The government does not need Mind Control via TV while the channels show mind-rotting **** like X-Factor, Big Brother, and Soaps ! Anyway, I only watch BBC for it's advert-free programming and, of course, the living god of television, David Attenborough.

I used to like The Simpsons more than I do now. But just recently I watched the season premier and was so disappointed I decided that I can live without this show. I'm looking forward to the Halloween episodes tomorrow night though.

But the truth is Fox even admits to inserting messages into their shows. They spin it like it's a good thing but it goes to show that the writers are getting direction from the top down. The same is true with all of the major media conglomerates and ultimately they all answer to the same conspirators.

I don't have tv at my house any more - we watch movies and such but I cancelled the satellite and haven't missed it, except for some of the better documentary shows and cooking shows. But even those, it's just a passing thought.

Very wise you are... there's more than one person living under my roof, and not all agree! Maybe some day soon I can convince them to do away with it. I saw a great bumper sticker the other day. It said, "Kill all T.V.'s!"

I haven't completely cut the cord. I got rid of satellite about a year and a half ago and haven't missed it at all but I started Netflix. So when I get the itch I still have "tv".

I surprised myself when I quit listening to NPR (National Public Radio). I was a junky for years but decided they're really like all the rest. I haven't missed it either.

I don't watch TV. Why would I stay up until 11 to watch my favorite anime when I can watch all my favorite shows whenever I want online for free?

I have a Tv but only very rarely watch it. When I do I only watch nature and science documentaries (such as The Universe). Nat Geo and Eden are really the only channels I watch. I can't stand soaps and pretty much everything contains unnecessary violence, drama and suffering. A few years ago I watched part of an episode of Casualty and I felt physcially ill, not due to any blood (didn't see any), but the negativity of it all. I felt disturbed on a very deep level. It is the same when I read particular sorts of books.

My son is autistic and doesn't watch any TV at all. If I didn't love nature and science shows so much I would be well rid!

I no longer watch TV.

I have a TV just so I can put on the occasional commedic movie when 3D gets too boring for me.

Question is though...

How many supplant TV time for internet time? Regardless of frequency control, time spent in front of a computer and not with those we love could have similar effects. Not saying anything is "bad", just bring to light that the "influences" are in great abundance all around us.

Of course there is no "right way" to go about anything.

Personally, I am very uncomfortable with TV, as well as cell phones. They make me agitated and give me a headache.

I spend a lot of time watching Youtube. Not those awful featured videos or anything like that, just stuff I like. But I live alone.

Cellphones are known to be a health hazard. They emit high power microwave radiation that goes right into your brain when you hold them next to your ear. People shouldn't talk on cell phones.

Televisions can also emit radiation depending on your set up. If you have satellite TV, satellite dishes also emit high power radiation. You don't want to have your dish near your bedroom or living areas. TVs themselves are also known to emit radiation. But this can vary a lot depending on the type of TV.
