Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy hit back at Fox News during a UK press conference following the London Premiere of their new film. Fox had publically criticized the film for supposedly pushing a 'dangerous liberal agenda' at kids.

Kermit mocks their blatant and pointless fear mongering before Miss Piggy offers her own opinion on Fox News.

"What's actually going on here?" Bolling asked commentator Dan Gainor of the Media Research Center. "Is liberal Hollywood using class warfare to brainwash our kids?"

"Yes, absolutely, and they've been doing it for decades," replied Gainor. "Hollywood, the Left, the media, they hate the oil industry. They hate corporate America."

Gainor later added, "It's amazing how far the left will go just to stoop, to manipulate your kids, to convince them, to give [them] an anti-corporate message."

Bolling asked "Are there any Occupy Wallstreet Muppets?"
