I have spent the past half hour so far, with my remote, going from one to another of these cable news networks. Occassionaly.........they will show a one second snippet of one of the --several-- World-Significant breaking ongoing crisis/events. MOSTLY I have been -trying- to be dodging these OBNOXIOUS STUPID ANNOYING STINKING lighthearted irrelevent commercials with the prancing skinny/shiny ugly ugly grinning c er, women in them. In between 'news' about musicians or whatever they are, I never heard of and paid attention to.

Someone, help lets get a crowd together and try to pull themeselves out from themselves. Oh the humanity, Aaaaahhhhggggg!!!

Ultimately it is the public's fault though.

We leave our TV on thus triggering ratings and promoting even more of the garbage.

The only solution is to turn the TV off. And to convince others to do the same.

No matter how much we disagree with their absurd bs, leaving the TV on says "I agree".

Thank God they made an "off" button!

STOP WATCHING TV ALL TOGETHER !

It is poison for your mind.

Why would a person choose to be lied to all day.

I haven't watched TV since 1998. Best thing I ever did.

I think I know what your trying to say and I tend to agree. However, I genuinly believe you are wasting precious energy trying to accomplish this "from" ats. At the time of this post, 218000 members....even if we all could agree on a particular issue, 218,000 people (in percentage terms) is not even a drop in the bucket. Now factor in some members are from countries that literally "hate" americans, because of the behavior and actions of our "diplomats". I guess I am saying, not enough people on here really care...they just like hearing themselves "talk" or seeing what they themselves have typed.IMHO

if your going to be lied to by the tv at least choose a better quality of lying, watch al jazera (from what I've seen of them they seem to be the most honest tv news.) my grandfather also swears by the russian news, its called "russia today" or somthing, not watched my self but apparently from time to time there brutally honest about america

Things seem to be warming up everywhere! Could this be global warmings real meaning? I too am so sick of the cable networks pathetic renderings. So much so that I've cancelled my contract and can live free of the nausea of the news "shows".If we all did the same, even though we're only 218000, it might get the ball rolling. Everything seems to be rolling right now, so let's gain momentum.

Turn off the TV already!!! Get online and goto Al Jazeera!! Thats real news there... I started watching it when egypt broke out in protests, and american media wasnt covering it, but now the only thing i bother to watch is Al Jazeera English.

I think Al Jazeera needs a new name, to most americans it just sounds like "terrorist network" or something... but it actually stands for "The Island"... I would trust their story coverage over any MSM outlet

You are not wrong, but what sucks is knowing that the cable /satellite t.v.providers, get paid by customers to view the commercials that the advertisers pay them to disseminate.

If the Federal Government/military tv's weren't always on CNN.....they'd have like 5 total viewers.

Americans ceased buying newspapers and the big media mafia's been trying to get Obama to give them a bailout since they're no longer generating revenue.

GM ran with "An American Revolution".....sure was. Americans voted with their wallets running away.

Thank god I get Australia's news from my cable provider. It has NEWS on it. The commercials aren't 30 decibals higher than the normal programming. Sweet.
