BREAKING: Poll - 7% think PBS spending makes up HALF of all Federal Spending. [View all]

Polling data says 7% of the American public actually believes that
the Corporation for Public Broadcasting makes up OVER 50% of all
federal government spending.


An amazing 22% believe that
Public Broadcasting accounts for ten percent or more of all
federal government spending.

See question number 39.

(The actual number is 0.012% of 2011's federal spending, by the way)

(What a sad commentary of the state of our Union).
