Education Secretary in Flap Over PBS Bunny

The new Secretary of Education and a cartoon rabbit are at the center of a controversy over censorship. Did a letter from Secretary Margaret Spellings prompt PBS to pull a children's program that indirectly referred to homosexuality? The bunny in question is Buster, the star of the children's show Postcards from Buster.

Guests:

Ben Feller, education reporter, the Associated Press

Wayne Godwin, Chief Operating Officer, PBS
