While Fox News may be used to taking a never-ending beating from the liberal folks at CNN and MSNBC, you can bet they were not expecting a jab from venerable kids favorite, Sesame Street.
But thats just what happened.
Sesame Street, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary tomorrow with a visit from Michelle Obama, recently reaired an episode from a couple years ago - when the 2008 presidential election was in full swing - that has Oscar the Grouch launching his own television new channel called GNN - Grouchy News Network.
After an atypical lighthearted broadcast, Grundgetta, a female Muppet viewer, calls to complain that the content was not offensive enough From now on, Im watching Pox News, she says. Now theres a trashy news show.

Remember, the Visitors are our friends and reporters should show some respect.
Indoctrinate the kiddies. Was this Michelle’s idea?
My kids stopped watching ‘Street’ long ago after we rented an Elmo special about ‘families’. Of course...there were 2 ‘daddies’.
SS has always been liberal as hell anyway with their message.
We can return the favor by not buying a single Children’s Television Workshop toy or game.
Socialist puppets that hate Fox News? Is that Sesame Street or Pennsylvania Avenue?
seems they were doing a parody of CNN also. Nonetheless, I agree the grouches are serious pain-deservers.
And it won’t be too long before they are having one of their telethons to raise our money.
We had 8 years of Republican Presidencies and several budgets that went through Republican-controlled committees. Funding for PBS not only wasn’t cut back, it grew. That’s their way of saying thanks.
“Indoctrinate the kiddies.”
Ah-hum - This HAS BEEN HAPPENING for a long time!
What did you expect? It was conceived by a queer.

I remember that photo of her sitting in Europe next to French President Sarkozy's fashion model wife with a nasty snarling sneer pasted on her mug. Mish looked like she was about to reach around behind herself and fling a mitt full of poop at Mme. Sarkozy.
Mme. Sarkozy is drop-dead gorgeous. Michelle has the perpetual scowl of an ugly soul.
We stopped after I found my kids were too overhyped after seeing it.
