-- find out if you got anything wrong so far I'm guessing we did for that we go to Tom salute I'm sure you have got to look at my notes please do.
-- okay the first story of Romney.
PBS big -- etc.
First of all I wanna just -- Gavin numbers Gavin do you think 45 million what -- gross that -- 2010 and that was just one of their many sources of income that year OK well let's take a look at their income 44 million last year.
For merchandise royalties that's just.
Royalties on things like the tickle me Elmo etc.
Thirty million from content distribution one assumes that selling there television rights -- wrestling -- A total of -- 122 million in revenue not including the government grants.
122 million last year.
And it was the same with the teachers when they did did have that protests in Madison people started going -- -- how much did they making him when you get two months off.
Well I didn't have been sixty bucks and -- -- Well to be fair to these teachers and they said -- they were on strike not four not because of the money.
But they did not like this idea of rating teachers merit pay they were netstat yeah yeah forbid yeah -- -- -- people don't like spotlights and I think that Sesame Street is trying to tell us that very subtly.
Well I think that you Randy you said they -- rights.
There are nonpartisan.
Organization this is actually getting to the the -- That did that they objected to be the Obama -- -- you said that they are right there nonpartisan.
And they shouldn't be featured in a political -- so what they're non partisan the wind is nonpartisan.
And doesn't stop -- from putting the wind in his yeah -- a.
That's a very valid points on the -- what I said things had to.
That they aren't that they have held themselves out that way and they asked them to take down -- that that's the extent of it I don't think that they have a right to.
If they filed a lawsuit they may not have a claim to take it down but they're just.
I think putting it out there in the -- like that but we're not supporting one candidate over another.
Although they probably shouldn't get.
We -- big big -- -- supporting anyone either right -- couldn't get away with that but you know people can put.
Then in their ads that they want Romney can put big burden and that if he wants to -- but Thomas she just said she's not saying that the Obama campaign can't do it -- saying that this sesame foundation -- whatever they're called.
Ask them not to follow Andy you sound like you're pretty good at all but I think that's -- yeah I'm blonde pretty good at listening to what you just said -- -- -- -- and that's what you have to do when he asked topic will it look like gosh it's so demand I think that aren't that.
I wanna actually I have a theory that I wanna get out right now and I think -- you said that today he was.
Foolish to speak of big bird -- it was a mistake of his.
I think he was actually very crafty.
Could can we get AF frank you have the photos I want to bring up the photo that's in the press all week you see this in every major newspaper on all the web site.
It's Romney and big bird okay now.
Let me tell you -- theory he brought -- big -- on purpose instead of just saying PBS saying I'm gonna -- on PBS.
Because if he had had said I want to defund PBS and he didn't specify big bird you know -- the press would have done they would put this photo -- there.
It would have been hotly against -- model.
He's cuter he's smaller makes Romney -- -- that was very crafty and I think his guys back in Boston there thought that -- what do you think -- I'm gonna disagree with you Tom I don't -- it was in this statement I think that if he could take big bird out of that debate he would do that in -- -- can -- you are naive he plans everything he's Mitt Romney because.
-- that surprising pick up Bert and Ernie because -- questions around their relationship and there are no question broader relationship -- they are friends.
I'm guessing you're hearing are you -- my partner and what is big.
-- -- -- Is ever did a tall lesbian being learned is that C hey I'm your own child the bird.
Actually this is the role he plays well yes and I actually just to get controversial you described President Obama.
As being among other things he described as being isolated you want to take back that charged rhetoric.
-- -- -- -- -- And I had then Tom Cruise doesn't even know that -- the laughing -- and he doesn't know about that Scientology's.
For not bars.
Because he's kept in this little bubble so he's just walking through like going to -- -- great film.
Think I -- an awesome yeah weird -- yeah.
-- and I think Obama is the same way so when people insult him it's it's a total slap in the face like.
Then Arizona governor when when she wrote that little what was that a third of a paragraph -- -- but he couldn't handle he's not used to being criticized.
That's why he likes doing speeches and being on the view.
All right do you wanna stick with the racially charged -- country yeah.
Isolation follow me isolation and small spaces small apartments.
Public housing homeless people thought well regulated realize that -- -- my daughter and so sorry yeah ha ha ha.
What's a better word had mocha colored it.
David K that's good you know I'm not Powell and others and that's -- it.
It -- I don't always listed on the court -- You -- Obama that he's being criticized he's been criticized pretty hard for the last four years I think it's just that day birdies what we know.
They criticized by Republicans and -- salt -- the mainstream a look at.
-- Obama forget I forget the media.
And forgetting that there aren't I -- tired I heard I have heard of a media -- that does occasionally criticize Obama the names escaping me but that -- He's been beaten criticized by -- Congress might I -- by the senate majority don't have -- -- here and you looked everywhere I was he had been.
00 god yeah.
Hours column name in news here latter day.
And he actually wasn't meant to say was Obama has been heavily criticized for the past four days.
Yeah yeah yeah I -- I mean if he's if he's so thoroughly criticize where is Libya as you said before.
Why now why does everyone and LA think fit and unemployment is going great.
No I mean nothing you've not criticized by the press I agree with that it just but I think.
He had been good guys quietly by I don't know he's added but I live very little which is why -- so how -- Whenever I face any opposition at all.
OK let's take a look at the next story the tracking of students of -- you you gave me a little job to do you want me to check into the rights of students.
Broadly it's actually there's a lot of information on line 96 and I tinker V Des Moines school district.
They said that students to not shed their constitutional rights at the schoolhouse gate saying he very much -- He's -- -- -- anymore so that's a.
But it does seem to be a gray area even the ACLU.
Said that you know it says on there the page do I have the right to privacy at -- it says yes and no.
And then to actually says hey guys this -- school not prison.
I think that answer yes -- -- it's right and that's our Supreme Court said.
You have diminished rights and that went to whether or not school officials could open -- lockers.
With your accent probable cause we note please keep going your car unless they have probable cause to believe he committed a crime.
However in the schools because of the children in a whole number of other reasons.
School officials can open locker something sort of thinking that you committed a crime why didn't -- -- all this Russert you know every.
I didn't remember the name of the -- up some -- -- -- behind when -- case.
OK Dennis you said this is no big deal we all had these tags that work.
If you you have -- -- on from for Fox News we all have IDs and when you bags that they know what employees going through what doorway front Ellen's second all if you want to challenge me on national television.
You take off your jogging suit -- -- This is business.
Whether from a fine retail yeah out back.
-- -- -- maybe you gotta gotta love this we can't even explore that the can of worms with huge breath that Gavin opened up an -- of why not -- Gavin.
I can't you.
I wanted to do some checking on this about the they the funding of breast cancer but you made a huge claim that breast cancer doesn't need any funding and I was unable to -- to get to -- side's gonna -- and I believe that went out there and either.
-- if you don't think breast cancer research is doing well.
Go look at the size of the house like chemist who's remotely associated with the field.
Because big box sized count.
-- -- that's proven absolutely nothing.
-- it's a little tiny anecdotal piece of evidence that crews are much bigger picture until they cure for breast cancer and they need the funding well -- we're not we get an education much money why do you think that maybe they wouldn't say yes thank you you've porn we're happy to have the phone I agree a 101 wet -- didn't do that it's about fashion it's about me feeling good about myself and meet the needs we're excited what that -- -- keep using a boot what does that mean.
A boot is a northern term meaning revolving around the OK -- -- done back to you our thanks a lot top counter.
