This is an amazing video of Fred Rogers testifying before Congress in support of the Public Broadcasting budget on May 1, 1969. He softens a very tough Rhode Island Senator whom I remember from my days in the Ocean State, Sen. John Pastore, who begins, “All right Rogers, you’ve got the floor.”
By the end of the encounter, the good senator is singing a different tune. I heard this today on a new CBC Podcast, Search Engine, which looks like it will be a terrific addition to my impossibly long list of podcasts on my iTunes Directory.
