I would venture to say that, percentage-wise, the number of libruls who put their money where their mouth is and open their wallets when PBS asks for money is in the single digits. Libruls always want the government to pay for things. They LOVE spending OTHER PEOPLE'S MONEY.

I challenged my most librul friend on this issue. I said, "If you're willing, let's see what you spent on programs that you think are worth saving in the past 12 months." She wouldn't show me her bank statements (of course) but she did admit that she didn't support PBS personally even though her two school-age children enjoy the program very much.

This woman isn't poor, either.
