My decision was prompted because the bills were so high. Did I need that? A gazillion channels to seduce my brain into jelly? No. I didn't want to hear the propaganda from biased media, watch endless commercials (did you know in the beginning there weren't any on cable), telling me what to buy. I was already weaned off foreign made products.
So up went the antenna and I get one entertainment channel, and I don't listen much to that. I confess my
addiction to Big Bang Theory, Who's That Girl, and that gruesome "The Following", only because it reminds me of Stephen King novels. Be that as it may, I get my news on the internet from sources I believe report the news we don't get on tv.
Think about this article. They are taking away your right for information and guiding you to the left to skewer your intellect and make you forget you have a right to watch.
That's all you have to know.
