR and talks about defunding NPR

Media

On NPR's The Diane Rehm Show this morning, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) said taxpayer dollars shouldn't support public broadcasting, such as NPR.

“I do have concerns about spending money on public broadcasting,” Rubio told Diane Rehm during an hourlong Q&A on NPR. ...

A caller pointed out the irony of Rubio’s  position, saying,  “He’s spending an entire hour on the show today.”

Rubio countered that a half-century ago, a station like NPR might have been necessary, but “today there is no shortage of options” for news and opinion.

“I have 300 stations on my satellite radio,” Rubio boasted.
