SpongeBob Gets Phil on Fox News!

Hey y’all – sorry it’s been so long since I’ve posted. We’ve had a wild summer! (I’ll fill you in later.) But here’s the craziest news… This Saturday morning I’ll be appearing on Fox News, courtesy of none other than SpongeBob Squarepants.

Ya see, earlier this week a study was published that showed fast-paced shows like SpongeBob can have an immediate negative impact on kids’ abilities to focus and delay gratification. The national news media has picked up the story, and I have been offered up as an “expert witness” from the world of children’s media. I’ve done 3 radio interviews in the last 24 hours on the topic, and now I’ll be appearing on Fox News this Saturday morning at 9:20am ET for a roundtable discussion of kids, TV, and the little yellow spongy guy. Yes, that’s awfully early in the morning, but you’ll probably be able to find the segment online afterward.

So anyway… God works in mysterious ways. SpongeBob affects little brains, I get to be on TV.

I’ll keep you posted as things develop further…

Hi Phil! I'm going to wake up early in the morning to watch this. We just got the "What's in the Bible" DVD, and absolutely love it! We will be praying for you. As a side note, it took a scientific study to discover that watching sponge bob spaz out causes kids to be dumber? haha.

I've wondered if some of my son's poor behavior in the past wasn't the result of having watched too many cartoons. I'd be interested to hear Phil's take on the subject.
