Filmmaker Ken Burns in his recent interview mocked Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney calling his proposal to cut PBS funding ‘ridiculous’.
‘The Corporation for Public Broadcasting is one one-hundredth of one percent of our federal budget. This is a man, Mitt Romney, who knows what things cost but doesn't know their value,’he said.
‘This is an underfunded network...that stitches together red states as well as blue states. That's supported by red states as well as blue states. That's responsible for the best children's, the best science, the best nature, the best public affairs and the best history on the dial. And he wants to get rid of it?
‘It's ridiculous,’ he added.
Ken has produced four documentaries for PBS, including the upcoming documentary named ‘The Dust Bowl’ in which he mocks Romney, describing him as ‘a guy who looks like a little man on the wedding cake.’
