President Trump's budget cuts PBS which produces Sesame Street.
C-U-T-S for PBS, 9.2 out of 10 based on 12 ratings
I thought HBO produced Sesame Street these days. If so, this cartoon would be a touch misleading.
HBO DOES produce “Sesame Street” these days. What appears on PBS are 2-year-old RERUNS, so yes, it IS misleading, meaning a DEM must have drawn it! Moreover, “Sesame Street” makes BILLIONS in the sale of character-related dolls and other toys, so they’re not likely to be going away.
As for NPR and PBS, if the liberals want to watch those liberal “news” outlets, let THEM pony up the money for a change, instead of expecting it to be financed with “other people’s money.” George Soros is fond of financing liberal causes–let HIM bankroll NPR and PBS.
The point is, when we have a $20 TRILLION DOLLAR national debt–thanks to that NASTY little sociopath that just moved out of the White House, but REFUSES to leave D.C. and quit interfering in our government–SOMETHING has to go! It’s a question of priorities, and in the great scheme of things, NPR and PBS are not so important that they must be government-supported. ESPECIALLY when they consistently show only ONE political view!
Public broadcasting served a purpose back when the only form of mass communication was radio. It can even be argued that when TV became the primary form of media, they still a function. However, now that the Internet is the primary form of information, public broadcasting serves absolutely no purpose whatsoever, and all funding should be cancelled.
HBO may create new episodes of Sesame Street, however PBS broadcasts the big yellow bird for free even if it isn’t the latest episodes, putting him in the living rooms of millions of “poor” little children whose destitute parents cannot afford to pay for HBO.
It’s hard to believe you are so heartless that you don’t want to pay to provide him to these little starving children but then you must both be Trump deplorables, right?
Next thing you know you’ll be pushing granny over the cliff in her wheelchair. 😉
Care full Snowy some Libtard will jump all over your comments not realizing or not caring that it is all sarcasm. However, I thought you were right on point.
You’re so right, Chucky! There’s one downlist right now doing exactly that. Should have remembered my /sarc tag. LOL
snowy, having read many of your posts, I’m pretty sure were being sarcastic, though you did such a GOOD job of synthesizing the “liberal” point of view on this, that it could easily be taken for an actual OPINION! 😀 Anyway, assuming you ARE being sarcastic/satirical–and very SKILLFULLY, too!–I gave you 5 stars.
Capt Jell. I wouldn’t make the claim the internet is the main source of news these days, but it IS getting more popular.. I will give you that.
However, EVEN in the age of TV< BPS imo is a dinosaur that needs to be allowed to die off…
There is MORE THAN enough stuff out there for kids to watch, without having to be brainwashed into liberalism by Sesame street..
Anyway, assuming you ARE being sarcastic/satirical–and very SKILLFULLY, too!–I gave you 5 stars.
Thank you for the vote of confidence, Teabag. I guess I better not get too good at this. Ha!
There are huge amounts of revenue from merchandising these characters. Let the commercial success of these items pay the bills!
Or if they can’t succeed and survive on their own, LET THEM die off..
Heartless?? You are ignoring the great success and profitability of Sesame Street. They do not need the tax dollars of those same “poor” people you are so concerned about. Sesame Street can easily stand on its own and would gladly be purchased by a nongov business. You are also ignoring the sums of $ that PBS pays to liberal groups. It is ironic that the left wants to take taxpayer $ from the left and right so that it can be used to campaign AGAINST the right. Same with most taxpayer funded groups PP being one of the largest and most damaging.
So…how is government funding of a show making multi-million dollar revenues NOT another example of “evil corporate welfare?”
Stop spending, its Not ironic, its HOW the liberals prefer to have things. USING OUR funds to fight us…
Fifty, even forty, years ago, PBS was an island of programming that presented, commercial-free, documentaries about Nature, topical issues, and shows aimed towards children with socialization and learning their agenda. Gradually, the presentations, of all types, became more and more infused with Liberal/Progressive opinions and messaging. It happened slowly so that many of us didn’t notice until today, there’s nothing broadcast by PBS that is not in one or several ways, a vehicle for promoting Leftist views. Documentaries about Nature will include an innocent-sounding pitch for the Left’s interpretation of climate change, while shows for children, a pitch for the LGBT agenda, or inter-racial unions, homosexual unions. That such exist is undeniable, but they are not “mainstream,” as PBS would have our children believe, and certainly not “ordinary.” They ought not be denounced, but neither ought they be made to appear common, fully accepted, even superior. Programs depicting illegal aliens, Muslims, African children, always show them sympathetically, as innocents, victims, pathetic. Corporations, especially those in the hydrocarbon business, as money-grubbing, insensitive, rapacious despoilers. Christians usually as weird cultists. (continued)
(continued) The military as wanton, cruel, inhumane. Public education as lacking sufficient “support” to do its job, ignoring the enormous number of tax dollars lavished upon it, and, of course, the Teachers’ Union’s role in its appalling decline. There is more, of course. It’s long past the time when public funding ought be withdrawn from such operations with a demonstrably politico/culturo agenda, whether Leftist, or whatever.
And hit is that fact that they ARE so leftist, where LBGQTPSQUREI agenda IS pushed so much, which is why if i ever DID have kids they would never watch sesame street.. PERIOD..
Cutting PBS ?!? Now who’s going to disseminate Leftist propaganda ? How will my children learn about ‘alternative’ lifestyles ?!?
Patriot. Don’t they already get enough of that in Kindergarten, elementary and all other grades of schooling up through and including college??
