NPR and PBS are the two most valuable resources on the airwaves today, and for far more than their excellent documentary, drama and children's programs. Studies (The PIPA studies in particular) have shown that people who get their news from NPR and PBS are far better informed factually than those who get news from other sources, particularly Fox News. I strongly suspect that these threats are being pushed by people whose agendas would be best served by a badly informed electorate.
