As you know, I’ve got two kids under 8. We let them watch a few shows on the children’s cable TV network, Nickelodeon–Jimmy Neutron, Spongebob, Avatar. Earlier this spring, we even took them to the Nick Hotel in Florida. We enjoyed it, but I’ve had my reservations.
A few years ago, I wrote about the network’s politically correct treatment of the Alamo. They ignored a respected historian’s warning that the channel’s characterization of the battle at the Alamo as a dispute that was fought so “white farmers could keep their slaves” was unfair and simplistic. That was bad enough. Now, Nickelodeon has gone completely moonbatty. Blogger ArmyWifeToddlerMom points to an unbelievable piece of propaganda aired on Nickelodeon and aired by left-winger Linda Ellerbee (hat tip – Rachelle and Spouse Buzz):

This Nickeldeon “news program”, is not a news program. It is a leftist 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.
This “news program” is not about people changing the World around them.
Ms. Ellerby uses leftist propaganda buzz words like “taking on the establishment”.
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”.
The fourth segment of video shows another tweenager, who has put together a video of wounded Iraqi children, with the song Jesus Loves Me playing over it. This teenager blames America, the military, for what is happening in Iraq. This young girl says “she finds, videos and facts on the Internet” to show what is REALLY happening in Iraq. I am guessing she is getting these images from Al Jazeera.
Nickel[o]deon is the new training ground for leftist propaganda.

Matt Burden at Blackfive: “Time to get into high gear on this one…To say that I’m shocked by this kind of propaganda on a children’s tv station is an understatement.
