743: Grooming Tactics

My son has started watching TV. So far we have Doozers, Mr Rogers and recently Wild Kratz. I think his favorite is Doozers, but I personally have a soft spot for gentle Mr. Rogers. I love the way he talks directly to the kids, that even in '79 he was making an effort to show multiethnic, gender balanced groups of people and that he discusses things kids really care about, like what it's like to go to school. He's very genuine and it doesn't surprise me one bit that it was his testimony before the Supreme Court that swayed them to let home video recordings of TV broadcasts remain legal. He really knows how to gain someone's trust and respect.
