Propaganda on TV

Stuff on TV was first entertaining. Programming changed to make it “more instructive” when media companies bought up the TV production companies.

The left is currently broadcasting Left Wing Friendly programs to garner support to protect their big government agenda. Programming is up on the benefits of having Federal Parks, so we are getting to see these without having to go there. These are mostly on Public Television Channels.


CSPAN is currently broadcasting Left Wing hand-wringing panels who are attempting to spin their agenda to make it sound more palatable. But they are really revealing their strategy.


TV Programs


TV programming was initially determined by what was popular on radio, live performance vaudeville and movies. Radio was a way to bring news and entertainment into the home. Radio had news, sports, music, drama and comedy.


TV brought the visual element radio lacked. It reduced the need to see live performances and go to the movie theater or sports stadium. In the 1950s, you could see stage shows, musical shows, comedy performances, sports, movies and cartoons. . 


In the 1960s and 1970s, TV had a ton of variety shows with lots of music and comedy to accompany news and movies. There was a popular music renaissance, but the US economy was riddled with inflation.


By the 1980s, the variety shows stopped and movies dominated the TV. Reagan had been elected and the Left needed to gin up the propaganda. Schools were dumbing down and a new crop of sheep needed to be influenced.


Baywatch showed overpaid California lifeguards driving new cars and living in nice apartments. The same for Cop shows and Firefighter shows. They were suggesting that we get government jobs. Jerry Springer was the first bad behavior show, but these have increased beyond reason


TV still has sports, cartoons, old movies and reruns of some variety shows, but a new crop of programs have appeared.


Naked and Afraid, living in Alaska and a host of outdoor programs show how to survive after our economy tanks.


The Ancient Alien Theorist show suggests that there probably is no God.


Crime stories permeate the TV options


Buying Junk to restore and resell and home repair and upgrading shows give us some practical knowledge.


Shows about food and travel and factory tours allow us to see these places without having to travel there.


Spanish and Chinese Channels are abundant Shopping channels now peddle mostly jewelry.


TV programming morphed from entertainment in the 1950s to include a lot of indoctrination in the 1980s.
