Mr. Rogers Never Wore Nike.

As a PR guy I should be upset by that headline, but I’m not. I like to keep things pure and simple just as much as the public television station WHYY in Philadelphia.


Kempt had a good item on national Mr. Rogers sweater day.

    I don’t like it. I don’t see how an endorsement from a company would make Mr. Roger’s content any less “pure”. I’m sure that there were plenty of visible/recognizable products in his house. Perhaps, he wasn’t getting paid for them, but even if he was…so what?

    I couldn’t disagree with you more.

    It’s too bad that we’ve become so brainwashed in this country to think that ‘commercialization’ is just a natural part of entertainment. That’s exactly why entertainment makes people idiots, like the two previous comments. Go chase a bimbo on a beer truck, dolt.

    I agree with you, Ed. I agree with what WHYY says in their poster, and I’m sorry that our world has become such a heartless (and soulless, and morally bankrupt) place that ‘selling out’ and compromising on QUALITY is considered ‘successful’.

    I’m just glad I’m old and going to leave this world soon, so I don’t have to listen to people like that any more.
