Feed your head

So when he goes after the stuffed shirts that are network news anchors, the results are definitely worth reading.

What's a news anchor? Twenty years ago I saw one on TV telling us how bad Reagan was and how good the Soviets were. I did not believe it so I turned-off the news and did not listen to them anymore.

Network news seems so Industrial Age nowadays. TV is an entertainment medium not to be taken seriously when it comes to communicating information. The good news is that more people think like me nowadays and just don't bother with the TV.
