Startling drop in TV viewing

"Where have all the viewers gone?
NEW YORK (AP) -- Maybe they're outside in the garden. They could be playing softball. Or perhaps they're just plain bored.
In TV's worst spring in recent memory, a startling number of Americans drifted away from television the past two months: More than 2.5 million fewer people were watching ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox than at the same time last year, statistics show

Quickly followed by laughable assertions that this sick dinosaur medium may be as popular as ever:

"The networks argue that viewership is changing, not necessarily declining."
"Advertisers don't believe that the drop in viewership is as dramatic as the numbers suggest..."
"People are not consuming less television, they're watching it in different ways, and the measurements haven't caught up."

I'll say it again. television is a pathetic, diseased wasteland of manipulation, fit only to be diagnosed and studied as probably the prime progenitor of our society's nauseating pathology. TV is for mouth breathing, brain dead losers who allow themselves to be powerless, mind controlled consumers.
And more people are realizing it, good for them.
