During the debate, the Republican challenger's comment about cutting funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting caught many people off guard.
Tom New, the creative services director at WQLN, thinks Romney was speaking more about the size of government then necessarily cutting funding for CPB.
"I think he was really speaking more towards a political philosophy of a small government," New said. "PBS was used as an example as well as big bird mostly because Jim Lehrer was in the room."
According to Politico, CPB was given $444.1 million during the 2012 fiscal year.
