What the Hell is Wrong with Nickelodeon?

Time to get into high gear on this one.  ArmyWifeToddlerMom has the scoop:

Nickelodeon is trying to brainwash your children in the morning, or a leftist primer

<...>
Please watch this, in its entirety. It is imperative that you SEE what Nickelodeon is showing at 5:00am.

NICKELODEON IS BRAINWASHING YOUR CHILD

<...>

Pay particular attention to the second and fourth stories. 

This Nickelodeon "news" program, is not a news program, it is a but this show was a primer on how to be a "left-wing radical REBEL".

I am not a blind follower of our Government, and I also think that Government should be watched by it's citizens. It is our civic duty.

However this program led by Ellerby, is anti-war, anti- GWOT, anti-military. 

<...>

She shows a group, of "tweenagers" walking around in orange jumpsuits, hooded and yelling from a bullhorn. "We are not ok, with people being tortured by American soldiers!" "Are cooperation's priority over human lives?"

There is also a call for the impeachment of the President in the second segment of the video, "democracy is at stake because of the President violating the Constitution"...

I went and watched the clip and it's even worse that AWTM says it is.  To say that I'm shocked by this kind of propaganda on a children's tv station is an understatement.

Read A-dub's entire post.  At the end, she provides email addresses of Nick, Viacom, and an advertiser, Hasbro:

...You can drop a line to the folks at Nickelodeon here

I would love for you to write a note to Viacom HERE

And PLEASE contact Hasbro here, make sure they know what Nickelodeon really thinks of corporations and Nerf guns.

Let them know what you think about Nickelodeon's foray into leftist politics.
