Fox Panel Attacks Sesame Street For Wanting To Educate Children About Poverty

As Nicole posted here earlier this week, Sesame Street has decided to add a new character to educate children about food insecurity. Apparently that was terribly upsetting to the panelists Andrea Tantaros, Eric Bolling, Greg Gutfeld and Kimberly Guilfoyle on Fox's The Five, which replaced Glenn Beck's show on their evening lineup.

As Nicole posted here earlier this week, Sesame Street has decided to add a new character to educate children about food insecurity. Apparently that was terribly upsetting to the panelists Andrea Tantaros, Eric Bolling, Greg Gutfeld and Kimberly Guilfoyle on Fox's The Five, which replaced Glenn Beck's show on their evening lineup.

Bob Beckel, the lonely representative for "the left," did his best to try to remind the rest of them of just how many children in the United States are going hungry every day and it didn't make an ounce of difference to the rest of the panel, some of whom were more worried about their children being made aware of the fact that children are going hungry and that heaven forbid hearing about it might scare their otherwise isolated offspring.

And as Media Matters reported, it's not just Fox attacking Sesame Street for this, but right-wing bloggers as well -- Strings Attached: Right-Wing Media Take Shots At New Poverty-Stricken Sesame Street Character.
