Bye-bye, Big Bird? PBS funding under fire

Much has been made of this past week’s first presidential debate: President Obama’s perceived poor performance, Jim Lehrer’s mediocre moderating and Mitt Romney’s surprisingly strong showing. But...

@deddles1621,

number one:abortion is NOT killing babies! at the stagewhere most abortions take place, the embryo is just a totally unconsious bundle of sex cells! a bundle of sex cells is not the same as a baby!

number two:what about the 1 in 133,000 females that do get pregnant from rape? some of these girls are preteens like me! would you like to go to your middle school one day(or visit your old middle school, i don't know how old you are)and see some 7th grader pregnant? this will impact their lives! the girl probrably does not want to be pregnant! and she probrably doesn't want to go through childbirth, wich is nesasary for the baby to be adopted! the girl would rather get her bundle of sex cells removed quickly and quietly than to go through 9 months of pregnancy and then go through childbirth!it's just unfair. all women have the right to choose, the government should not be the masters of someone's own body

Oh come on! People are way too worked up over this! So what? PBS and NPR are funded by federal taxes, and not everyone uses these services. Not fair. The stations can just do advertisements like the rest of the television world! Would it ruin them? No! The rest of the world is functioning just fine like this; why can't they?

Im sorry, how is this considered advice? Im here for advice, not whether or not abortion is legal or what puppets should be televised.

Your point? It's a million times more messed up to make a veggie monster (i love cookie monster and i am not close to obese) than it is to take big bird. Oh, well, I personally don't care, but I don't get why Jim Henson's gotta get so much crap from politics. I'm not an antifederalist in ajy way, but one day, I ask, can my life not be flooded by all of this political mud slinging here?

Deedles123,

Yes, I know how it works. I agree that you should not be taxed if it is not your beliefs but I don't believe you should be trying to control other people's rights. You are only being taxed if the woman can not afford the procedure. Most of these procedures are from women living in relatively upper class households. If you are against it, Fine. Don't have one. But it is not, nor ever will be your decision to tell these women what they can and cannot do. You don't even know them. Do you know how many women are in this country? More than 150,000,000. That ratio you had is not as small as you think. Get your facts right.

Just because he might cut funding for PBS doesn't mean Sesame Street is gone, it just means they need to find a new channel. Calm down.

OK stop calling the president of the united states nObama. I honestly cannot think of a stupider more uneducated rednecky term. But go ahead, "anybody but the black guy". Jerk.

Who cares if they cut PBS...I think the government has better things to put money towards. Its just a program, not the end of the world. TV programs get cut all the time. Romney 2012.
