I watched every moment of Tonight’s Presidential Debate; however, I did miss this one comment by Mitt Romney to Jim Lehrer, the Moderator from the Public Broadcasting Service. It did, however, note a very popular Republican theme–de-funding PBS. As noted in the sixth paragraph, Romney advises Mr. Lehrer that he will cut the subsidy to PBS.
Just think of the shows that would never be produced if there was not Government funding of the many cultural and artistic programs that PBS produces. Are you looking forward to watching Sesame Street with your young grandchildren, just like you did with their Mom or Dad? Have you seen anything as worthwhile as “Civil War”, produced by Ken Burns? NOVA? How about making Concerts and Dance Theater available to rural areas–where they would never be seen otherwise?
Just keep that in mind if Mitt Romney were to occupy The Oval Office.
