Okay this is an interesting topic to me esp with the big explosion on Facebook and the converstaions on the News channels andf all. Plus now it seems Big Bird has now become a popular Halloween costume.
Is PBS becoming obsolote? With cable and the explosion of different types of channels that range from different specialties. Is PBS really not needed anymore? BBC can be found for the Englis/British programing. Nickalodeon etc. And I will be honest I did try to get my kids to watch Sesame Street growing up but they prefered Blues Clues. And alot of the programs I see on PBS are cartoons anyway now. And no more Mr. Rodgers and well we can forget Barney (although my oldest used to love him )
. And lets face it the specials PBS has only seem to come up when the station has fundraising drive so we get multiple interupptions any way.
So again is PBS no longer needed. Is it worth not funding them any more?
I am serious because this converstaion has struck a cord with me. I am not saying it is the final answer in my vote. Just as a whole I wonder.
