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.

    They are talking about ENTITLEMENT! It’s so easy to say, “That horrible Fox! They called Mr. Rogers EVIL!” Go back to your rabid Rachel Maddow, you ignorant liberals.

    It is part satire, part comment on our current freeloader society.

  2. Mercedes says:

    Maybe if kids now a days had Mr. Rogers the kids of today would feel better about themselves. Mr. Rogers told me I was special, I DO NOT think the world owes me, I WORK hard for everything I have. Also children with special needs like asprergers or autism or Neurofibromatosis or disorder that makes a child look, act of learn in anyway than what society considers “the norm” and are sunned by other kids and ADULTS could use MR. Rogers and his philosophy.

    Um, I hate Faux News as much as the next man, but they are REPORTING on an actual news story (for once), and only one of the newscasters is being a douche (for once).

    Your deliberate mischaracterization of it happened is just as evil as anything Fox News ever does. Way to be a hypocrite.

    fox is full of white ignorant people who are full of shit and have nothing better to do but talk shit.

  6. yikes says:

    really? This is the most stupid thing I have every heard. All children should feel special for being themselves. Being special and working hard are 2 different things. Winning and losing comes from hard work and kids should be taught that. Kids should know they are special and know how to work hard.

    Why are you all waisting your time on this?, Do you really believe what you are saying? Do you really believe that the generation that you speak of made Mr. Rodgers that much of a part of there lives? Especially to blame him for there self-absorbed selves? I used to watch his show everyday growing up. I was a kid. Watching a kid show. Dont blame a dead man for something you should be blaming bigger and better problems we have in our society. Think of all the things even you guys are doing everyday that is affecting not only children but adults too. How do you think you are making his family feel? Think about others, not just yourselves. Have a good day.

    Fox destroys other networks in viewer ratings and it drives liberals crazy so all these clever little bashes on Fox (“this will show em”) bullshit articles posted by you people mean nothing to those that have value in society.

  11. Mike in NJ says:

    Fox is NOT being tongue-in-cheek here, humorous, sarcastic, or anything but *accepting* of this ‘study’. (Like several people have said, the anchors say they back this ‘study’several times. Perhaps understanding the concept of ‘sarcasm’ would help.) These people are such a bunch of ignorant morons. They pay attention to ‘studies’ when it suits their purpose, ignore them and degrade scientists as ‘liberal elitists’ when it doesn’t. They’re not just ‘reporting’ on this, that’s like telling your kids all the gruesome details of a grisly murder, then dismissing responsibility because you’re just ‘telling them what happened’. This is implicit and explicit acceptance of this professor’s ‘study’.

    You know, in AMERICA, the INDIVIDUAL is valued. In Communist China, Totalitarian North Korea, Theocratic Iran and Saudi Arabia, and any number of terrorist groups, the COLLECTIVE is valued more than any INDIVIDUAL, and the INDIVIDUAL is WORTHLESS. It’s why (in the 60’s-80’s)our jet fighters cost 40 million and theirs [the USSR’s in this case] cost 5 million – we valued each individual pilot; they thought they’d just throw 100 pilots at us for every one, and they’d win. So would Fox rather devalue the individual, like those groups above, or value the individual?

    Fear (whether of pain or of failure) only motivates to the avoidance of the unpleasant sensation; real motivation comes from believing the goal can be accomplished, and that you can achieve that goal.

    Mr. Rogers did not really inform the majority of youth of today. He informed the previous generation. (Today’s youth valued Nickelodeon’s offerings more than those from PBS. I could be mistaken, but that is my understanding.)

    For the generation that WAS affected, he did a very good job of ‘standing in’ for some adults who might not have taken the time to spend with them. Many adults today report that he made a difference for them. I count myself among them; though I had two great parents that were present, Mr. Rogers was another adult I respected, emulated as I grew older, and learned from. Is having another teacher available OK with you, Fox?

    If you watch the reruns of Mr. Rogers, you’ll notice certain consistent themes: Be good to your friends, treat others with respect, don’t lie, learning has value, work has value, people should be treated well, because they are special JUST LIKE YOU ARE, you can count on people, and thus should be able to be counted on.

    Do they seriously think we should have FEWER people out there like Mr. Rogers? Doubters – google : “tom junod mr rogers”, first link. If you don’t shed a tear, you do not belong in the Human Race.

    (If this is all Entertainment, perhaps we should force them to change their name from Fox News to Fox Entertainment!)

    Please, Fox, look at the amazing accomplishments that the excellent (those that excel) youth of today are contributing – and stop looking down on them because they don’t have the years of experience in cynical manipulation at which you are so expert.

    (Actually, someone said Mr. Rogers was a Navy Seal; this and other rumors that he had a violent and/or criminal past is false as reported on snopes.) He WAS a minister. Got a problem with THAT, Fox????

    HUH!?!?!?!? ….. blame is on Mr. Rogers…. what?!?!? OK i grew up watching Mr. Rogers every day (and sesame street) and guess what. i worked for everything and i achieved what i wanted. i never believed that i didn’t have to work for anything because i was special… so those who do believe that. its not Mr. Rogers fault. he spent his entire life serving the USA. first in the military, and then by helping children learn! I dont know what is going on with the future generations (and no its not everybody). But i honestly believe that Mr. Rogers helped to teach morals and the lessons you need in life! like sharing and caring. telling the the truth! those are things you learned from that show. i personally think maybe they needed to do a different study… not that Mr. Rogers is evil, but that those that are lacking the … self sense to get up and work for what want, and not expect to have everything handed to them on a silver platter… that its a product of free will. its a product of not having the right direction in life. no matter how much you try to nourish and love a child they still have a chance to turn away from everything they are ever taught. so i don’t blame Mr. Rogers. I am not saying that the parents are 100% at fault (in some cases that is the truth) I am saying that there are to many factors to consider to name one person or thing, the source.

Don’t even joke about mr. rogers screwing up kids. It’s more like you dumb ass parents screwed your own kids. Don’t blame rogers, blame you’re dumb selves for not trying hard enough in order to make your kids smarter and better. Asian kids try harder, not because they never watched rogers, but because their parents consistently tell them to try harder. YOU RACIST BASTARDS like you know anything about asia.

  20. Robert Todd Loewen says:

    To fox news i say the following

    First off, I have to get this off my chest as I have just read your story and am FURIOUS!!! The whole point of the Mr. Rogers series was to entertain young children and teach them important values as human beings. Secondly, HOW DARE YOU, HOW DARE YOU insinuate that in order to be special you have to work hard. When I was growing up there were many times that I was depressed and lonely at home because I didn’t have any friends to talk to, play with. I watched Mr. Rogers incessantly and you know what?? I felt better about myself as an individual. Did I feel entitled?? NO. I felt better about myself and while I may be unemployed now with not a lot of hope for getting a job due to the economy and other factors, I think back and remember the important things that Mr. Rogers said and conveyed in the series and I feel happy with the way things are.

    Now let me finish by saying that while you are able to report what you please (I respect your First Amendment Rights), Think before you write about such a child hood icon. Who knows one day your kids (if you have them) will read that article and think “what were you thinking?”

  21. Gary Shevlin says:

    Dear whomever,

    If you beleive that Mr. Rogers was evil then you need to get out of this Country. This man went against his own principles to serve his Country. He has NOT hurt the children of this Country, he took the time to speak to children on their level. Corporate America is to blame here. They have driven up cost to the point that a single income family can barely survive. Stay at home Moms are a thing of the past. Therefore our children do not get the nurturing and values instilled them as they once did back when families were for the most part single incomes. Fox News has just earned themselves the Right to be boycotted (by me). I would stand side by side with Mr. Rogers at anytime I was asked to because I enjoy the freedoms He and his fellow Marines have secured for this Country! I repeat myself, if you think Mr. Rogers’ is evil you need TO GET OUT of THIS COUNTRY!

    Proud American

  40. Eric Scales says:

    I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that the writer feels a host of a kids show could possibly be more responsible the flaws of a whole generation of children, than the childrens parents are. How much of a persons life is Fred Rogers responsible for? If a child watched Mr Rogers for an hour every weekday (in most markets it was shown twice every weekday) this somehow means his message is the guiding influence of the rest of their lives? What kind of things did their parents teach them? Certainly not that there are consequences for inaction, that nobody is going to accomplish things for you, that hard work pays off. Whatever the generation in question’s parents were teaching them, they wouldn’t be a lot worse without knowing “You’re special”. In a time when the numbers of divorces skyrocketted, stories of school shootings, kids being bullied into suicide, and parents doing unspeakable things to the children in their care, how can anyone questions the value of one adult, even someone only connected through television, telling a child that they have value. Fred Rogers never once said, “You’re special and you should sit back and be handed life on a silver platter”, far from it in fact, but I wonder if the reporter was even remotely familiar with any of Fred Rogers work. Aside from telling kids, you’re special, let me summarize some of the other messages that his show drove home:

    1)Deep and simple are far more important than shallow and complicated (Haha! Try and find something Deep and simple on Fox!)

    2)Any feeling you have is allright, but it’s what you do with your feelings that’s important.

    and most relevant to this article:

    3) You can hope and wish all you want, but if you want something to get done, you’ve got to do it.

    To call Fred Rogers Evil is just about the most assinine thing I’ve ever heard. Even if you agreed with the conclusions of this study, I think the furthest you could go would be “misguided”. Evil denotes an intent to cause harm, and nobody who watched 30 minutes of Mr. Rogers could ever think he’d harm anyone.

    the R vs D debate is a politician’s game. they keep the red angry at the blue, vise-versa & they can get away with sneaking in their D man or their R man – and all the while you believe you won or had a chance to win. nope. the political machine wins, no matter what. it’s like vegas, the house always wins. both parties are so incredibly corrupt at this point, i have trouble understanding why anyone (w/o a political career) would support either side without shame… yet so many here are blinded by hate – they keep forgetting & regressing into blessing one side & damning the other.

  50. You have got to be kidding me. hi is probably the most moronic idea I have heard in my sixty four years. Mr. Rogers showed children (often from broken homes) kindness, and helped them to understand they are worthwhile human beings. The people on Fox News questioning his influence should be so fortunate as to be of such a positive influence in the world as was Fred Rogers. They should be ashamed of themselves.

    Whether it is tongue in cheek or a real opinion, even the people on 4chan said that the one thing in the world that was off limits was Mr.Rogers. The freaking people that are on 4CHAN said that you can make fun, ridicule, and say whatever you want about anything in the world, with an entire consensus of NOT Mr. Rogers.

Additionally, I will have you know that I am anself employed entrepeneur (not a socialist) and therefore do not feel entitled. Furthermore, id dare say that a child watching Mr. Rogers will be far better adjusted compared to the scores of todays youth killing animated characters via violent video games.

Secondly, I don’t know who can listen to those whiney voices talking over each other through an entire show. It’s a rare form of torture.

  57. The problem with some of the comments here is that they are treating Fox News as if it is a bona fide news agency, and not Rupert Murdock’s personal propaganda machine ,waging a 24hr war to drive the Republican talking points. Fox is great at reporting stories like this with a wink and a dog whistle. The dog whistle lets their faithful know they are serious about what they are saying, while giving a wink so that they can deny it, and their apologists can claim it’s nothing but satire.

    With this story FOX just made a ton of enemies. No one is going to listen to this bull. I honestly think that FOX is insane in the membrane. Mr. Rodgers has no effect on how a child believes if they are entitled to everything. It is called human nature. We are born selfish and taught by our families that being selfish is not ok or is ok. I grew up watching his shows on a daily basis and I believe I turned out fine. If it was not for Mr. Rogers some abused and neglected children would never know that they are worth being loved.

  70. Trippel says:

    Well, for starters, no I don’t believe Rogers was evil his job was very important to him and he had the best intentions. It was a little kids show designed to make little kids happy, and it did exactly that. The argument Fox presents is not without complete merit, though I think they’re looking too hard in the wrong place for the solution to the problem. Kids today do have an entitlement mindset, where they want government handouts that come from taxpayers yet call the taxpayer greedy if they want the money too. I’m 22, and I go to school, work, and have prospects for a future. Anyone can do it in this great country, no matter what the welfare lovers will tell you. My parents both came from unwealthy families and became lawyers without the use of excessive handouts. Don’t people have any pride in themselves? It all boils down to what you believe the government’s job is. The founding fathers never intended the kind of ravish spending we see today, nor did they believe the people were incapable of providing for themselves. I personally wouldn’t want the government to take care of me my whole life especially if I knew it was coming from other people who don’t want me taking their money. Generosity should be a choice not regulated by the man. I agree with Fox about what the problem is, but I disagree on their scapegoat.

  71. Question Assumptions says:

    Why is no one actually criticizing the fact that this isn’t even news show material in the first place?

I don’t even have a job. But I know a good kid when I see one. Because they’re ALL good kids, until dried-out, brain-dead skags like you drag them down and convince them they’re no good.

    She can also make sounds like a real baby. Kushies Zolo Boa Stacking Rings is a stack and squeeze soft toy that makes different sounds when a child squeezes them. Toy guns should be brightly colored so they cannot be mistaken for real weapons, and kids should be taught to never point darts, arrows, or guns at anyone.

    Fox is the reason why America is such a shit hole in the eyes of the rest of the world. I get more realistic news from search democracy in North Korea than anything Fox put up in their show.

    I am physically ill after watching this. The fact that these people can say these things and take themselves seriously, and that others watch this and take them seriously makes me ashamed to be a member of the same species. That man was a saint, and the love he poured out to children every day for years is a testament to that.
