Power to the Puppets! Million Puppet March Takes the Streets of D.C. in Support of PBS

Hundreds of puppets (and puppeteers) took the streets of Washington D.C. in support of public broadcasting stations.

The Million Puppet March — a political rally against Mitt Romney’s debate remarks about Big Bird and cutting funding to public television — draw hundreds of PBS supporters to the State Capitol.

Protesters met at Lincoln Park and marched to the Capitol Reflecting Pool. 
 

There were Big Birds, Kermits, Elmos, and Miss Piggies in attendance, along with some humans holding signs like “Puppets for Peace” and “Keep Your Mitts Off Big Bird.” As the crowd ran in the streets they chanted:



Power to the puppets! We can save the Muppets!”
Whose street? Sesame Street!”
What do we want? Cookies! When do we want them? Now!”
EL-MO! We won’t go!”

We’re just making it clear that public media matters, and it’s something that we want to see supported and we still want to see federal funding of,” said co-organizer Michael Bellavia. 


 
According to CNN, PBS is partially funded through the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, which receives about $450 million a year -- a fraction of this year's $3.5 trillion federal government spending. "Sesame Street" is produced by Sesame Workshop, which says 93% of its costs are funded by corporate sponsors and licensing.

"I'm sorry, Jim, I'm going to stop the subsidy to PBS," Romney said to Jim Lehrer, who moderated the first debate and anchors "PBS Newshour."

"I'm going to stop other things. I like PBS, I love Big Bird," he said. "Actually like you, too. But I'm not going to -- I'm not going to keep on spending money on things to borrow money from China to pay for."
