fox business vs the muppets

Ugh.

Last week on Fox Business's Follow the Money, show host Eric Bolling spoke with the conservative Media Research Center's Dan Gainor about the new Muppets movie.

Here's what Gainor had to say about The Muppets' oil baron villain character Tex Richman:

"It's amazing how far the left will go just to manipulate your kids, to convince them, give the anti-corporate message."

"They've been doing it for decades. Hollywood, the left, the media, they hate the oil industry. They hate corporate America. And so you'll see all these movies attacking it, whether it was Cars 2, which was another kids' movie, the George Clooney movie Syriana, There Will Be Blood, all these movies attacking the oil industry, none of them reminding people what oil means for most people: fuel to light a hospital, heat your home, fuel an ambulance to get you to the hospital if you need that. And they don't want to tell that story."

More from Gainor:

"This is what they're teaching our kids. You wonder why we've got a bunch of Occupy Wall Street people walking around all around the country, they've been indoctrinated, literally, for years by this kind of stuff."

"Whether it was Captain Planet or Nickelodeon's Big Green Help, or The Day After Tomorrow, the Al Gore-influenced movie, all of that is what they're teaching, is that corporations is bad, the oil industry is bad, and ultimately what they're telling kids is what they told you in the movie The Matrix: that mankind is a virus on poor old mother Earth."

Look Gainor, if U weren't a fan of The Day After Tomorrow, then fine…but leave our Muppets out of this, please! The movie was absolutely adorable and good hearted!

Get over it!

    Bummer to pick on muppets, but he does have a point. It is too easy to hate the oil companies but not be willing to cut down on oil consumption. And Al Gore is a perfect example of that. He gets a prize for his work, but lives in a huge air conditioned house, travels extensively, and pays poorer nations to cut emissions for him. Maintenance of his lawns probably produces more emissions than a small village.

    A new low for Fox news - but wait there will probably be a whole new level of low later in the week so don't fret - Talk about the pot calling the kettle black - They will use anything to share their views with people in this country - Infact they feel it's their duty to shove their faulty opinions and agenda down everybodys throats - and if you dare challenge them they make it personal or try to discredit you- I suppose they think that if the wall street protesters sudenly disappear that all will be well with the world - How about instead of pepper spraying and brutalizing people we find out why the hell they are there and what they hope to accomplish instead of just listening to orginizations like fox that tell you your fellow citizens are not worthy of our time and attention - Fox is the most UnAmerican network going - I wish someoone would legally force them to drop the word news from their programming becasue they have never cared about the standards that have to be in place to present the news - Like the truth for example

    Muppet writers and the rest are apparently fed up like everyone else seems to be, so are attempting to instill a scintilla idea of a moral code into youth who aren't seeing much of any at all from the profit mongers, er, barons, at all levels. I lurve corporations, but only when they stand up and do it up in an upright manner. Holding a mirror up to society is a good and necessary thing. IF you don't, there's no checks and balances, kind of like it is NOW, with the corporate owned media see-no-evil of the last few years. If self examination is so painful, then die a painful end.

    I'm sorry but– his specific examples aside– he's absolutely right. The Left cannot win by argument and reason. They realized this long ago and so set off to capitalize on what is called the "forming institutions" of society– the media, film and television, and the educational system. If you can control how people think, and control the information people are given, you can simply ban certain subjects from discussion (which we've done on everything from global warming to crime to immigration) and then you do not have to debate at all. Their grip on the media has started to slip– less to do with the existence of Fox than with the Internet– but they have a tight hold on film and tv and the educational system. It's part of the reason my both are so decayed at this point.

    It's The Muppets. It isn't going to sway anyone to the left or the right, it's meant to be FUN. DO POLITICIANS REMEMBER FUN? Oil tycoons are classic villains. Get over it!

    I don't care what anyone says… I LOVE the day after tomorrow.

    HILARIOUS! Yeah Hollywood is so against corporate America, so much so that in EVERY movie, or TV show you see nowadays conveniently has product placement. Its so blatant its annoying.

    Re: alrightalright – "How about instead of pepper spraying and brutalizing people we find out why the hell they are there and what they hope to accomplish instead of just listening to orginizations like fox that tell you your fellow citizens are not worthy of our time and attention"

    Seriously? In between rapes, murders, drug abuse, fighting and almost every other illegal activity, OWS protesters WERE asked and no one knew WTF they were there for. Share a beer, bang on drums? They should have been camped out at the White House.

    "Fox is the most UnAmerican network going - I wish someoone would legally force them to drop the word news from their programming becasue they have never cared about the standards that have to be in place to present the news - Like the truth for example"

    Again, seriously? Have you ever watched FOX News? They are simply trying to figure out what the hell BO's plan is for this country. BO plays more golf than Tiger Woods. Keep watching MSNBC and CBS and you'll grow up to be a star on Jerry Springer's show one day. Change you can believe in.
