Two thoughts

As I read Bill O’Reilly’s column, “Fleeting TV – with good reason,” in the Dec. 11 edition, two thoughts came to mind.

First, there’s no doubt in my mind that those who are watching this mindless pig slop to which he referred are probably among the “low information” voters who fell for all candidate Obama’s wonderful, inspiring speeches (“We’re going to change the way things are done Washington,” remember?) and helped elect him. Second, older readers may recall a statement by FCC head, Newton Minnow, I think back in the 60s, who characterized TV as a “vast wasteland.”
