Let's take the politics out of it for just a moment.Is it your belief that PBS could not survive without the 17% of its funding that it gets from the CPB?PBS, as well as even Sesame Street, already have significant corporate sponsors. Could not the private sector help raise the difference?What about the revenue from their shows? Sesame Street makes well over $100 million a year just in licensing fees. Who knows how much it makes from toys and other licensing.Back to the politics:Romney's comment about PBS in that setting was a bonehead move. I am sure there are dozens of other, less popular programs he could have highlighted to make his point, even though federal funding for PBS is one that should be considered cut.HawkwinWho donates to the arts and education (locally) every year.
