WORD

Television is a device that permits people who haven't anything to do to watch people who can't do anything - Fred Allen

The people on teevee can't do anything? Bullhockey. There isn't a teevee "news" department out there that isn't succeeding wildly with a campaign of propaganda by omission, distortion, and obfuscation!

It isn't safe to watch teevee unless you know in advance it's YOU who's being programmed.

Not even having the wise and perceptive Cesar Millan on teevee can redeem the act of television watching.
