and the paper and radio media is the same way if not worse before the TV. The. Overwleming amount of information allows us to better cross examine the information given to us. Instead of taking someones word for it our youth can Google for answers and determine truth themselves. However, one must learn how to learn correctly or be overwelmed by false information.Our children are being raised by the morally and intellectually bankrupt mass media.

You think that ignorance and stupidty was less prevalent before the information age? You can only lead a horse to water...My eighteen year old brother's girlfriend was watching The Real World on MTV, and I was floored by the self-centeredness and stupidity that these people exhibited. It was just staggering...
The problem has never been the books, the radio, TV, internet or drugs. These are merely scapegoats for failures of the parents and guardians.
