When television was in its infancy it was described as a vast wasteland by some because of the light weight fare which was predominant. So those of us who loved the old black and white movies needed to justify our allegiance to the tube by thinking of ways it acted for the good and probably was why National Public Radio and Television became important. (They no longer need public support and since they are left leaning don't fit the criteria any more.) Can you imagine how much more of your taxes will be used for government approved media under the Dems?
It has become so pervasive that we now lump it together with the rest of what we call the media. So television, radio, "newspapers" and magazines fall into that category. So what?

Pravda (which I looked up to double check) means "the truth" and was the official (censored) news supplied in Russia for nearly 100 years. So, starting next year we should probably be thinking about a petition to change the names of "official" media outlets so we can tell the players if any opposition is allowed.
ACORN is now shown to have tax liens against them. What a bunch!
ps-forgot to mention how much we enjoyed, with our children, Captain Kangaroo, Howdy Doody and the youngest ones, Sesame Street.
