Letters: Should listeners pay for public radio?

Kai Ryssdal Apr 20, 2012

We’re gonna do a single-topic mailbag today, a commentary from earlier this week about us. Public radio. And who ought to pay for it. Tucker Carlson, editor of The Daily Caller, offered his thoughts.

And now our listeners offer theirs. The listeners responding to Tucker Carlson were Dan Epp of Boise, Idaho; Thom Davis of Battleground, Ind.; Diana Cole of Burke, Va.; Joan Dulberg of Raleigh, N.C.; Carlos Morillo of Monmouth County, N.J.; Barbara Hines of Terlingua, Texas; Raymond Anthony from Virginia; and Torrey Douglass of Boonville, Calif.
