Change we can believe in, in reforming the media


We could have a comprehensive Health channel where Orthodox and Alternative Medicine MD's discusses various diseases and conditions and all the various options, theories, and treatments.

We could have a comprehensive mental health channel to promote awareness, advocacy, rights, reducing stigma and discrimination, etc.

We could have clinical psychologists running talk shows (How much credulence does one give to a Jerry Springer?)

If we have clinical psychologists analyzing every single type of Jungian shadow ridden crime on the news...

We could have a comprehensive fitness channel(s) from conventional to alternative.

We could have a channel(s) for all religions/faiths/spirituality.

We could have a channel(s) for minorities, ethnicities, with their cultures, customs, values, art and entertainment.

We could have a talk show channel with culturally sensitive clinical psychologists understand tensions and shadow material related to race relations.

We could have a on demand news channel system that presents news from every major city in every country around the world that would promote a real democracy to happen.

We could have a news talk show that think tanks on how to integrate or at best stratify liberal and conservative insight into any inquiry, policy, or political action.

We could have a channel devoted entirely to human rights.

Women's rights..

Children's rights...

LGBT rights...

Economic, social and cultural rights...

We could have a news channel devoted entirely to sustainable development.

We could have a news channel devoted entirely to everything ecology.

We could have music channels for every major genre that would promote music appreciation.

We could have an educational channel for each of the sciences

And for history which we have...

And for sports which we have already...

And for food which we have...

And art of all periods and styles which we necessarily don't...

And books and literature of all genres...

And hobbies...

And more...

If that happened what effect would that have on the world?

A change in awareness...

A change in compassion...

A change in appreciation of all things...

A change in understanding everyone different from us more...

A change with a new definition of a pluralistic or integral spirituality or at most tolerance...

A change being more in touch with nature and Gaia and the biosphere...

A change in a person's ideals and the pursuance of those ideals...

A change in more healthy relationships...

A change in coping better with one's symptoms...

A change in being more physically healthy and less prone to disease and doctor visits...

A change that I'm strongly waiting for to come...

A change that you all strongly want to as well...

A change that we believe in...

This is Gerard from SAS, and I approve this message.

What about Atheists? Do we just get a test pattern?

Can I assume agnostics get to view the various types of fences they might enjoy sitting on?

And there still wouldn't be anything on worth watching!

Even if our scars donít match thereís no wrong you canít make better if you can figure out a way to change your mind.

And sure thereís things I regret not doing or doing. Those thoughts climb my spine like spiders, and then Iím really the stranger in my own bed,

and that ball of nervous gets pushed into every crack. Thatís whatís holding the bricks together.

They should be allowed to show naked ladies on broadcast TV... and all that other stuff you mentioned too.

In other nations they do. Here we're censored by the Fascist Communications Commission, plus the religious right that has a hissy fit over anything. The right has loons that worry which Tele-Tubby may be gay, after all. The only boobs you'll see exposed on TV here are generally those that hold political office.

I think we do have some channels for some of those things you mentioned. The main thing would be if anyone would watch those channels though.

Naked ladies are essential to a free society.

Yeah, but most of us can only afford basic cable.

Goodbye cable TV, hello internet. Seriously, why waste your time on a dying medium. We need the FCC to tell comcast that they don't own the internet yet. ; - ;

Since Jerry Falwell died last year we no longer have anybody to warn us which cartoons characters are homosexual. And what about all the bi-curious cartoons that doing it on the "down low"? Sure, another right wing nut job could try to take over Falwell's role, but nobody can replace a man who was without a doubt the leading authority on cartoon character sexuality.

You could move to Europe. Apparently they're less hung up about it over there.

That does bring up an interesting thing. From what I understand, Falwell was almost like the fundie protestant pope. With him dying, the religious right is kind of rudderless. From whom do they take orders now? How will they know which way to vote? Who becomes the next 'pope'?
