Fox News Calls Mr. Rogers An Evil Man

Mr. Rogers The Downfall Of America

Little did I know, Mr. Rogers was an evil man. By telling children they’re special just for being who they are, he helped create this generation of worthless, lazy socialists who think they’re entitled to health care… at least according to Fox News.

They actually use the word “evil” to describe Mr. Rogers and criticize him for his “optimistic message where everyone was special even if they didn’t deserve it”, which is “ruining kids with a sense of entitlement.” Then one of them starts babbling about how children should go back to churning butter and making their own sweaters. Fox’s Brian Kilmeade said “that man unintentionally did a whole generation or two a disservice.” Only on Fox could a man who spent his life dedicated to public service and education be blamed for ruining generations of Americans.

And if you are interested in the ‘study’ done by the LSU professor referenced when Fox News calls Mr. Rogers an evil man, it’s available at the Wall Street Journal: Blame It on Mr. Rogers: Why Young Adults Feel So Entitled.

    Who’s not special is fox news with their disinformation. You idiots, everyone is special, if just because they are a rarity. They are the only example that exists of that person. Being special is not getting well paid idiot. If you want to talk special, why not talk about special needs. You must have quite a bit of viewers with those kind of needs

      You all critical of Fox can’t see through your on bias….Fox was tonque in cheek reporting a study out of Louisiana; they were playing up the absurdity of the study by using the “evil” label. If you didn’t have blue jack*ss glasses on, you’d see clearly.

      Beside, Mr. Rogers influence more than one generation for good. Why don’t you go comment at the crackpot professor’s blog.

        Isn’t that the same logic used to let Rush use the word “retarded”? “Oh, it’s SATIRE.”

      • Brian says:

        You’re joking, right? Your argument is such a tremendous stretch, even the fiction writers at Fox wouldn’t use it to deflect criticism. This is just another example of their fascistic tendencies… trampling on anyone and anything who gets in the way.

      • HAHA says:

        You are showing your own biased towards Fox news. You shouldn’t be so insulting to people with an honest opinion, unless you are an employee of news corp. You are a jacka$s yourself. Faux news spent an awful lot of time on this and it wasn’t very obvious that they were playing up the absurdity of the study. They were shining a huge spotlight on this and don’t be surprised if it’s some insane idea at the hands of Karl Rove to try and pin younger Americans vs. the much older Tea Partiers (which unfortunately includes my Mom). Stop defending the class bully because he’ll still beat you up when you are no longer needed, no matter how much you stand up for him.
        Plus, if you are going to criticize people, you MUST do a better job ensuring you don’t use poor grammar and miss-spelled words. Unfortunately, it is hard for most people to look past that and actually consider what you are saying. It’s just human nature, especially of the educated. I’ve done it plenty of times in the past so I’m not claiming any superiority based on that. Just consider how you come across to total strangers.

        If Fox News wants to do satire or comedy, perhaps they can set up a new show alone the lines of the Daily Show. However, as a legitimate news station, they should keep things business.

      OMG, you people are idiots. Are you so biased that you can’t see they were laughing and joking about a study someone else did? This is not Fox News claiming Mr. Rogers is Evil, it was a Study done by some crackpot professor somewhere and they are having fun with it. OMG, get a frickin’ grip.
      The only thing Fox News did here was use this to make a point about this generation feeling entitled – and they are right. I busted my butt to get where I’m at today, overcoming illness and disadvantage. Yet I see young people with the entitled attitude all the time, makes me sick.
      Mr. Rogers had nothing to do with it however, Fox was just using the study to emphasize a very real problem with young people today.

        Liberal Jane,
        Were you to go back as far as written history extends, you’d be in good company demeaning and talking down the rising young generation. From potsherds to Socratic commentary, it’s always the youth going to hell in a handbasket.
        The Depresssion and WWII generation said that about us war babies and the Boomers.
        The Boomers have whined about the GenX and the Mosaics and all in between.
        Listen up: I see young people every day, young people who are junior high, high school, college and post-graduate.
        They are almost all bright, motivated, industrious and generally upbeat human beings.
        They are not too different from the teenagers from Green Day and the Sex Pistols and Seven Seconds that my children brought home from the Gilman Street Project in the 1980s and 90s: polite, friendly, good communicators, nice manners. So they had interesting clothes and hair and so their music and their language wasn’t quite what my teenage years had. So what?
        One thing I’ve learned over the decades is that people, whether kids or teens or adults, are about as nice as you allow them to be; and if they aren’t, you just might want to look in a mirror for a reason.

I grew up watching his shows on a daily basis and I believe I turned out fine. Why rag on him now after he was passed away? Let him just rest in peace. Parents have the option to let their children watch his show. It is a beneficial show. He explores new things in each show so chilfren can see how things are done. And besides its a SONG! Let’s talk about the big purple dinosaur! If any show should be getting bad things said about them its Barney. So let MR. RODGERS BE

    I am shocked and disgusted with this story. These people would much rather make children feel like they’re unimportant and meaningless unless they bust their butts all day everyday than let children know that they are loved REGARDLESS of what they do or don’t do. That was Mr. Rogers’ message. Not that things ought to be handed to you for no reason, or that laying around at home doing nothing will get you what you want. The only ones responsible for THAT type of behavior are the child themselves and the parents. I watched Mr. Rogers as a child, and I have worked since I turned 16 years old. Not because I had to, but because I knew that I should in order to contribute to society. My family raised me to understand that wasting life away being lazy was unacceptable. Do you want the rest of our society to feel the same way? Then stop blaming the innocent for the mistakes of the parents.

  16. Madameshabbs says:

    You have got to have a serious misplaced sense of child-rearing if you ever think telling a child they are special is a bad thing. You also have to reconsider your lack of understanding in child development to think that something on TV could hold all the blame, good or bad, for an entire generation of people’s upbringing. Take a look at who puts on that TV, who sits their children in front of it in lieu of a babysitter, or, heaven forbid, spending more time with said children, interacting. If the parents of the children of the “mr. rogers” generation had been the ones to tell their children they were special , would this segment be targeted at how horrible the parents were? No, you attack a television program, who can’t defend it’s self and has no real life interaction with that generation. I suppose Seasame Street is evil as well for telling kids they should love one another, regardless of color or creed. No, instead we pressure said show to change a staple character to stop eating so many cookies, and promote veggies, though many other characters in the show have already done such. In the same vein as calling Mr Rogers evil because parents put their children in front of it, Cookie Monster having to change his stripes because kids are fat, is nothing more than society’s sick comfortability with pointing the finger at something else instead of themselves. The children who have become obese at such young ages don’t buy the groceries, and they rarely choose the program they get placed in front of. The fact that those children weren’t told by their parents that “yes, he’s a monster so he can eat nothing but cookies, you’re a little human, so you need veggies and fruits too” is sad. What else is sad, is a man who dedicated his life to promoting kindness and love could be called evil.

  17. Mellissa says:

    This is being taken way out of context! They are reporting what LSU did studies on. They are actually making fun of it and discussing what LSU reported on it. Its called sarcasm and its not a big deal. All news stations use it with different stories.

    • Madameshabbs says:

      I see what you mean, personally i was slamming the very idea of ANYONE calling him evil or more to the point anyway thinking TV is the end all be all as a source of child development.

        (A) News channels should really never use sarcasm, as it detracts from the whole _news_ (aka factual) part of the news.
        (B) Nothing about this video was sarcastic. Newscasters blatantly stating that they agree with the study is not sarcasm. You might want to read sarcasm into the video if you disagree with it but agree with the concept of Fox News (cognitive dissonance), but in a direct reading, it really is an earnest news piece.

  18. J. M. says:

    This is absolutely horrible. This is just another excuse for people to blame. Now we can blame Mr. Rogers in addition to the parents. How about people use some common sense and limit a child’s time watching TV altogether? Kids stopped playing outdoors to connect with nature, fell victim to a shorter attention span, and doing productive things because of TV in general. And why is society so quick to jump on Mr. Rogers , but it’s perfectly acceptable for a child to watch violent shows, or countries at war? It’s entertainment and limitations need to be placed on it just like anything else in life. Hey Fox, why don’t you report on something more important than this load of crap?

    Um, Mr. Rogers started airing on PBS in 71. That would mean these bobbleheads would have had the opportunity to watch it as children (as I doubt they were raised in strict religious homes with no TV they probably did watch it along with the evil Sesame Street.) They think they “turned out ok” after watching Mr. Rogers but no one else did? Even if this is meant to be funny (lame attempt at best), the obsessive need to associate Fox talking points to this study is irritating and pretty inappropriate. No surprise.

  25. FOXFAN says:

    Um, it’s not FOX News that’s calling him evil. They are simply reporting the research of a professor at Louisiana State University. Clearly, this is tongue in cheek, at least from the reporters’ points of view. How about you place the blame where it actually belongs…not on Fox News.

    • Srysly? says:

      Perhaps – I have not read the study to know if the word “evil” was used or if the slant they are taking on it is accurate. In any case, why repeat “Evil?” I was very aware it was meant to be tongue and cheek, the problem is there is a chunk of the fox audience on whom that will be lost – it seems to be confusing people in general. This was meant to be entertainment (not news), but Rush refers to himself as an entertainer and people take his words as gospel. I appreciate your fandom, but don’t negate the fox responsibility for HOW they present information. Picking on a dead guy is hardly fair. Yes, before you go there, that is true of many “liberal” shows too.

    • anonymous says:

      then the station should take a better look into what they are reporting and leave the bias out. real news isnt supposed to be biased like this is. they are taking their opinion and shoving it down your throat, not reporting news and leaving the viewer to decide what they think of it like real news stations should.

    Even though I received trophies for participation as a kid, I still knew that the trophy for MVP and 1st place means something more.

    Actually I’m pretty sure I get what they are saying. They are using Mr. Rogers as an example of what our generation believes in, which is that a lot of people think they are special for no reason at all and don’t put into account that they have to work hard to be special. I’m not saying that Mr. Rogers was a bad show, I personally watched it as a kid. Basically they are just trying to say that you shouldn’t be just handed things in this country, that’s not how we grew to the super power we are, we worked very hard and didn’t give out anything to anybody. Fox is just saying that we need to learn this at an early age because lets face it, the new generation is used to just getting hand outs and just doesn’t have the work ethic like we used to.

    People shouldn’t be entitled to everything just because they are themselves, they should be entitled to everything because they work for it. That’s something that this country has lost sight in. Since you’re a government employee, I think its safe to recognize what this country is coming to. I think Fox News does a lot of good research and carries far more facts than other networks.

    Anyways I know you guys won’t see the logic in this, you are liberal after all.

  50. the furriest of marmots says:

    Okay, FIRST, Fox was having some fun with this story. Fox is not being all evil here, no matter how evil it may be in other stories… BUT, while many people think Mr. Rogers is appropriate only for 4/5/6 year olds, I just want to tell you that when I was in college in the ’80s I watched Mr. Rogers every day before going to classes. And later, after college, I watched him more before going to each and every job interview. Want to know why? Because I’m a RETARD! Just like the guy who wrote the piece for the WSJ!

  51. hideto says:

    Being special in itself doesn’t contribute to society, working hard does. America didn’t become great because of individuals being special, its because they worked hard and contributed. There we go! That’s much better wording.

    Ideally, you would want someone who is special AND works hard, but personally if I had to rely on someone and could only choose one, you’re damn straight I’m going to choose “work hard”

    Even though I hate Fox News, I can see where they’re coming from on this one. I loved Mr. Rogers and watched him all the time, but I was also fortunate enough to realize that I am not a unique and beautiful little snowflake. Mr. Rogers by himself is not responsible for the amount of entitlement people feel in this country, but his attitude and message definitely contributed to it.

  59. Allison Mackey says:

    Fred Rogers created a safe place on his TV show for a half hour a day and invited children to be themselves there in his world where he demonstrated quite effectively to very young minds all kinds of self care skills (yup), and brought them to meet real people who work on all kinds of real things. His cast engaged with imaginative stories and drama where very young kids could carefully observe ways to behave and interact with others in various situations. Story characters in interpersonal conflicts were often challenged to be personally accountability for their own behaviors – to do the best or ‘right’ things and little viewers were able to work out questions and conclusions along with them. The great thing about Mr. Rogers was that he opened for children a way to reflect on life at their level. I don’t know what show these folks are talking about. Nothing was spoon fed. The only thing Rogers gave unconditionally was human compassion… interesting that’s exactly what’s being attacked here. Maybe it would have been good for longer prior generations to have grown up watching Mr. Rogers.

  60. Gamma says:

    This was from a show in July 2007. There is no way Mr. Rogers should be blamed for how young people act today. I think it was probably said in jest on the show–but get real. This was a report on a study done by a professor at LSU! Why isn’t anyone blaming him? I disagree with his findings because I feel if people have a sense of entitlement, it comes down to how they are raised by their families.

      Yep, because we do no work. We dirty liberals should hate ourselves and continue hunting the job market for jobs that don’t exist- don’t stereotype an entire mass of people you call “liberals” and belittle the work we do.

        wow you guy are some sick people!!!! I think we should lynch you for bashing liberals and then make death threats to your families and hope they commit suicide from all the shame and guilt they feel for having ever associated with you ooh and then we can hope you burn in hell!!!!!!!!
        or are you guy using the sarcasm you refuse to see in this video?
        I have no problem with disliking fox news but this is satire not their actual opinion
        if you want to hate fox I recommend you start with something real like the racism
        or maybe the demonization of all opposition

    When are people going to stop blaming TV for raising their children wrong? If you don’t like it, don’t let them watch TV, and raise them your own damn self. Cutting out Fox News would be a good start.

    I happen to agree that most of my generation, I’m 27, and even more of the next are worthless, lazy, and feel entitled to things that other people work their asses off to get. But I’m pretty sure it’s not because of Mr. Rogers, it’s their parents fault. Thank you. Nina

    I swear this is true. The very first time I saw these three buffoons, I honestly thought it was a satire, like Will Ferrell used to do on Saturday Night Live. I couldn’t believe how stupid and vapid they were and they have only gotten worse over time. As usual, they have taken a subject that could be very interesting and reduced it to useless babbling.

    However, I tend to agree with the study from Louisiana. We have raised a generation of kids who feel so entitled to everything simply because when they were growing up, they were told constantly how wonderful they were and how every little thing they did was just marvelous. They were never punished for being bad or worse yet, were threatened with punishment without ever following through. So they knew they could get away with it. I actually heard a ten-year-old say “I run this house.” On the one hand, I wanted to smack him but on the other hand, I couldn’t argue with him because what he said was true.

    While I’m not saying kids should be brow-beaten, and I sure as hell don’t think Mr. Rogers was evil, I am saying that they also need to face reality. When my mother spoke, it was the law, because I knew there was no way of getting around whatever she wanted me to do. I hear kids talking to their parents in a way that if I said the same thing, I probably would have regretted it. And that’s putting it mildly. Not only me but my friends as well. I am 54 years old and was raised that nobody handed anything to you on a silver platter and you didn’t automatically gain respect just by being who you are. You had to work for those things, then you deserved it.

    Awaiting the follow-up post on all the stupid things MSNBC says. You have a lot to work with.

    How about we look at the parents who have allowed their children to watch 8 or 9 hours of TV a day instead of having to work for anything? It’s not his message, it’s the message that parents failed to deliver.

    FOX News is so full of shit they are now resorting to pick on a kindly old man that helps promote self esteem. Do they not think about the fact that some kids have a disability and he is saying they are special whatever they might have? What is wrong with telling a child that might be cripple, disabled, fat, skinny, tall, short, etc. that they are just as special as a normal child? FOX News needs to lay off this crap! Are they going to pick on Sesame Street next? This is not news people, this is just BULLSHIT!

    I really think the Fox News folks are being sarcastic about the ‘study’.
