Great argument for killing your TV

The amazingly good Joe Bageant, author of "Deer Hunting with Jesus."

What's this got to do with Salem? Everything -- escaping the hive mind fashioned by corporate controlled TV (and don't kid yourself for a second that PBS is some big exception) is the first step to recognizing the importance of making your own place the place you truly inhabit, rather than merely occupy while you received coded messages about what to think from the corporate programmers.

Remember, why do you think they call it "programming"? Or, as Joe puts it,

Television is the software, the operating instructions for our society.
