Did You Ever Want To Shoot Your TV?

I'M OLD ENOUGH TO RECALL THE DAYS BEFORE CABLE NEWS, THAT TIME WHEN THE PUBLIC WAS CONSTANTLY BOMBARDED BY THE THE ONLY 3 NETWORKS--NBC, CBS AND ABC CONTROLLED THE AIR WAYS AND NO DISSENTING VOICES WHERE EVER HEARD ON THE BOOB TUBE.  OFTEN I JUST TURNED IT OFF, BUT OCCASIONALLY I THOUGHT ABOUT SHOOTING THE DAMN THING; BUT RECOILED FROM THAT KNOWING I COULD NOT WATCH THE NEXT EPISODE OF "GUN SMOKE" OR "BONANZA".  FINALLY AFTER MANY YEARS OF ANGUISH "FOX NEWS" AND A FEW OTHERS CAME ON TV AND I BECAME CONTENT KNOWING I COULD SWITCH THE CHANNEL AND HEARD SOME COMMON SENSE. BUT NOW, WITH THE UNFOLDING EVENTS IN EGYPT, NO MATTER WHAT CHANNEL I TURN ON IT'S THE SAME WITH NO DISSENTING VOICES TO BE HEARD.  THE HERD MENTALITY HAS AGAIN GRIPPED THOSE IN THE MANY NETWORKS AND AGAIN I "WANT TO SHOOT MY TV"!!!
