PBS used to be great for children. There were days when their broadcasting was really worthwhile and valuable for children.
I want to show you a clip of Mr. Rogers testifying before Congress about the importance of PBS. It’s something that makes me cry every time I see it. It’s amazing to see someone who loves educating and helping children so much, and it makes me wonder whether PBS can ever get back on track.
In recent years, PBS has begun introducing politics to its shows – and I wonder whether it’s possible to ever return to the era of positive broadcasting for children.
