LEAKED NETWORK MEMO REVEALS: Obama Controls Your Television Set
Big Hollywood/Breitbart ^ | October 15, 2009 | John Nolte

Posted on 10/15/2009 5:14:23 AM PDT by combat_boots

On September 10th of this year the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF) posted a press release informing the world that “from October 19-25, more than 60 network TV shows [will] spotlight the power and personal benefits of service,” and that this “unprecedented block of TV programming is the first wave of a multi-year ‘I Participate’ campaign.”

It’s like living in a dystopian novel. Our fearless leader appears before us daily, instructing us in how we must think.

I would, but.....I don’t have a TV.
Put it out on the curb in 1998 when I
discovered FreeRepublic.
Put a sign on it, “good TV” and it didn’t
sit there 10 minutes before some poor
addicted fool picked it up.

“....October 19-25, more than 60 network TV shows...”

I stopped watching network TV years ago. ABCNBCCBS, collectively know as DNC TV, are too political and too much to the left for me.

I will likely have the TV turned off, to avoid the too often heard and seen ideas and voice of the ONE.

How is a “press release” a “leak?” I always thought of a leak as something officially unauthorized that goes through back channels.

Norman Lear ruined television with “All In The Family.” It’s been downhill since then...

from Wikipedia (tainted):

Produced by Norman Lear and based on the British television series Till Death Us Do Part[2], the show broke ground in its depiction of issues previously considered unsuitable for U.S. network television comedy, such as racism, homosexuality, women's liberation, rape, miscarriage, breast cancer, menopause and impotence.

I love good TV and hate the bad.

I watch mostly educational shows on the History, Discovery, and Science channels along with the military channel (great stuff on ‘tet in 1968’ and my favorite....warbirds).

occasionaly I will watch an old movie.....

and the Fox News Channel...as flawed as it is, is head and shoulders over the rest.

Nothing wrong with GOOD TV. bad TV does bite the big one.

Good question.

However, I did see a commercial last night from Disney, which is giving out a 1-day pass for 1 day of volunteer service, IIRC. I wondered about the connection at that time.

Ours is off more then on. The coolest feature on all TV’s is the on/off button. My big tv often doubles as a monitor so I can read FR from the couch.

Even DirectTV is full of “agenda”. The white, straight, Christian, married, male, is the biggest boob in the world. We are the only one not allowed the complain. To see us on tv, we are to dumb to tie our shoes.

This crap works with uneducated shoeless Kenyans, as Hugo Chavez is showing not so much with Venezuelans.

In America it’s just laughter to see a Kenyan try to teach communism to educated people. Sure the ‘free suckers’ crowd will bite on anything with ‘free’ but people know.

Can he fly with his giant ears?

I have two TIVOs, so who cares ... scroll on by.

No TV here. Youtube is great. I recently watched the chariot race from Ben Hur, incredible. I only wish I knew how to make it full-monitor.

Also on YT I watch Fred and Ginger dance, and the Mongolians hunting wolves with golden eagles.

this is for a little relaxation, as I work at home on the computer.

I guess this matters - I watch two shows on TV weekly - I wont watch Hussein on TV or listen to him on the radio.

Let these guys go out of business. Stop pandering to shows because you don’t have anything better to do. While I’m on this rant - Get the kids off the couch and outside where they will think of something to do - not only will it be good for them but it will keep them from being indoctrinated with all the latest liberal lamestreem ideas.

Teach them to read. It opens up a whole new world!

I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book. -Groucho Marx

“wish I knew how to make it full-monitor.”

I believe all or nearly all youtube can be made full screen by clicking onto the rectangle that has the upper right quadrant in white (it is at the lower right corner of the actual viewing window)....after watching, press esc on your keyboard to go back to normal

this one works as described:

You make it full monitor by clicking on the full screen symbol, looks like a square. Usually on the right side of the video when your cursor is on it.

I had to deselect “hardware acceleration” in my system to do it.

I am very unhappy with the digital crap.

Yeah, alright, the pic is better. Yeah, my machine, if I move it around and do channel inventory gives me 27-29 channels.

If a freakin gnat sneezes outside, it all goes to hell...
