For the record, Romney was (once again) wrong. Federal tax dollars do NOT go to PBS. Rather, they go to the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and, from there, to individual member stations such as our own KHET here in Hawaii.
And to put this non-issue into perspective, those federal dollars are less than 1/100th of one percent of the federal budget. And this is how Romney is going to tackle the federal deficit?
I'm a long-time resident of Hawaii, moving here in 1962. After working in local government, I was the owner of a Honolulu-based advertising agency for 20 years, specializing in creating media and strategy for numerous political campaigns. I'm now retired, but do some freelance writing, much of which is about train travel.
