Big Bird

Projected US Budget (FY 2013) : $3.8 trillion

Projected FY 2013 deficit: $1.3 trillion

Projected federal spending on public broadcasting (FY 2013) : $444 million

% of federal budget devoted to public media: .01% (one one-hundredth of one percent)

That’s less than $2 per year from each American.
