In 1979, a small network with an unusual name rolled out a big idea: Let viewers make up their own minds. C-SPAN opened the doors to Washington policy making, providing gavel-to-gavel coverage of the U.S. Congress without editing, commentary or analysis. A lot has changed in 40 years, but that original big idea is more relevant than ever. Underpinning this impartial, balanced coverage is the fact that no government or taxpayer dollars support C-SPAN, as we have always been funded as a public service by your cable or satellite provider.
