Since Mitt Romney’s predictable pathetic pandering to Fox News-watching idiots about doing away with PBS in the presidential debate last week, an extraordinary clip of Fred Rogers passionately defending the mission of PBS before the Senate Subcommittee on Communications in 1969 has gone viral. Rogers was there hoping to protect Public Broadcasting from draconian spending cuts proposed by Richard Nixon.

From the reaction he got, I think he succeeded in his mission.
