    'Sesame Street' Ombudsman Says Fox News Parody 'Should Have Been Resisted' - FOXNews.com

    According to this article grouches weren't happy with GNN so they turned to something "grouchier" called Pox News. Now the simularity between Pox and Fox could be chalked up to creative coincidence but wouldn't a grouch who wants to find a grouchier news network go and find one called More Grouchier News Network? That would make more sense but they chose "POX" which happens to rhyme with Fox news which attracts a lot of conservatives.

    Now the implication here is that they are comparing conservatives to grouches that (like the grouches who were tired of GNN) fled CNN for something even more conservative or grouchier like Fox news.

    Some might say that this is not a big deal and in many ways it is not but the fact that this appears on a children's show and on state funded television makes it a dangerous bit of state propaganda that assaults a certain political view that it does not want you to have. This could be "crazy" but when has Sesame Street ever did a similar skit involving politics or anything involving real life. Most of its show's skits revolve around the happenings and politics of the fictional world of Sesame Street and never once attempted go outside that setting yet the writers felt the need to write their viewpoint of real life politics into an influential children's skit.

    We must now question the motives of the writers about why they decided to spend their time creating this. It could be just sport and but if so why not put a more likeable character into the skit such as Big Bird or the Cookie monster. They chose an unlikable character to associate conservatives with and this has an affect on the decision these children will have to make about what political beliefs they will live by when they get older. Do they want to be a grouch (conservative) or do they want to emulate one of the "cool" people (liberal) that their favorite singers claim to be.

    More than likely, they will always choose to be a likable person and assume the political leanings that likable people have and that will be liberal. This is the social trap that liberals have set conservatives throughout the years. They have turned being conservative into being someone of unlikable character. They pick the worst examples of conservatives such as any who are racist (another unlikable characteristic) while hiding liberals who are equally racist.

    Conservative characters in the entertainment world are portrayed as money hungry and indifferent to their fellow man and conservatives who buck this trend such as Ronald Reagan or Sarah Palin are often viciously attacked by the media by endless articles about them because after all the press Gov. Palin gets (who isn't even involved in politics) I would think she is the world itself where writers feel compelled to spend their energies on writing about one person yet neglecting other events such as the massacre in Texas (has that got as much press as Gov. Palin?).

    This is why grouches complain that news isn't grouch enough so they turn to a more grouchier new network where grouch is a codeword for conservativism.

    I am not sure but I don't think this is the first time they have parodied a news channel or news anchor.

    So I watched the clip, not saying it should be on kids television but they didn't paint either side in a good light. One channel (MSNBC) is a bunch of ass kissers to the King and Queen aka Obama, so the lady changes the channel to Pox News a trashier channel, they live in a trash can, they like trash.

    Liberoidals are all stupid douches.

    Sorry if the glaring stupidity in the OP failed to make me grouchy. :razz:
