Fred Rogers advocated for a national public broadcaster in May of 1969. Looks like it was yesterday….Imagine television funded by people like you and me without the drive for commercial revenue…..TV that wasn’t solely about advertising, that could take risks and create content that would ask the audience to think rather than simply be the magnet for product promotion. Of course, there is a place for Saturday morning cartoons (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!) and the latest toy commercials BUT public funding has a place too. Public funding….”seems like a terrible idea….not!” Fred Rogers asks you to open your mind. Interestingly, he seems to deeply dislike cartoons which are often violent and written by people who might not be the best for kids……Do you agree?
