Bias claim by Fox News gets the Miss Piggy treatment
Wednesday 01 February 2012
Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy have rejected claims that their new film, The Muppets, pushes a communist political agenda.
Eric Bolling, a TV presenter on Fox Business Network, had claimed that the film aimed to brainwash children through an anti-corporate plot featuring an evil oil baron character named Tex Richman.
"It's so dangerous," Kermit said, mocking the allegations at a press conference to publicise the film's release next month. "That's categorically not true. And besides, if we had a problem with oil companies, why would we have spent the entire film driving around in a gas-guzzling Rolls-Royce?"
Miss Piggy went a step further than her green co-star, saying: "It's almost as laughable as accusing Fox News of, you know, being news."
"Boy, that's going to be all over the internet," Kermit replied.
But Miss Piggy got the last laugh, adding: "If they take what I say seriously, they've got a real big problem."
