as seen on tv

Here's the main reason you should never believe anything you see on television.

The Citizens United decision implies among other things that our political system now legally belongs to the highest bidders. Since private television companies, who use public airwaves to make their living, will bag about $3 billion selling time for campaign ads this political season -- a record amount -- they have a financial interest in downplaying the impact of the Supreme Court decision.

Television isn't just anti-intellectual any more, but has become anti-democratic as well.
