    PBS is not a terrorist organization. It is not the Palestinian Bomber's Society. Perhaps you're confused.
    Amazing how libs and anti-American scum are in denial that Al-Jazeera is a terrorist propaganda network. Aiding a terrorist propaganda network is not something a tax payer funded network is supposed to do.

    Death to Sesame Street and NOVA!
    Are you saying that all those shows on PBS are so crappy that they can not survive without the aid of tax payers? IF those shows are really that good then they should be able to do well on privately owned tv stations. Tax payers shouldn't be aiding/subsidizing failing businesses.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    The reason why it got a bad wrap in the West was because it aired the Al Qaeda tapes, but that does not make Al Jazeera an accessory to terrorism, simply a functional journalist organization.

    HAHA!

    It's better because its international ... no

    Not everything on the station is propaganda - it's a news channel. It broadcasts to most of Europe as well as the Middle East (including many nations that are our allies), reaching over 130,000,000 viewers with its English broadcast alone. Your stance is as ridiculous as calling FOX a Republican propaganda network. If they show a few minutes of Al Jazeera, they're giving Americans a perspective they often don't get the chance to see, same as with the BBC or the major Israeli network. Do you have an issue with the latter, since it could be construed as Jewish propaganda?

    Sesame Street is far less "crappy" than just about any other children's show on TV, most of which are vaguely obscene and devoid of beneficial content. I'd rather not have very young kids being manipulated by commercials while they watch educational television they enjoy, and so I support PBS.

    Airing terrorist propaganda still makes them a terrorist propaganda network.

    If it is a really good show then it should survive on its own like any other television show/business without the aid of tax payer money.

    I'd rather not have very young kids being manipulated by commercials while they watch educational television they enjoy, and so I support PBS.
    Buy DVDs, use a TiVo, use a VCR(poor people's TiVo,you can record a show and hit pause during a commercial to leave out the commercials and play the video at a later time),use Youtube,download the shows from the internet(I am sure there are some websits where you can legally download children shows) or you can actually be a parent and monitor what your kids are watching by sitting in the same room as your children and change the channel when commercials or anything else objectionable comes on,TVs after all are not electronic baby sitters.

    BBC or the major Israeli network
    Those stations are not funded with my tax dollars,if they were I would have issue with them as well.

    I think it's funny, too, but is it supposed to be funny?
