On Tuesday, Fox & Friends host Brian Kilmeade spoke with the Sutton sisters, pint-size entrepreneurs who started up a lemonade business with some help from their parental “investors.” What could have simply been a very cute, if thin, summer story soon turned into the perfect example of why the politicization of the 24-hour news cycle is weakening and bastardizing the very concept of what, exactly, serves as news.
The interview started off innocently enough, with Kilmeade asking the two girls, ages 4 and 7, about their business, including their favorite employee. (“He’s a very cute and hard worker,” they said of their brother. Aw!) But, then…
Kilmeade: Clara, how do you feel about the President saying that you needed help to start this business? And just speak from — speak from within...
Clara, age 7: I would say that’s rude because we worked very hard to build this business. But we did have help.
Kilmeade: And your help came from?
Clara, age 7: Our help came from our investors, our dad and stepmom, along with other friends and family.
But tell us, Clara. Do you think green energy is doomed to fail?
