That, my friend, is the key. It's the mindlessness of what and *how*
children are allowed to watch unquestioningly, anything they want:
graphic violence and sex, insipid advertisements, etc. and never are
given more interesting options (as you also mentioned, I believe.) TV is
a tool that many are never taught to use correctly. It, in and of itself,
is morally neutral.
