NEW YORK – Lovable Elmo Monster, everybody’s favorite Muppet with the big, bright eyes and squeaky high voice, has been among the worst casualties of the budget cuts made necessary by Sesame (formerly Children’s Television) Workshop’s loss of federal funding. The once-chipper monster has become glum, dyed his fur black, and pierced his face in multiple places since funding for the letter L was withdrawn.
“Emo no like happiness any more,” he said, breaking into a mournful rendition of, “Can You Te’ Me How to Get Away from Sesame Street?”
WASHINGTON – Responding to perceived listener need, National Public Radio (NPR) today released Pledge, an iPhone and Android app that allows dedicated listeners to pledge to their local NPR station with the press of a single button.
