Yes, me too.
Talking heads is really a waste of time. The information content is
too slow and almost all of it is spin, propaganda and lies. Talking
heads rarely get picked up on errors, so it becomes a part of the
process 'If you repeat a lie often enough it becomes accepted as
truth'. And anything on TV has this theory of 'balance', so that every
scientific truth uttered has to be 'balanced' by giving equal time to
utter nonsense.

Good drama has disappeared from TV. It is all roman circuses now.
People being murdered, raped and tortured for the entertainment of the
people. Excusing it by saying 'But the acting is very good' is
I stopped watching the never-ending violence years ago. There is no
'proof' that watching violence and murder, hour after hour, day after
day, damages people, but I just can't stand it anymore.

Anyway, nobody needs tv anymore. It has been replaced by the internet.
