Mitt Romney Says He'd Cut Money to PBS, Internet Explodes

Posted: Updated:

At last night's debate, Mitt Romney said one of the ways he'd cut government spending would be to eliminate funding for PBS (the home of Sesame Street).

Here's a clip from the Wall Street Journal.

The Internet exploded with response. There were 17,000 tweets per minute about Big Bird. Memes featuring Big Bird holding a "will work for food sign" popped up all over the place.

The Washington Post reported PBS got about $444 million dollars in the last budget year. That's some serious coin. Should PBS be cut? What would you cut out of the budget?
