Sesame Street Tackles The Word 'Reporter' (VIDEO)

Somebody give Sesame Street a Pulitzer Prize!

On Tuesday, the beloved kids' show trained its adorable gaze on what must be its greatest "Word of the Day" ever: "reporter!" Sesame Street did a deep investigative series on what, exactly, a reporter is. OK, so really they just asked Elmo and people on the street, but it was still awesome. Maybe next time, Sesame Street can solve some of our political issues by making the word "sequester" way cuter than it actually is.

Check out Elmo in the clip above, and the on-the-street investigative report here.
