$500M of US taxpayer dollars goes to fund Liberals' PBS. Corporate donations ( shakedown dollars), philanthropy money, and Sesame Street royalties are more than sufficient for the elitists at PBS to keep their lifestyle. Big Bird and Elmo do not need $500M of US taxpayer money. Mickey and Donald don't. Why should Big Bird and Elmo? Plus, Mickey and Donald do not get shakedown corporate dollars or donations from those philanthropists that are on board with the Disney Agenda.
