Think of the children!

In the Telegraph today: “Sesame Street and Friends ‘pumping out left wing messages’

Oh man, what horrible, depraved messages was Sesame Street pumping out?

One of the founders of Sesame Street told [Ben Shapiro] that the show had sought to address how conflict could be resolved peacefully after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

OH MY GOD. A CHILDREN’S SHOW TELLING CHILDREN TO SETTLE CONFLICTS PEACEFULLY INSTEAD OF BEATING EACH OTHER UP? THAT COULD ONLY BE LEFT WING BIAS.

Insiders also told him that the Korean War medical comedy MASH promoted pacifism

No shit.

(There is one other substantive claim of left-wing bias –  that Sesame Street once parodied Fox News as “Pox News”, and described it as “trashy”, except that the actual context of the scene was that it was a parody of CNN – the “all grouchy, all disgustin’, all yucky” Grouch News Network – starring the dustbin dwelling Grouch. Surely that’s anti-CNN bias as much as anti-Fox bias? And no, they never explain the left wing bias in Friends)

    Wow, the comments on that one. Madness. Not even any attempt to question the article, just take it all at face value. Frightening that these people influence government thinking.
