We’re not regular viewers of “Sesame Street,” and we’re not sure why they decided to post this clip, but a lot of reporters are finding it really, really depressing. You see, Cookie Monster wants to be a journalist, but instead of demanding a union, a living wage, heath insurance, and a retirement package, he settles for … a cookie.

We like that Cookie Monster got himself a real reporter’s hat just like the New York Times’ Glenn Thrush.

Now imagine Cookie Monster is Jim Acosta and the cookie is a microphone.
