Former “Reading Rainbow” host LeVar Burton said Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney “targeted” America’s children by vowing to defund the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) during last week’s presidential debate.

“I am personally outraged that any serious contender for the White House would target as part of his campaign the children of America in this fashion,” said Burton, who hosted the PBS children’s program “Reading Rainbow” from 1983 to 2005.

Burton, who played Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge on “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” also claimed PBS is “responsible” for advancing education in the United States.
