Nontroversy Of The Week: The Muppets Vs. Fox News



From the video's description:
Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy hit back at Fox News during a UK press conference following the London Premiere of their new film. Fox had publically criticized the film for supposedly pushing a 'dangerous liberal agenda' at kids.
The Fox criticism to which the video refers can be found in a December 2011 article at the Huffington Post, as well as video at Media Matters:



Ugh.

Look, I took my kids to see The Muppets over the holidays and anyone who thinks that it is anything other than pure candy-coated entertainment needs to take a long vacation. Relax. Breathe in, breathe out.

I'm not saying that "liberal Hollywood" doesn't exist (gah), but the notion that Jim Henson's creations are trying to brainwash your children is, well, insane.

Dude. It's a f**kin' movie. With puppets.

Get a grip.
