Of course, both the article and the Governor miss the point. Why is the Gooferment subsidizing a TV network? Does anyone think that Sesame Street can’t get on a network without the Gooferment money?
If the Taxpayers of Oklahoma want to subsidize PBS, then let them VOLUNTARILY contribute to the PBS negations that run regularly.
