big bird is a billionaire

according to a new york times poll, 30% of americans believed that PBS received more than 5% of the united states budget. 5% is $131 BILLION dollars. i don’t know the age, color, size or political affiliation of these people, but that is pretty damn scary. just sort of fits in with the theme of inadequately-educated americans.
