Sesame Street brings in more than twice as much as the Batman franchise, for example. It hardly needs taxpayer subsidies.

Yes, it does, so do all the other children's programming on PBS.


I put it in the same category as Planned Parenthood. They both do good things, and I have sent them lots of money over the years. Both should be supported by those who want to use it and those interested in their continued operation, not general taxpayer funds. Being self-funded also removes them from the political crossfire.
