Television (edit|talk|history|protect|delete|links|watch|logs) – (View log)


  1. well, I saykeep, but I mean rewrite from scratch - an article about television, its political abuse and social effects would do nicely. And we should have that dog that could say "sausages." SophieWilderModerator 21:38, 3 June 2014 (UTC)
    That's what I meant by "delete without prejudice". You volunteering to fix? - David Gerard (talk) 21:04, 4 June 2014 (UTC)


  1. The article is not at all serious or informative. While I can see some mission potential (TV woo, usage in media), I don't think that this is really majorly significant, and it's all pretty much covered elsewhere. However, I think it would also be fine to fun-space it if that's what flies. DØØM MĖSSIÅH …Sate the Suicide ChoirDolan.png 10:41, 3 June 2014 (UTC)
  2. Junk article. Why did it stay in mainspace this long? WeaseloidWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 11:19, 3 June 2014 (UTC)
  3. It's not 2007 any more. Delete without prejudice - David Gerard (talk) 14:50, 3 June 2014 (UTC)
  4. Another from the "bad Wikipedia article" pile (it's a big pile). Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 02:20, 9 June 2014 (UTC)


  1. Could be a hub article directing towards more on-mission articles like Fox News. --|₹Λ¥$€₦₦ Red rose 02.svg So you see, we have to kill animals, or else they'll die. 15:10, 3 June 2014 (UTC)
  2. I'm old enough to remember some of the eccentric 1960s - early 1980s debates about television before the ubiquity of cable and the rise of the Internet. The "great wasteland", "violence on TV", and many other moral panics or attempted moral panics. Television was supposed to be turning children into thugs, turning brains into jello, and enforcing a limited corporate world view. Do we have Marshall McLuhan or Neil Postman? There's a fair amount of older woo about TV and its alleged social impacts and evils that might be missional. - Smerdis of Tlön (talk) 18:49, 7 June 2014 (UTC)
