Dan Flynn over at his blog Flynn Files had a great post on how he had to toss his TV to gain some normalcy in his life.
It’s my hope (and it looks this way) that the internet can replace the 5 second sound-bite shows like Hardball for something with a little more depth. Dan Flynn, in his next post found links to William F. Buckley’s Firing Line here .
In addition to the internet reviving great shows it is creating new avenues in which a real dialogue and exchange of ideas can take place. Maybe my hope for a show that Dan Flynn is talking about will never air on one of the hundreds of cable tv channels (except C-SPAN)…but the internet is making it. This could be the reason that some of the younger generations seem to opt for live streaming services through the internet instead of paying for cable service because the selection of online entertainment in the modern age is only increasing and any series or film can be on-demand, there are obviously those that find cable TV to be more advantageous for their reasons, it’s probably a preference thing that correlates somewhat with age brackets, there is more information and stats regarding the life of cable TV using the likes of these cable tv statistics here or other sources you’re able to find online.
Check out BloggingHeads.tv and this exchange between Jonathan Chait of TNR and Jonah Goldberg of NR. I really enjoy Jonah despite my often disagreements with him, he is witty and often acknowledges the different camps among the conservative movement (instead of arguing his way is the way of the right)
Is this Jonah admitting that Chait got the best of him on the war on the BlogginHeads.tv?
