I used to love the history channel, even though sometimes it referred to a.d. and b.c. instead of c.e. and b.c.e. sometimes it got it right. but these days the history channel's programming appears to be mostly stuff like "the real noah's ark meets aliens from area 51." that's okay; there's always the science channel, right? so what's on RIGHT NOW? "biblical conspiracies." maaaaa, there's nothing on tee veeeeeeee!

Murdock bought it a few years back and dumbed it down.

i assume you mean the history channel, which is owned by a&e, which in turn is a joint venture between disney and espn (which is weird because espn is owned by disney). last year, murdoch didn't buy disney; disney bought 20th century fox from murdoch, who stepped down from same. fox news was not part of the deal. i can find no indication that murdoch owns the history channel. apparently fox did take over nat geo, which is a pity. now, admittedly all these subsidiaries are all tangled up together, and one source says he still owns 21st through a family trust while many others outline the deal with disney. so he could end up owning the thing that owns the thing that is affiliated with the thing that owns the thing that owns some of the history channel, but he didn't buy the history channel as far as i can tell.

@genessa my bad. National Geographic, mag and TV, is what I was thinking of

@powder yeah, pity about that, not that i spent much time there; i think by the time i discovered it, it was already... shall we say impaired? though i remember seeing cosmos (the new one) on it. was that before or after?

the science channel still has good stuff on it, despite this, but all day yesterday was "loud, noisy, big machinery with heavy metal music in the background to make you think it's exciting and it's got the word 'engineer' in it so it's science" type shows. 'sigh

Yeah, they really messed those channels up. They used to be so good, now they are practically worthless.
