Letter: TV guide
Domestic violence, child abuse, drug use and other violence, I believe, is due to the TV programs that everybody, children as well as adults, watches. Most of these programs on most of the TV channels promote violence and immoral actions.
There are some channels that air good moral and family-oriented programs which are not listed on any TV guides. For instance, the ABC family movie, the inspiration channels air good, wholesome family programs. The Inspiration Channel, which in Shelburne Falls airs on cable channel 234, airs such programs as “The Waltons,” “Little House on the Prairie,” “Bonanza,” “Big Valley” and movies suitable for all viewers.
You would never know that these programs exist because these channels are not listed in the local TV guide. I am asking the editors of this liberal Recorder to list the programs on these channels. I am asking those of you who value excellent family entertainment to ask the editors of The Recorder to add these channels to the local TV guide.
