Hey lying moron, I didn't say it's a conservative channel.
I said that you Tea Bagging constapo cretins apply your "government funding of culture" outrage selectively.
Do you understand what "selectively" means, Cletus? I explained it a few posts ago.
You only complain about certain things that the government funds. You're not complaining about government funding things, you only complaining about the government funding things you don't like.
Okay, then. Only you constapo idiots will be taxed to pay for the next invasion of Iraq. PBS viewers will be exempt from those taxes.
And moron, research makes it quite clear that young children are very susceptible to TV ads. Younger ones can't even distinguish the commercials from the show, or even from reality. There is a good argument to be made that a commercial free oasis is a good, additional choice for parents.
And of course we don't see quality children's programming on the order of "Sesame Street" on commercial TV, anyway. It's somewhat valuable to have a venue for it.
Name calling, inability to read...... I see I'm dealing with a public education student, so let's try this again, and I'll type slower so you can understand:

THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SHOULD NOT BE FUNDING ANYTHING NOT LISTED IN THE US CONSTITUTION!

Now, there is nothing selective about that, is there?

If Sesame Street is so wonderful, so informative, so educational, then shutting down PBS would be a favor to the creators of the program because then it would force them to a network that is paid through advertising, and then they can actually make some money off of the show. But there is one catch of course: NOBODY WATCHES SESAME STREET! If kids want to learn to count to ten in Spanish, they have the internet.

DUH! If no one watches the show, then why is it still on the air?
Some people have no sense.

Of course I kind of have to agree. PBS shoudl probably find more corperate funding in place of govorment loans.
