Relax everybody, Murdoch only got one copy and has locked himself in his bedroom with a box of Kleenex.

Hm... It explains why National Geographic's shows has been very low in scientific accuracy and very high on sensationalism lately...

** THIS.

All the "Science" channels have gone that way.

Even TV for more educated people has gone into the trash.

The race to the bottom in the dumbing down of a nation continues at a breakneck pace.

Probably in production as we speak, along with "When Dinosaurs and Humans Shared the Earth", "Secrets of the Bible Code" and other b.s.

what a joke, those learning channels through in the towel 10 years ago.
Their shows are equivalent to E!, It really can't get much worse. Why did it happen? The internet opened learning for those that want to learn on demand. These stations changed to moving demographics, cant blame the execs.

This fearmongering is hillarious though. in reality its garbage buying garbage. TLC is such a bad perpetrator it should be sued for fradulent advertising. Fox is much closer to news than TLC is to learning.

Current listings for EST
History channel- Mountain Men
Nat Geo- Southern Justice
TLC- Cake Boss
Discovery- Naked and Afraid

omg what will we do without Southern Justice! Boycott FOX to save Southern Justice!
honestly cant tell if OP hasn't turned on TV or is trolling.

Something I find enormously hilarious about this thread is how much people are blaming Fox for the erosion of the science channels, and yet Fox has only just bought into Nat Geo. It's like you are see this has just happened and are retro-actively blaming them for the erosion in quality that occurred under other ownership.

That would be like me blaming Obama for our initial invasion of Iraq.

For Scientific accuracy, there is only one channel on TV that gives 100% truth 100% of the time, and ATS membership will agree with me.

Scroll down for your viewing pleasure...............

So this deal was announced on Wednesday (yesterday for those that are unaware), and NOW we see posts lamenting the crappy shows it has aired for years as Murdoch's fault?

Pure hilarity...

Here's the deal:
Nat Geo has simply switched hands from liberal zealots, to not-quite-as-liberal zealots. There hasn't been anything trustworthy from National Geographic for decades, so no great loss here.

Ratings is what pays the bills, kids, and Rupert knows how to get the ratings.

Only to find that there is no topless tribes in Scandinavia.

Well, now we have the reason. The content at NG has been steadily declining as of recent in scientific value, and they have delved into areas where they have never been before, including pseudo-scientific speculation. It will be interesting to see where this ultimately goes.

I have a bookshelf full of National Geographic magazines going all the way back to the mid 60's. I get a kick out of pulling them out every now and then reading through them.

Guess I'll be hanging on to to these little gems, it looks like they're going to be worth some good coin one day...


RIP National Geographic.

Ugh... what's next... the Monkey bachelorette? Was that show even on FOX?

All questions I don't care to have answered.

The difference of course is those "liberal zealots" at least cared about things like:

1. The Scientific Method.
2. Journalistic Credibility and Integrity
3. Basic fact checking.

We are turning quickly into a society where all forms of media cater to the lowest common denominator.

In 10 years there may be nothing for the person caught between crap like the stuff on "NatGeo" and "The Science Channel" and scholarly academic journals like Nature or Astrophysical Journal.
That will be a shame for everyone who isn't personally invested in Fox/Newscorp.

I'm not blaming fox but they certainly accelerated the "facts be damned ratings are the only thing that matter" culture.

Tonight on National Geographic: We will discuss the omnivorous Vulpes; a creature of mystique and cunning. Many stories of being "outfoxed" have been told around numerous campfires around the globe. As a misleading creature, it will lead you into a false sense of security and devour and feed off of you fear and ignorance... while maintaining the façade of security.

Don't miss tonight's National Geographic after Fox News expose on Iran and why you should fear them... coming up at 12.

Since 1888, the National Geographic Society has stood for science, discovery and storytelling. Its yellow-bordered magazine has served as the ultimate stage for award-winning photography, depicting the wonders of the world, and the group has supported pursuits as diverse as the underwater explorations of Jacques-Yves Cousteau and Jane Goodall’s study of chimpanzees in Tanzania.


Well people.

In 1888 the primary use a national geographic magazine was toilet paper.

Cause the real thing was a rarity.


Back to demagoguing Murdoch.
