Televised Ignorance

Recently, a person with great influence and is taken seriously by way too many people has made an extremely ignorant statement on national television. It was funny for the first 5 minutes after I saw it. I’m not laughing anymore and, in fact, I’m getting quite annoyed.

What you see on television is not factual information! 25% of it is advertising, and the rest of it is either (usually not very good) fiction, or fiction sold to you as fact. It’s just entertainment! The not so funny part about it is that you’re made to pay for it even when at least 25% of the time you spend watching television you are watching an advertisement! Stop taking things you see on television seriously!
