Does it annoy you that apparently, even a show like "Mythbusters" isn't immune from political spin?
Seriously, I've been a HUGE fan of Mythbusters from day one. One thing in particular I've always loved is that it's never had ANY political overtones, one way or the other, now all the sudden Obama's doing guest spots, and half the commercials are Keri, Grant, and Tory hawking the latest greatest "green" crap... ugh, really? Why can't it just stay a fun show where lot's of stuff gets blown up without having to spark any "debate"?
LOL... this is why I can't watch TV any more, since the 08 election, its all political drama, I don't even like the news, conservative or Liberal all have obama,obama, and....obama... yes, it all gets really old.... just go for that Red Hot Chili Pepper's song... "Throw away your Television... time to make this clean decision... master waits for its collision now...its a repeat..."
It annoys me that we have television shows which attempt to insert gays and lesbians into comic situations and attempt to sell the concept by first getting the people to laugh along about it. If we look closely enough, we will see a lot of that type thing in the story lines of various broadcasts. It is not enough for Hollywood and the television industry to just turn out entertainment. There are always those in the industry who have a social axe to grind or who really believe that the perch they are sitting on should be used to ram some social misfit situation down everyone's throat...the series "Miami Ink" comes to mind with all those damn tatooes and body piercings. I don't need the media to tell me what to think or say. Sadly, they get to our kids minds more than ours...that is the true danger of television. WB
There are always people, who "Believe" they can do better, than everybody else ... In fact everyone thinks, he or she, can do better, than what the others are doing.
Thank heavens; most people, do not "do" ... what they think, they can do.
Those who "do" ... out of sheer impulsiveness, or habitual compulsions, are politicians ...
Because, although, they cannot Do, as good as someone is already doing ... they find fault in what the other is doing, thus, compensate for their personal shortcomings.
This compensation for shortcomings, is Diplomacy ... an integral of Politics.

What do you think of politicians using non-news shows to promote their interests?Obama is appearing on the hit show Mythbusters on the Discovey Channel this December to promote science education.
