Ah yes, back in the good old days of the Fairness Doctrine.

"...entertain, inform, and educate..."

None of which broadcast media seem to do now. (Also, what Mr. Vale said.)

Ah yes, the national anthem to wake you up so you can get up off the couch and go to bed, I remember it well.

Then along came Free Markets. The 7 scariest words from the Government, (no, not that your loved one was killed in action). Citizens United. Wealthy Aussie welcomed into American and its media business for political propaganda profiteering.

Like the 24/ FOX. In place for a president to watch and use as his agenda in-feed.
They have taken the sound foundation of a 4 legged stool. redesigned it with 1 leg. That you can continue to use as a seat to rest. But must provide your own balance. Cost savings, you know.
You see, 3 and 4 legged stools are for those who really deserve them. Decided by the same people that have control of them and their children who inherit the royal power of control.

The Elysium movie but over stools and their legs.

Our local station always showed this when they signed off, too. I cannot remember which one it was. There were three stations, ABC, NBC, and CBS. ABC was channel 9, NBC was channel 5, and CBS was channel 12. BUT, there was one UHF station too, an "educational" station. It was this station that had horror movies on late at night, hosted by a local yokel character named the "Cool Ghoul." Real educational.

That was all you got. Via your TV antenna on top of the house.
