American television has become psychopathic & xenophobic

American television has become so disturbed & obsessed with the macabre, the sadistic, & psychopathic that it’s impossible to watch. I love whodunnit detective stories but the crimes portrayed are now grotesque & graphically portrayed. There really wasn’t room for a Hannibal Lecter knock-off but they made a series anyway. The rest are all glorifications of militarism, the CIA & FBI, & are up to their eyeballs in Islamophobia & evil terrorists with Arab names.

I may have to stop eating for three weeks to afford cable just so there’s something to watch at night. And please don’t tell me to dump the TV. Some of us actually like watching. Without apologies.
