...and why its important to monitor what your children are indoctrinated with on TV!

No big surprises here, but interesting to see it all spelled out so clearly and admitted to by the TV execs!

"Sesame Street, with its loveable and fuzzy characters, is really a mouthpiece for the left’s agenda. That’s the conclusion of author Ben Shapiro, who after interviewing hundreds of industry insiders found that many of Hollywood’s most popular shows, including the popular kids program, are inundated with secret political messages. And he got top executives to admit it."

"Shapiro’s new book, “Primetime Propaganda: The True Hollywood Story of How the Left Took Over Your TV,” according to it’s description “is the story—told in their own words—of how television has been used over the past sixty years by Hollywood writers, producers, actors, and executives to promote their liberal ideals, to push the envelope on social and political issues, and to shape America in their own leftist image.”

Muppets are more endearing than the Right's sockpuppets.

Isn't Skippy known as Pelosi's Sock Puppet though? He obediently pushed the obamacare and "stimulus" through for her last year.

Sesame Street is obviously communist propaganda. I mean just look at this!

I don't think we should fund PBS or planned parenthood, but we also shouldn't fund oil companies either.
