safe environment

I just want to point out something: just because I have a TV and let my children watch it doesn't mean that my house is not a safe environment. Knowing how to filter the information, remembering the difference between show and reality is very important. Our children G-d please will grow up, they should know how to deal with the real world. TV doesn't do it, we make our choices.

Put the Blame Where It Belongs

While I agree with Rabbi Salomon's conclusion, I would like to point out that the issue isn't really TV, but our choices. After all, one can also choose to read books with violent or pornographic content and be influenced by them. So it point is not having the TV but chosing what to watch; not having Internet access but deciding what to access - and so on with almost everything we chose to experience. TV, Internet, books - all of these are just tools. It is up to us to use them wisely.

Re Salomon says: 24 & the FBI

Just thought Rabbi Salomon might like to know that he's not the only one without TV. I actually have one, but it is not hooked up to an antenna or cable. The only thing I use it for is to watch DVD, and VCR teachings on the Bible. Good for you. Sincerely, Kathy Mallette

agreement on media bombardment and influence

The media bombardment....I have seen it likened to the Great Flood of Noah's time. Either you have personal boundaries for the flood of media that's always around us, or you get washed away. Don't take anything for truth until you have also "packed for the voyage" an opinion from both sides.

Television influence is primarily a hughe distraction.

Thank you! You stated my first thoughts when I heard this report on "24". My second thought; they are looking for someone else to blame! Hollywood is the great "ususal suspect" in each regime who hides their deeds in the darkness. For the rest of us, it is suppose to be just entertainment...or is it...just propaganda?
