... one of the things the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting do is bring the arts and humanities to areas that don’t have big museums or lots of wealthy patrons for symphonies, ballets and theater, in addition to preserving and supporting local folk art traditions. And 219 of the 577 television stations that get grants from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting broadcast to rural communities; those stations rely on those grants for a larger percentage of their revenue, and they receive less support from donors than stations in denser areas.
As has been observed a bajillion times before, heavy Trump voting areas are going to feel the impact of his Presidency more. And not in beneficial ways. Reagan and Bush both targeted these programs, and the Democratic Congress waved them away. No such saviour now.
