So Long Sesame Street

From TVWeek:

President Bush is reopening the fight over government support of public television, unveiling a 2007 government fiscal year budget that would cut federal funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting by nearly 25 percent.

A spokeswoman for PBS said that the cuts would be “disastrous” for public TV stations.

“For PBS, it could mean the end of our ability to support some of the most treasured educational children’s series and primetime icons to which CPB funding contributes,” said Lea Sloan, VP-communications.
