Well, if by Elmo you mean Sesame Street, that is indoctrination for little children, pure and simple. And it has been since it began in the mid-to-late 60s. P.C. indoctrination. The people who are now in their 40s began being brainwashed via Sesame Street as toddlers.
And today's show is sponsored by the letters L, M, A and O.

WTVN never, never, never, never stood for the voice of news. That was a marketing gimmick.

WTVN-TV had those call letters first, beginning in 1949. WTVN-AM was WHKC until about 1953 and owned by the same people who owned WHK in Cleveland. Believe it or not, in 1953 Taft Broadcasting purchased the station because it wanted to take the Channel 6 tower off the LeVeque Building and needed a tower for their transmitter.

Very Very Good here!

Fair and Balance? This is a Marketing Gimmick also! Go to and search for "OUTFOXED" it is a 1 hour plus documentary on how FOX Cable News Spins/Cuts/Misleads the Viewer!
