    So much TV is vulgar and obsessed with sex, says Humphrys

    Having not bothered to watch television for nearly five years, John Humphrys was "quite shocked" when he emerged from his "Rip van Winkle state" and switched it on again, he said yesterday.


    "So much of it seemed not just vulgar and obsessed with sex but altogether more confrontational than I had remembered."

    "populist pap"

    This article discusses the decline of TV entertainment in the UK but I doubt if the Brit's TV trash can compare to our vast wasteland.

    I'm really embarrassed to think how many Americans tune in to watch all that taudry toilet humor and cheap sexual innuendo. Do people really laugh at that stuff? Or are they just conditioned to watching whatever drivel the networks have to offer?

    If television is a reflection of our culture we're in big trouble.

    There is very, very little worth seeing on T.V. Great Britian imports lots of "trash"
    from the U.S.A., as well as making it itself. In general, what's modern is shallow
    and vacuous, anything decent is likely to be old and very, very familiar.

    I agree with you, completely. Some family
    members of mine and I discuss this exact issue at
    our kitchen table in our home, practically every day.
    Myself--(personally) I have always had a firm belief
    that there are only so many things young chldren in
    our nation should be subjected to, and it, honestly
    leaves me feeling depressed, quite constantly. I
    mean--as much as I love my country, and a country
    of freedom at that--America has forgotten about the
    children whom are living and breathing on this earth.
