Bush Battles Bunny


Several local public broadcasting stations may defy the Bush administration and PBS and air an episode of the animated children's series Postcards from Buster that features an animated bunny visiting a real family headed by a lesbian couple, the Los Angeles Times reported today (Friday). Earlier this week, the program was denounced by the Department of Education's new secretary, Margaret Spellings, who said that the Department's "purpose in funding this programming certainly was not to introduce this kind of subject matter to children, particularly through the powerful and intimate medium of television." PBS subsequently announced that it would not distribute the episode, but denied that the education secretary's views played a role in its decision. WGBH-TV in Boston, which produces the Postcards from Buster series that includes the controversial episode, said that it plans to air it, pointing out that a condition of the government funding was that the program expose children to cultural diversity. The Times said that other stations will decide whether to run the episode after previewing it





First Tinky-Winky carries a purse, Sponge-Bob promotes homosexuality and now this bunny visits a Lesbian couple family.

Thank good my world is protected from viewing these horrors

1. I think the Bush admin should worry about protecting us from Al-Q
I'll decide what I want to watch on TV, and parents of little children can decide what they want to watch

2. Seriously, why aren't they banning old Bugs Bunny cartoons?
Crossdressing. Kissing Elmer Fudd.

Bugs was a flaming queen by their standards (I love it that he always used a southern drawl when doing the crossdressing).

3. PBS' decision not to distribute the episode was very disappointing.
