The Best Argument Yet Against Public Television in the U.S.


Comes by way of an e-mail from a techie friend who works in the entertainment biz:

It always amuses me when I look at genre lists from public television stations in Europe. They have an incredible number of classications for various types of programs involving puppetry—drama with puppets, comedy with puppets, dance with puppets, etc. (I didn't make these up). So supporting public television can only mean one thing: more puppets. As such, I think I'll take the libertarian viewpoint on this issue.
