Fox News: Mr. Rogers Is An Evil Man

Fox News: Mr. Rogers Is An Evil Man

Even Mr. Rogers isn’t safe from the ridicule of Fox News.  Citing a recent study led by a San Diego State University psychologist and a statement from Don Chance, one of the researchers on the study, who concluded that Mr. Rogers is  “representative of a culture of excessive doting” and did a “disservice” to a generation of children.

Of course, Fox News hosts took Prof. Chance’s statements and went even further. Watch it:

"They did a study at a university..." typical Faux Nooze documentation of sources. What a bunch of idiotic bozos!

Mr Rogers presented a safe place where young children could get away from a not so safe world, and learn about love, kindness, responsibility, and caring. Mr Roger's programs for adults were very well done, presented by a scholar who spoke with authority and yet easily understandable. He was a kind, compassionate man who knew what he was talking about. Evil? NO. He was just the opposite--a minister of a loving and compassionate God (really, he was a Methodist minister).

Once again Fox proves just how dumb they are. Mr. Rogers was wonderful for children. I would tell my children just how special they are too... Fox has blown this out of proportion. The world would be a better place if we had more Mr. Rogers in the world. I

I never watched Mr. Rogers growing up but this sounds ridiculous to me. It sounds like Mr. Rogers is used as a scapegoat for people's own failings. i think everyone is special irrelevant of their social status (whether they do well in school, have a successful career, etc. or not). If ur sense of "specialness" is dependent on life situations that are in constant fluctuation then u're in for a lot of (mental/emotional) suffering. But if u can recognize that u're good for who u r as a person, then u have that for life. That positive mentality will get you further than blaming so and so for ur own failings. U (whoever claims to been negatively influenced by Mr. Rogers)need to own up to ur own successes and failures in life.

Fox news is stupid. Mr Rogers was a good role model.

Well, he must be evil - always putting on a red coat and harboring a secret monarchy. Makes perfect sense by the reasoning of a stubborn kindergartener, which is about the level of thought that Fox News tends to use... hey, do you suppose they've feel a little too entitled thanks to excess doting from the far right?

If ignorance is bliss then fox news(small caps intentional) , must have reached Nirvana .

Fox news is having to reach further and further to whip up fear and loathing by pointing to the "wrong-doings" of others, no matter how far-fetched. Perhaps a better source for their ridicule would be what they see in the bathroom mirror, every time they relieve themselves at work.
