Seseme Street??? Really??? (Sigh...)
Two years ago Seseme Street did a skit where the punch line involved a statement that some character would rather watch a phoney news station (that rhymes with fox) because it was the real "trash news" (instead of Oscar's news program to which it was being compared)...The right wing is now claiming that the administrations public disagreement with fox news is carrying over into children's programing, and that seseme street is in cahoots with the dems to try to indoctrinate our children...The skit was rerun recently...but is, in fact, two years old...please help me understand what can be gained by attacking a decades old FANTASTIC program for children...very YOUNG children, who typically know nothing of politics, and wouldn't recognize this as a politically relevant joke if it jumped out of their television sets and started dancing around their living rooms...Isn't all of this fear-mongering and conspiracy touting getting exhausting to everyone...I don't know how much more I can stomach!
