OK Governor Stitt Vetoed Bill for State’s PBS Funding; Accuses Station of “Indoctrinating Young Children”

Objectivity 4.8 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.8

Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt (R) defended his decision to veto a bill that would have funded operations of the state’s PBS station through 2026, accusing the station of indoctrinating young children. “The big, big question is why are we spending taxpayer dollars to prop up or compete with the private sector and run television stations? And then when you go through all of the programing that’s happening and the indoctrination and over-sexualization of our children, it’s just really problematic, and it doesn’t line up with Oklahoma values,” Stitt told Fox News Digital.  Last week, Stitt also banned all sex reassignment procedures for minors in the state, including irreversible gender transition surgeries and hormone therapies.
