This week Fox News decided they’d had enough of the Muppets influencing our children.
“It’s amazing how far the left will go just to manipulate your kids, to convince them, give the anti-corporate message,” Eric Bolling said on the Fox Business program Follow The Money. He was of course talking about the plot behind the latest Muppet movie in which an evil oil baron was threatening to shut the Muppets down forever.
It wasn’t just the Muppets however that he took issue with. He also attacked Cars 2, ‘Captain Planet’ and Nickelodeon’s ‘Big Green Help’. He said “all of that is what they’re teaching, is that corporations are bad, the oil industry is bad, and ultimately what they’re telling kids is what they told you in the movie ‘The Matrix’: that mankind is a virus on poor old mother Earth.”
What do you think? Are the Muppets communists? Or has Fox blown something into something it’s not?
