Wait wait, oil companies need that money to be profitable unlike PBS right, righties???
It's worth debating whether or not subsidies to the oil industry are worthy of continuation, but there's no such debate about the $8 million that goes to Sesame Street. There's no reasonable argument for why we should be borrowing money from China to prop up a show like that when (a) it could probably stand alone and (b) there are numerous other privately funded alternatives anyway.
