Hi. Kevin Long here. I don't work here, but I'm pinch-hitting for Mama Fisi, who was supposed to have an article up but had some unavoidable behind-the-scenes stuff, and couldn't make the deadline.
Back during the presidential debate, our party's unfathomably bad choice for the candidate basically made it be known that, if elected, he'd shut down PBS. This is something we've heard again and again over the last 20 years from both parties. Even the Simpsons has commented on how the increasing plethora of education-based cable channels makes PBS basically irrelevant.
This is bunk.
