I agree with the article to an extent. If what we viewed on TV did NOT affect our actions, TV as a consumer product would cease to exist. We have to sell those used Buick's after all.
I would just like to see a studio put out an old fashion show( juiced up) along the lines of Bonanza, Rat Patrol, the Rifleman, All in the Family etc... Something like a Louis L'Amoure book each week.
Typical good vs. evil, and what is construed as right and wrong in a traditional sense.
It would sell big time; but, like the print media, MSNBC et. al, they don't care if they go bankrupt. They refuse to foster, or promote traditional values. Too bad really, they could make a good buck!
