Sesame Street is pushing a liberal, gay agenda, says Fox News

You might have thought it was a children's programme. But you were wrong.


We all know Fox News is somewhat bizarre in its approach to news. But this segment on yesterday's episode of The Sean Hannity Show takes the biscuit. Subtitled "Big Bird bias", it is about the pro-gay, Democrat agenda of the beloved children's programme.

Ben Shapiro, author of Primetime Propaganda, bemoans the liberal bias in mainstream media. Worringly, his first sentence is: "Yeah, I kind of want to take them out back and cap 'em." Er -- what? Who?! Elmo and Big Bird?! Whatever happened to family values?

Watch: David Cameron calls on Jeremy Corbyn to stand down as Labour leader

The soon-to-be-ex Prime Minister shouts "for heaven's sake man, go!" in a heated exchange at Prime Minister's Questions.

Losing track of what the various players in the ongoing constitutional crisis believe? Sick of politicians flip-flopping? Starting, frankly, to get tired of the whole thing?

At today's PMQs, David Cameron looked equally rattled - but he managed to make one thing clear. After Jeremy Corbyn made a reference to Cameron's imminent departure from the top post, the Prime Minister replied by saying the Labour leader should also stand down.

"It might be in my party’s interest for him to sit there," Cameron said. "It's not in the national interest. I would say: for heaven’s sake, man, go!"

I'm a mole, innit.
