The question that begs to be asked is "where are the parents/guardians" of Jones? Child actors are exploited and usually don't turn out too well as adults though Kirk Cameron is a notable exception. As for those who trivialize the filth on television, I have to believe that the advertisers don't spend billions on ads without some expectation that they influence the public. And if ads influence the public why wouldn't the shows themselves? I don't know whether the entertainment industry leads the culture or reflects the culture. It may be a combination of both. But clearly there are cultural indicators that point to trouble. I think Bozell makes some good points.
Angus T. Jones told the truth. In a religious video posted on YouTube, the former child actor who's the "half" man of the CBS sitcom "Two and a Half Men" shocked the celebrity press by saying "I don't want to be on it. Please stop watching it. Please stop filling your head with filth."

Calling this show "filth" is like calling your Christmas tree an evergreen. Yet about 14 million Americans still love filling their head with this filthy show, and they don't want to be told what they're doing.

It doesn't surprise, then, that the pundits have turned on...
