Of course there are others forms of the media that one can support, etc., much besides "underwritten" radio that appears to "miss" much beyong ther permissible spectrum, or that which might have the United States acting as an agent other than the unquestioned, benevelont role with the occasional "mistake."

"Other" in terms of various forms, commitment, reflections of reality, i.e., supported by active listeners, not corporate underwriters. Other public radio is possible - already exists and is evolving (some examples, AirwaveWEB).
Even if the head of a foundation, underwriter didn't outright say in effect that "profit over people" is the number one concern of corporations one might be used to a host of some forms of public radio not offering the least bit of critical discussion to such a comment: the number one goal of corporations is to maximize profit. Without any qualifiers, and as one perspective of reality must surely show, the outcome is "profit over people".
Some forms of radio would not require one to have to say such as what follows is a "public service announcement", it would be part of the context of the nature of its being. Some examples, WORT, KPFA, Allston Brighton Free Radio (www.abfreeradio.org), each website is also telling and reflective of the nature of their programming.
