CNN: Mitt Romney Doubles Down on Big Bird

Speaking with Wolf Blitzer on CNN today, Mitt Romney stood by his debate promise to eliminate federal funding for PBS, claiming that Sesame Street, like CNN, would survive just fine as a fully private enterprise.
It's an apt comparison, but not for the reasons Romney suggests. As most people, including Wolf Blitzer no doubt know, CNN isn't doing just fine. CNN's mission to stay mostly non-partisan has consistently landed the network far behind Fox News and MSNBC in the ratings. The need to compete with its more openly biased competitors has forced CNN to resort to gimmicks that PBS or NPR News currently don't need to stoop to. The funding that public broadcasting receives is essential precisely because it helps free its programming from the contraints of ratings-obsessed media.
Now, I can agree with Mitt Romney that the American people are probably more interested in saving jobs than saving Big Bird. But he's the one who brought it up. And as long as Romney sticks by this idea that it's worth sacrificing the immense value of PBS for the tiny fraction of the federal budget we would save, we can't just let it go.
