Good Riddance Idiot Box

Viewers Pull Plug on U.S. Cable Television

"The number of people subscribing to US cable television services has suffered its biggest decline in 30 years as younger, tech-savvy viewers lead an exodus to web-based operations, such as Hulu and Netflix.

The total number of subscribers to TV services provided by cable, satellite and telco operators fell by 119,000 in the third quarter, compared with a gain of 346,000 in the third quarter of 2009, according to SNL Kagan, a research company."

Television is a technology on the way out. Doesn't matter what whizbang new technology they entice you to buy or how many gazillion choices are offered, the manipulators and propagandists and peddlers are losing because of one stark fact. Television forces you to be a passive consumer accepting what you're given while internet users are active participants in deciding what information or pleasures they want.
Television is quickly becoming the medium for only drooling, dead-from-the-neck-up, Fauxified, Palin fascinated troglodytes.
