    Mr. Rogers was not necessarily evil, but he was undeniably a naive idiot.

    His son and daughter in law are friends of mine. This is really ridiculous. Beyond ridiculous. Mr. Rogers was not an evil man. Mr. Rogers was the son of one of the founders of RCA Victrola. His father was the R in the RCA. When Mr. Rogers father died the entire city came out to line the streets and bid him farewell - he was known as a generous man who paid the way for many waitresses and others in the community to go to college.

    He was fabulously wealthy and owned a 200 yr old home in Nantucket. His sons were very humble men, not flashy, neither was Mr. Rogers, he drove a Chevy Cavalier - I saw it. The problem with Fox News is that they feel they are justified in reporting such lies under the guise of entertainment. It is bitterly cruel and my sympathy goes out to his family and his especially his wife who certainly doesn't need to learn of such nonsense. Very trashy. Fox has no class. - Jeri

    No no no you don't.

    The "R" in RCA is for "radio". Radio Corporation of America. Not "Rogers".

    Are you thinking of the Canadian media company?

    Mr. Rogers was neither evil or naïve.

    He was however, a stone cold killer in the Vietman War, a sharpshooter and a hero. Somethings like 26 kills.

    Fox is kidding when they call him an evil man. It is simply a way of pointing out that his genuine efforts to make kids feel good about themselves may have instead made them feel entitled.

    Mr. Rogers was a great man.

    Internet legend.


    He wasn't a secret military killer, just a man of God with a degree in Music and a lifetime career in broadcast television.
