omg!!

sesame street was for STUPID kids...the ones who had NO attention span whatsoever.
i fricking hated that show.

It's aimed at the 1-6 year old crowd.
They teach counting, ABC's, grouping things etc.
How old were you when you "fricking hated" it?

all of the above.

and then theres elmo...

S977 Do we have to make everything for profit?

No...But once you are supporting yourself. Then gracefully bow out of government funding, Thank you very much.

Nice observation, Elizabeth!

It ruffles my feathers that Romney brought Big Bird into it though....

Well... It was because the Moderator was from PBS. PBS who along with NPR, got their hands caught in the cookie jar, over their biased./gov. funded, programming.

More republican faux bellyaching about a problem that does not exist.


Quote:Most Americans think public broadcasting receives a much larger share of the federal budget than it actually does, according to a new poll from CNN/Opinion Research.

A majority of poll respondents think the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, a non-profit created by Congress that helps fund NPR and PBS as well as other public media, receives a share of 1 percent or more of the federal government’s budget.

In the financial year for 2010, the CPB reported receiving $506 million in federal appropriations. According to the White House’s Office of Management and Budget, the federal budget for 2010 was $3.456 trillion. Using those numbers, the CPB receives about .00014 percent of the federal budget. Of course, poll respondents are way off in other areas, assigning a median of 137 percent of the federal government’s budget to various government programs, suggesting Americans think the government simply spends more than it actually does as a general rule.

Your welcome. chuckle

But why should the Government pay even a single DIME, to an organization that makes its own money, yet claims to provide unbiased views, but has been caught red handed, from their own mouths, that they do not.

Hell, then Fox News should get gov. funding!

See how that works?

Quote:Many people don’t realize that Sesame Workshop is a nonprofit organization. For all of our programs, which include productions in more than 140 countries, we must cover the substantial cost of research and curriculum development, writing, design, production, and more.

So, Elizabeth, your argument fails the smell test. on top of that, the PBS budget is miniscule as a line-item, and really not significant to balancing any fantasy budget in Mitt's tortured brain.

Its not just Big Bird... its all of PBS that would be lost. Sure take it away from us, but keep giving the money away overseas.

If we would quit paying off all the nations of the world, and fighting wars with many of them, we would have enough money to bury cookie monster in a mountain of cookies.

Obama got Bin Laden.... Romney put a hit out on Big Bird.
