Asleep At the Wheel - Look who's sleeping Now!

A Special Report just came out......discussing the "Media Assult on American Values" conducted by the Culture and Media Institute. Here's another fine example of the Duh-huh award runner-ups. The study starts out with "Are the media influencing Americans to duck their responsibilities for their own decisions and behavior?"

Well, let's see......Isn't this what we parents have been saying for at least the last 10-15 years? Ten-15 years!! This study divides the viewers into heavy and light TV watchers and asks them questions like:

Is Abortion wrong?
Is Sex outside of marriage wrong...always?
Are you opposed to same-sex marriage?
Do you attend Church regularily?

The light viewers won out on all accounts, they are against abortion, sex outside of marriage, and same-sex marriage. They attend Church regularily. Over half of the heavy TV viewers said they rarely or never attended Church. The study was much more involved than this, but really, why now? Hasn't this been a problem for awhile?

I'm pleased I don't have a tv.

I am somewhat intrigued by the report and will pop over to view.

Thank you for your kind suggestions and also for your prayers for Madeleine.

Blessings always.
