The British have done this magnificently. The BBC, hardly a hotbed of conservatism, has produced programming vastly better than anything Americans have produced and which is delightfully free of ideological straitjackets. Those of us who have watched series like Last of the Summer Wine, All Creatures Great and Small, Lovejoy Mysteries, All You Being Served?, and Yes, Prime Minister, or series like I, Claudius, know that government bureaucracies like the BBC, when serious about entertaining without preaching, create wonderful programming. It is a testament to these treasures that the viewer cannot guess about the politics of the actors or the producers. The programs deal with the human condition as it truly is.

Vodka Zombie: Jackson Herring: Good lord that article is a mess. Are they concerned about programming on NPR and PBS, or about lowest common denominator stuff like Honey Boo Boo? Are they concerned about PC Programming, or about MTV?

Their concern reminds me of my racist grandmother's concern the day a black family moved in down the street.


My Grandfather on my dad's side of the family made my father executor of his Will, stipulated: "Don't let a negro family move in my house." This was late 90's/early 2000's before the whole Tea Party really started disrupting my father's brain waves... So, he sold the house to a gay couple. We laughed for weeks about that one.

FTFA: "overtly preachy leftist cant reinforce the condition that, as a people, we increasingly cannot share wholesome and common entertainment and recreation."

Fox and Fox news cover a lot more T&A than other news channels, though sometimes they do it for "moral" reasons where they can tut-tut about such liberal behavior as drunken beach bikini contests with long clips so viewers can realize how depraved THOSE people are. Other times their message seems to be that thinking or feminist women are bad and women should be only be defined by how "hot" they are. That sure is some wholesome objectivation there. At least their bimbos look really clean and wear the proper level of heavy makeup.

Diogenes: vpb: Diogenes: "public schools and university education"

After reading that piece, I can agree there's a problem there. But not the one this dunce is talking about.

Honestly, does anyone even proofread at the laughably-named American Thinker? There was a piece last week by one of their editors. It had misspellings in the title.

Only librul e-lites would notice something like that.

My 6th grade teacher would disagree. "But what about my content?" "I can't get to the content." *whips out red pen*

But considering the writers and readers of American Thinker dropped out in 5th grade I guess I can understand.


You can't seriously stay in public school when your forced to keep your sonbrother. That's why homeschooling is the way to go.

Yes, as long as it's state funde, not federally funded and produced by conservative Republican governors. Because there's no chance that a Democrat could ever replace a Republican as a state Governor and start producing liberal TV programs.

Keep your damn stereotypes straight, if the left are a bunch of hoity toity, arugula eating, "I don't even own a television" cultural elite types, then surely theyre not responsible for te creation or having an audience of "here comes honey boo boo".

Sure the local organic coop has gossip rags at the checkout, it's a grocery store, but I bet Walmart has a better selection.
