I think the reason I never watched it is that when I learned that the show existed (nearly three years after it premiered), I also heard some bad things about it in terms of the agenda it was trying...

I am pleased to say that I never saw a single episode of "24". The premise sounds ridiculous, and the plot lines sound appalling.

They're still around, but they mainly just issue press releases that are used for fundraising purposes. The last time any of those groups had any real influence on government was back in the days of...

Those groups have much less influence than they did back in the 1980's and early 1990's. In fact, I would say that they have almost zero influence. Big Money has won out over social responsibility....

I think there are still a lot of people who, like me, just don't want to have to do too much work to watch TV. TV should be something where you can just turn the set on, surf the channels, and have a...

As part of We The People, I expect the licensed airwaves to show some discretion and to exclude the worst kinds of things. Not every form of speech is permissible on broadcast radio or TV. That is a...

It's a shame that the Supreme Court doesn't always understand that. (The federal courts have weakened the FCC's powers and the powers of Congress.)

Not sure whether you're advocating more regulation or less. Cable TV is definitely not like the automobile market. With cars, each person is free to buy what he or she pleases or not buy anything at...

Looks fine to me. Nice, large, readable buttons, and the touch screen means that the number of physical buttons can be kept to a manageable few.

States that are entirely north of interstate 70 seem to give their local communities more control.
In a lot of states, municipalities don't get much respect.

If you don't want to download the app, you can watch directly at the ABC web site, but you do have to wade through the "shows" section to find the program you seek.
