it seems to me that we are allowing TV to rule our lives.

Just turn it off. I haven't had one for over 20 years.

How about forcing tv to assign each show to a classification
Socialized television? I think Donald Trump is on top of this one! News must be classified "Fake" or "Real".
The government should control the internet too! And the radio waves!
A unified government controlled message........Let's get Americans all back on the same team!

MAGA /s

See? You let them socialize medicine and they won't know where to stop.

Are you sure you're not a capital S Socialist?

I can never ever get rid of my televisions.
I love films too much.
But I've been consuming my news via computer for some time now.
NO CNN, MSNBC, FOX or any other cable outlet except on the rare occasion that a breaking story is happening.

I do not watch ANY of the pundit shows and really only check out the various YouTube clips of them occasionally if a friend insists.

But my TV sets are my mini-movie theaters.

I can respect that. I read books and have little interest in films. But if you're sitting around watching Gunsmoke reruns for the 44th year in a row maybe you've got a tv problem.

I like the punkins, btw.
