I was just watching a prison documentary show called Lockdown and the episode was about the Tent City prison and the warden didn't have tvs for the
inmates. Well, the governer said he had to let the inmates have tv. Even though the prison is outdoors and there are other things to do, and even
though these people are criminals and it would cost more money, the warden was forced to let them all watch tv... He stubbornly obliged but decided on
what channels they could watch. C-Span, cooking shows, weather channel, etc... However he did set up a bicycle that would power a tv that inmates
could choose their programming, as he is a staunch supporter of excercise.
I know its not the same, but I just thought I would mention it. And I have been in dirt poor welfare apartments where a 3 bedroom apartment is like
$90 a month for a family of 6, and they still had 3 or 4 tvs... So maybe it isn't exactly a law, but it has been made possible for everyone to have
access to tv... Even prisoners. However prisoners can have privileges revoked as a behavioral control method...
