We dance around the topic of the media's role in driving public opinion and in dividing us... I was wondering if nonbelievers, skeptics and the like subject themselves to less mainstream media than their counterparts.
Do you currently receive programmed TV? Or are you among the set that parted company with satellite or cable? If no cable? Do you stream? If so, what are your streaming go tos?
6yrs now. The only time I see T.V. is at my parents house for dinner, or maybe a big football game. I despise the gimics used in modern commercials, it just furthers the dumbing down of the population. Also, the cost of it is rediculous concidering how much programming you actually see, and how much they make off of the commercials.
I seldon watch tv. Just news and weather because of winter. Not following any shows of any kind. Got Vucu digital collection of movies I liked for the boringest of days. Netflix for backup. Never interested on zombies or whatever new trend of shows is out there. Last comedy followed... Frazier. On Netflix of course. keep the cord for back up to back up but not being used. TV not turn on for weeks sometimes. Former cable employee pampered with every channel in the universe.
I am seriously thinking about it. The problem I have is that in my area the Charter Cable company has the only viable web access and I can only have internet if I get "the package". I would otherwise need to go with wireless which is a bit iffy and slow.
