Wait...did I miss another dancing with the stars?!
dammit, I really need to set my recorder! every third thread talks about how dancing with the stars is being watched..you would think its on
24/7..yet I always miss it!
Yes, I know you were generalizing (watch simple tv shows verses everyone breathlessly watching cspan)
I find though that people tend to gripe about such things, but their personal life..they may have watched about 4 minutes of cspan a year before
turning it off and finding shows -they- find worthy of watching.
"Dancing with the stars is lame...same with American idol..both rot peoples brains
oh, but the walking dead..ya, big fan of that...that is different, because I enjoy it"
Here is the overall solution
record and televise it on cspan. they may have a total of 4 viewers while they do it, however its not about trying to win an emmy...its about a
public record transparent process that, if necessary, can be backed up and viewed by many sources.
Do we need to watch every election count, debate about a bill, etc etc etc? hell no..thats why we have newscasters getting paid...they watch it, they
report (hopefully accurately..its their job if they are found lying), and if there is anything wonky going on..then we check closer...until then
sure, watch the dancing.
sorry. pet peeve being hit on.
