As Governor, Romney Helped To Fund PBS
Big Bird would be happy if the current Mitt Romney were the same as Governor Mitt Romney.
According to the Boston Globe, he happened to have helped them in the past significantly.
While as governor of Massachusetts, Romney signed a bill that created funding for WGBH (pictured) and other companies that create shows that air on public television.
Boston public television giant WGBH received $4.2 million from the state’s film tax credit program last year alone for programs like “American Experience,” “Antiques Roadshow,” and “Nova.” And Watertown animation studio Soup2Nuts received about $300,000 in subsidies last year, mostly for the PBS series “WordGirl.”
