2. Every Sunday I read posts on DU bitching about the guests on the pundit shows

And I always wonder, after this many years WTF did you expect?

The remote is your best friend, there has to be a Law & Order rerun on somewhere.

5. Yep. Chris Hayes and Melissa Harris Perry are also worthy of viewing.

One can stream it online. PBS usually has good stuff, too.

7. Never miss 'em

Sunday shows that actually make you think.

We have to get up at 5 to watch but we do it every Saturday & Sunday.

PBS? Meh. Your station might be OK but ours is running the Cat in the Hat right now.

8. I have 3 PBS channels.

I don't have cable. Most PBS stations have 3-4 channels on broadcast. Actually, on a clear day, with a properly adjusted antenna, I can also get the 3 GPB channels, as well. There is always something on one of them to watch, whether it's their own Sunday shows, kids shows, local programming, reruns of the week's evening shows, or cooking and travel shows. On Saturday afternoons, one can almost watch a "This Old House" marathon.

6. I understand your reaction, however:

It is a fact that was backed up by a recent study, sorry didn't save it, of the dominance of Republicans on the pundit shows where they get to spread the out right lies and distortions. For most of the year the cable news shows were dominated by coverage of the Republican primaries at the expense of actually covering the Republicans' "Do Nothing" campaign to destroy Obama regardless of the cost to the nation. Does it have an affect? I can't help from believing that for those Independents who are undecided such unbalanced treatment will have its intended affect.

4. Try the tennis channel -

that's pretty much all I watch unless it's fall and I can get the Packers. TVs are very over-rated.

9. Good lord, turn the channel.

I haven't watched any of those Sunday morning shows in years. They all suck.

10. The MSM always has been, and always will be, a propaganda arm for the 1%

 

Even though pathetic tools like Gingrich and Bachmann spout off easily refuted lies and ridiculous assertions, by giving them lots of air time, the MSM makes the conservative positions of the Obama administration seem almost/barely progressive.
