With the recent release of a new movie, the Muppets have come under fire from some critics, who say they have a hidden agenda.
Fox Business host Eric Bolling suggested on Friday that the Muppets are trying to brainwash kids into hating corporate America, reports the Los Angeles Times’ Show Tracker blog.
Bolling responded to comments from Dan Gainor of the Media Research Center, who noted, "All of these movies attacking the oil industry. None of them reminding people what oil means for most people, which is fuel to light a hospital or heat your home," the story says. Much of the criticism was directed at the character of Tex Richman, a greedy oilman, played by Chris Cooper.
"Why do kids have to be exposed to this? … Why is rich evil? … We’re teaching our kids class warfare. Where are we, communist China?," Bolling responded, the story notes.
