8,300 contributors....

You really have to wonder about a lot of things when you think of the quality of what WUNC retransmits from NPR and American Public Media and that only 8,300 people are willing to contribute money to pay for it. That's out of how many millions of peopl in North Carolina - since this is for something called "North Carolina Public Radio". Maybe those who don't contribute wonder about where all the money goes that does not pay for those retransmissions, but I suspect it is far different. People decreasingly value quality and the ultimate test of that valuation is what they are willing to pay for it in an age when people have been taught that stealing content for free from the web is normal and correct conduct.
