Kosh,in the one or two hours a day in the bar i'm stuck with that damn thing on....in my lifetime tv has reached a pinnacle of death,destruction,exaggerated threat,slanted stories,deception,and flat out fucking lying....any semblance of unbiased reporting and jounalism has vanished from ALL sides...and we wonder why kids seem more fucked up today.....when i talk to someone sits planted in front of that thing all day my most common response is 'WHAT!? thats not even remotely true,look it up'.....and i get back,'oh,i didnt know that'....sheeesh...

Well, in all fairness, you couldn't have quoted those figures if they weren't available (which doesn't mean I disagree with you, by the way, about the animal excrement on television). As for Amy's comments, I take them to mean we shouldn't quit trying to improve.

Don't watch the news. There's lots of other stuff being broadcast.

JP,thx......BO,keep trying is all we can ever do, but once in awhile it would be nice to acknowledge how the trying is working out,thx..........Phyllis, i dont have TV,like i said above i'm only exposed to it in the bar,thx.....

my intent was not to diss those hooked on the toob, i know most are and as in all things 'to each his own'.....my problem is the total,absolute misrepresentation in the reporting of "news" that so many nowadays accept as 'facts'.....to me its just mindblowingly surreal....and this applies to all sides...
