Kermit and Miss Piggy Prove Children’s Characters Have More Gravitas Than Fox News

I saw this via the good folks at Addicting Info — the Muppets have deftly responded to Fox News. This began, of course, with Eric Bolling of Fox Business calling the Muppets leftist propagandists for a negative portrayal of an oil tycoon in their latest movie. Apparently Kermit and Miss Piggy possess the kind of pugnacious PR acumen that most children’s characters lack (I’m looking in your direction Tinky Winky…just sitting there while Jerry Falwell attacked your sexuality) and dropped the snark on Bolling in a press conference.

Remember the important thing about this is that felt puppets are coming off as the serious, adult alternative to a major news institution.
