Radio and television
Pixilated digital television: a giant step backwards : Pixilated TV
American Television: an even vaster wasteland in the 21st century.
by James K. Sayre
American network television has declined in quality in the last forty years or so. In the 21st century, network television programming has greatly expanded the "vast wastelands" concept that was first pointed out by Federal Communications Commission Chairman Newton Minnow, in his famous 1961 speech to the National Association of Television Broadcasters. Now prime-time television has large become the home for must-puke tv. Commericals are infesting most every television show. Sports shows in particular seem to have endless pop-up ads and previews, It is not enough for us to merely enjoy the present show. Heaven forbid. The television network is constantly hyping the next great thing that you can watch in thirty minutes, an hour or next week.
Since television and radio broadcasting is done on our publicly owned airways, we need to reclaim control from the present gang of corporate greed-meisters that are running television and radio for corporate profit alone.
