The Muppets Strike Back at Fox!

In Fox’s world, nothing good is terribly safe. Even the lovable Muppets fall under withering attack.

Last month, Fox Business spent seven minutes (below) unraveling the left wing conspiracy in the latest Muppet movie. Then the Muppets, not taking things lying down, struck back. Appearing at a press conference in London last week, Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy rebutted Fox’s charges in one comic minute. It’s a pretty funny clip. But the best part is watching a major news outlet argue with puppets.

If you need something to make you feel better about the world, don’t miss Jim Henson’s 1969 primer on how to make your own puppets, using nothing other than household items. H/T SF Gate

    Okay, you know it’s bad when puppets are smarter than all the Fox News people.

  • Melissa says:

    Is Fox News really so desperate for stories that they have to come up with brain-washing muppets? There’s so many things in the country that are news worthy, not this. FAIL Fox News, FAIL.

  • JB says:

    Melissa, remember who Fox News’ target audience is – conservative voters who believe that many things in the entertainment and media world are left-wing conspiracies. Also remember that such stories get others to tune in just to see the next crazy thing Fox News said. Their ratings go up and Murdoch & Co. laugh all the way to the bank despite the complaints.

    Say what you want about Fox News, but it kills the other cable news networks in ratings. And that’s all that matters in the TV business.

    Fox is right on the money – This is a clear case of liberal brainwashing. Our kids should be taught rational conservative ways of thinking – creationism for example…
