Should Federal Funding to PBS be Cut? [POLL]
During the first Presidential debate, Mitt Romney stated that he would cut funding to PBS even though he liked Sesame Street and Big Bird. The Obama campaign aimed to jump on the argument yesterday by putting out a campaign ad featuring Big Bird. The Sesame Workshop then asked the Obama campaign to take down the down. According to the Daily Caller:
“Sesame Workshop is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization and we do not endorse candidates or participate in political campaigns,” stated a blog post on the organization’s website. “We have approved no campaign ads, and as is our general practice, have requested that the ad be taken down.”
The 30-second ad evokes the familiar movie trailer voice to satirize Romney’s statement from the first presidential debate that he will cut funding to PBS in spite of his feelings for the network and for Big Bird.
The debate still remains for some though. Should funding for PBS be cut? Let us know your thoughts in today’s KFYO Poll of the Day.
