Once again, President Bush is trying to cripple the public broadcasting system by slashing its funding.
I just signed a petition to Congress to reject these proposed cuts, and I hope you will too.
Mr. Rogers would be proud of you.
In 1969, Richard Nixon attempted to cut PBS funding by 50%. A senate hearing chaired by “hatchetman” Senator John Pastori couldn’t push it through as long as there was someone like Fred Rogers to speak for at least some of the reasons that public broadcasting is important.
