The Evil of Television Recognized Early

As most people reading this blog will know, I wrote a history of Commercial Drive.  In the midst of the research for that I found an editorial in the Highland Echo, Commercial Drive’s local paper, that took a prescient view of television.  They described it as:

… just one more of the influences currently being brought to bear on the American people to render them incapable of independent thought and independent decisions.”

Not much to add to that really.

The date of the editorial?  30th November, 1950.  Sixty-four years ago.
