Posted on 10/09/2012 9:11:20 AM PDT by Perdogg
Sesame Workshop is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization and we do not endorse candidates or participate in political campaigns. We have approved no campaign ads, and as is our general practice, have requested that the ad be taken down.
Obozo has angered the big yellow bird.
He had better cease before bird sends in Snuffleupugus the Enforcer!
Wait till team obama hears about this. I bet they threaten to cut their funding...oh wait... nevermind...
Translation: They don’t want this to escalate to the point where Romney or Ryan put out a soundbyte that tells the public how much they are making on merchandising!
If only that were true.
Otherwise, Oscar is telling Bird to shut up before he blows their easy gig.
haha they stepped in it didn’t they. dumb O.
First AARP, then Big Bird.
I wonder if Biden will ask Romney to stop quoting him.
sure.. they’ll comply, just like the complied with NBC when they asked on Friday to remove their footage from an ad that has been running for the last five days.
>Michelle Obama and Jill Biden team up with Sesame Street
Michelle Obama and Jill Biden, wife of Vice-President Joe Biden, teamed up with Rosita and Elmo when they visited Sesame Street as part of the White House’s ‘Joining Forces’ Initiative in New York.
Sesame Workshop did not run the ad, 0bama did. If Sesame Workshop ran the ad, they would be in trouble with the IRS. In fact, even though they didn’t run the ad, they probably had to ask that the ad be pulled in order to maintain their tax exempt status, which they have done.
No tax consequences here for Big Bird.
If I remember correctly Big bird and the basket bunch gave Moochelle a real hard time that episode. Have a look.
LOL Big Bird throws Obama under the bus.
If people on FR have a beef with PBS for its programming or even its very existence, then fine...make your point, campaign for change. But its utterly reprehensible to slap them when they actually do the right thing. Surely that is the kind of behavior we should be applauding?
Check out #7 and #13 on this thread...
I want to see big Bird’s tax returns.
