From NASA to Honey Boo Boo

How the Privatization of NASA’s The Learning Channel devolved into a for-profit channel pushing Honey Boo Boo

Romney in the first debate with Obama and the GOP for years have called for PBS to be defunded for many reasons but they hate it’s left wing educational content and the fact its financed by the tax payer (so they claim, I think they hate it because it tilts leftwards).

But a public funded example of PBS being privatized existed before. What can we learn from that?


Privatization took us from nature documentaries to Honey Boo Boo. Ain’t education wonderful?

  1. And the “learning” channels went bankrupt and the private sector took over. And the ratings for Honey Boo-Boo are great! The demographics who watch her show are sick and without morals or ethics! Look at the ages of the watchers–Tina Fey, Rosie O’Donnell, etc. Some role models.
