Predictive Programming

Interesting topic for me, Tom Secker does have some good things to say in regards to how the different medias often tell the news before it happens (not just with 9/11). About 30 minutes in they talk about something that I've been concerned about; that movies and television series often steer the viewer to root for the bad guy (as in "Prison Break" for an example), or make the hero of the story an amoral sociopath whose evil deeds of murder and mayhem have a justifiable reason behind them which justify the means of his otherwise unacceptable behavior.

Please be as gracious as you would like others to be to you. Thank you :)


Please try to keep your comments on the topic of the post you are commenting on.

If there is a link to an article or podcast, or if there is an embedded video please view these before airing your views on the posting. If you clearly did not watch video/read link I may choose to remove your comment or leave your comment and then not respond to it ...particularly if you have a question that is already answered on link or video.

Opposing viewpoints are of course allowed here, however, I will limit such discussions to two or at most three further comments on one topic, so do try to get all your criticisms in while keeping that in mind, and don't take it personal....I just don't want to be bogged down with a constant barrage of replies that go on and on like a dog chasing it's tail in circles.
