PBS ombudsman criticizes Sesame Street for 'POX News' joke

Poor Oscar the Grouch. Not even PBS' ombudsman will cut him a break. No wonder he's so grouchy. Well that and he lives in a garbage can. That would make me more than a little perturbed.

A clip of a two-year episode of Sesame Street popped up on YouTube thanks to conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart's on his Big Hollywood blog in which Grundgetta, Oscar's girlfriend, makes a crack about "POX News" that sounds very close to "FOX News." PBS' ombudsman Michael Getler said while the name could be construed as a "clever and appropriate title" to the "Grouch News Network," the joke about the reference "should have been resisted.

I was shocked when I saw it. Oscar the Grouch has a frigging girlfriend?!?

Perhaps the PBS ombudsman needs to get a life. They're muppets! Not witty political commentators.

Are we talking about Grungetta? She's been around for ages.
