View Diary: The REAL Reason why Mitt Romney wants to cut funding for PBS (12 comments)

  •  Except that, they've wanted to defund PBS (5+ / 0-)

    for quite a while, right?

    And there have been plenty of moments that one could point to.

    Like how about the recent Bill Moyers show, The United States of ALEC?   If you want a Wisconsin connection, remember how WI Republicans launched an immediate attack on Dr. Bill Cronon's academic freedom when he dared to blogged about ALEC on his personal blog "Scholar as Citizen," after Walker dropped the bomb?  I'd argue that Moyers' work on ALEC was a lot bigger threat than "As Goes Janesville."

    But the move to defund PBS is no one moment.  It's more like a growing collection of stories, in addition to the arguments made in the spotlit diary, PBS Must Be Killed Because it Shows Government Works.
