Romney's deficit plan is to get rid of PBS. That surely will work!

Are there not plenty of stations, available?

PBS stations are commonly operated by non-profit organizations, state agencies, local authorities (e.g., municipal boards of education), or universities in their city of license. In some U.S. states, PBS stations throughout the entire state may be organized into a single regional "subnetwork" called a state network (e.g., Alabama Public Television). Unlike public broadcasters in most other countries, PBS does not own any of the stations that broadcast its programming (i.e., there are no PBS owned-and-operated stations (O&O) anywhere in the country). This is partly due to the origins of the PBS stations themselves, and partly due to historical broadcast license issues.

In the modern broadcast marketplace, this organizational structure is considered outmoded by some media critics. A common restructuring proposal is to reorganize the network so that each state would have one PBS member which would broadcast state-wide. However, this proposal is controversial, as it would reduce local community input into PBS programming, especially considering how PBS stations are significantly more community-oriented, according to the argument, than their commercial broadcasting counterparts.

One would think that PBS would be pro-repub agenda as it is locally run and serves the needs/viewing preferences of local market. It takes only what? .01% of federal monies and exists through chartitale donations, locally run and operated? Isn't that a repubs dream? Limited big government, local control by the people? Why throw big government weight around by giving Big Bird the ax?
