  •  You know, TV started out pretty smart, (6+ / 0-)

    back in its early days.  Symphonies, serious plays, art.  Problem is, the great mass of people are bored with intelligent programming, so it doesn't make money.  See, as recent examples, the History Channel and the Learning Channel.  All their good intentions have been dashed, and now any channel that started out selling education has devolved to true crime, conspiracy theories, and haunted buildings.

    Anyhow, my point is that I don't totally blame broadcasters.

    •  A lot of smart stuff does well. (1+ / 0-)

      TLC and the History Channel saw a niche for right wing leaning crap and promptly filled it. I wonder if their ratings are that much better now?
