About the big bird comment. Why should pbs be government funded? You can't go but a $5 re-run? Are parents completely reliant on PBS for education? Make some damn flash cards!
This is like you losing your job knowin you're in debt and refusing to cut the cable!
I wish Obama would stfu about it

Yup, sounds government funded to me. That's kind of what that means.

I agree as well, though I haven't heard Obama say anything about it.

Do you realize how small PBS costs are in comparison to what we spend. The war takes up a good majority of the money, PBS is nothing.

How about less war and more education as the reason we are at war is a lack of education.

Our government is broke, our economy is in the toilet and everyone is worried about BigBird!

Eh. I mean I think cuts DO need to be made.

If I can't afford my bills, TV would be one of the first things to go.

here's what i don't get:  everyone is freaking out...but out of all those people, how many of them have actually ever donated money to their local PBS affiliate?  our local PBS channel is constantly having fund raisers.

Most of PBS' money comes from viewers donations, not the federal government.  I think it's something like 0.0012% of our federal budget and if that money can be used somewhere else, like education for example, then do it.  PBS won't go away if the federal government takes away money from it.
