Here’s the link to the blog post I tried to link to in my reply to Terry’s comment on “Moral Imagination: Beauty, Truth, and Goodness” — Catholic in Brooklyn: TV: From Vast Wasteland to Vast Cesspool. Thanks for writing this post, Catholic in Brooklyn! You’ve saved me a rant of my own.
For the record, I quit watching “television” three years ago; I now watch selected television shows available in streaming video via the internet, because I can choose only shows that I actually want to see (and see them whenever I like), I don’t have commercial interruptions, and I can watch shows that haven’t been on broadcast or cable TV for years. Plus, I get to watch some foreign shows that don’t make it to American TV.
