via Columbia Access Television community disappointed by city budget proposal | Local | columbiamissourian.com

Unfortunately there is a serious vendetta against the poor being waged by the local powers-that-be. Every other city in the country pays for public access with cable fees…not here. Generally cable access fees pay for 3 local channels addressing the public, education, and government. The article doesn’t say how much the government access channel gets; I am confidant to conjecture that it is much more than the $35000 the public channel gets (politicians always seem to look out for themselves at the expense of everyone else.)

Kudos to councilman Thomas for being on the right side of most issues addressing local inequity (the article doesn’t state who the second councilperson voting with him was).
