Bush hates Big Bird and wants Elmo to die



"President Bush is reopening the fight over government support of public television, unveiling a 2007 government fiscal year budget that would cut federal funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting by nearly 25 percent.".........

Before the days of cable, a strong case could be made for government funding the type of programming that appeared on PBS.

Now anyone who wants access to such programming may get it via cable or satellite, with much greater variety.

What about those who can't afford cable? It's a choice. If you want your kids to have access to unnecessary things such as television, then you make sacrifices to enable those benefits.

(I don't think I can afford many of the things I provide for my son, but I scrimp elsewhere, such as: No cable in my house.)

Furthermore, PBS has digressed from its origin, such that (at least) some of its programming is of a type that I don't think the government should be funding. If PBS is to survive, then it should do so in the free market.

Last point: I am sick to death of all the thinly-disguised commercials that are already appearing on PBS. They should just accept it and go to commercial funding.

(End of rant.)
