Can’t attend today’s Million Puppet March? No worries, the Washington, D.C., event is being streamed online. There’s also a “global tweet” at 2 p.m. Eastern, “I support continued funding of public broadcasting #pubmedia #MPM2012.”
The event, which kicks off at 10 a.m., is in response to Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s repeated promises to defund the system if he is elected. Speakers at the rally include Craig Aaron, president of media reform group Free Press.
