Muppet March in Washington over possible cuts to PBS

Help

Hundreds of people have taken part in a demonstration in Washington DC in support of continued state funding for non-commercial broadcasting.

Some demonstrators appeared at the rally, named the Million Puppet March, dressed as characters from the children's programme Sesame Street, which is produced by the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS).

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has pledged to end federal funding for PBS if he wins Tuesday's election.
