Television is Dead by Steve Jennings

By: Steve Jennings

I don't watch TV anymore do you? If I do, it is the TV that's to the left of my computer and it has the sound off, almost like a radio use to play in the other room while I watched television as a kid (an afterthought at best). Goodbye commercials, goodbye network's, goodbye all things annoying and bloated. Now give me what I want. I want to see the traffic patterns one hour outside of Atlanta Georgia, live on my computer during morning and evening rush hours.

Can you do that CBS? Because that's so much more interesting than Survivor All Stars. I want to see what people really feel about the election, or the Tsunami, or the War in Iraq. Not some filtered views that are sponsored by cars and cookies. I'm going to read some blogs and check out The Drudge Report and The Onion. I'd rather create a website, download music, watch movies or research my news than watch reruns of Joey Tribiani or Carrie. I prefer to edit movies, create animations or learn a new program rather than sit on a couch and have my world dictated to me. The bottom line is television is chosen for you. You choose whatever you want on the web.
