When: May 2008
Where: Fox and Friends
Everyone's favorite morning chat show conspiracy theorists over at Fox and Friends believe Mr. Rogers poisoned the minds of a generation of children by telling them that "you're special, just for being the way you are." According to the FOX pundits, Fred Rogers forgot to remind kids to work hard, and is partially responsible for raising an entitled generation who think they deserve something "just for being who they are." A Lousiana State University professor, according to the hosts, helped raise a generation of children who expect to have their grades changed on college papers and to get a trophy at every tee-ball game. Mr. Rogers was unavailable for comment, however, as he died several years prior.
