After Fox News anchor Eric Bolling went after the Muppets for supposedly trying to brainwash kids with anti-capitalist messages, he tried to defend himself against the onslaught of media criticism. The truth, though, is that his segment was a perfect example of Fox News "debate" tactics.

The hosts jumped from on subject to another, apparently weaving together a conspiracy when they were just lacking a focused argument. Their assertion that the villain in The Muppets was an attack on capitalism also fell flat because it relied on a one-dimensional analysis and a truly awful grasp of a little literary technique called "characterization."
