Sesame Street unveils new Bill O'Reilly character

Remember the brouhaha with Sesame Street over their alleged swipe at Fox News? Sesame Street has officially extended an olive branch.

Sherrie Westin, executive vice president of the Sesame Workshop, appeared on The O'Reilly Factor to explain the "Pox News" joke and unveil a new character that pays homage to "Papa Bear" as part of the show's long-standing Grouch journalism homages. Just so there's no confusion, the new Sesame Street character is the guy in the suit on the left, not the right, I think.

Why Sesame Street feels they have to pander to the likes of Bill O'Reilly is beyond me. Do they think that will stop him from bashing PBS and every series on the network. Of course not, that would be bad for ratings. O'Reilly is a bully and horse's behind. Why Sesame Street would want embrace that is beyond me.
