     Hi everyone!
     I am currently doing a paper on PBS for a course I am taking and am
     looking for some information.  I am looking for some of the following:
     1- Is PBS organized along the same lines as, say CBS?  I mean is there
     a main corporation with a few owned affiliates and several affiliate
     deals?  Is each station an independent?  Do they make profits or are
     they totally nonprofit and government controlled?
     2 - How is the funding broken down for PBS?  Government funding vs.
     donations vs. corporate sponsorship?
     3 - Laws that affect PBS structure and how they might be affected by
     the Republican's desire to eliminate this public entity.  Ways to
     resolves this? (Comments welcome on this issue.)
     Additionally, any books, articles, people, etc. that can give me the
     above information and more.
