    Luckily, she's a Democrat, so we'll be spared the usual caterwauling about the "eeeevil Liberul Meeedja."

    MSNBC isn't a news production. It is acting, an entertainment production. So it was appropriate for them to do so.

    Nah, thanks, ignorance is bliss.

    I grew up without TV and I was 30 years old before I saw a color TV set when I moved from Korea to Las Vegas. So, I never picked up the habit. I don't criticize TV watching, I've even thought about getting one once I sell my bookcases and get some wall space. Now that they are wireless, they won't offend my sense of esthetics and if I get one, I'll get a really big one.

    This is the wall I hope to use. Books are obsolete now that I have a Kindle but they are hard to get rid of. But by 2015 I hope to try this project out.

    sell your book case? Nooo..don't do that. Use them to put little planters with those plants that have those long, sharp pointed leaves.

    I have a "black thumb" and even plastic flowers wilt if I come near them. Blessed are the pot sellers, illusion dwellers.

    Plus, if I want to own a TV before I die, that's the only large wall I have. I have $6K invested in those bookcases and thousands more in books. But the time has come the walrus said.

    Then it appears you can place a TV between them. So...just keep them.

    I have no idea what to say about this beside the stander anti-news rage. So I will ask what was your reaction to this?
    Above all, TV is a business. That business makes money from ratings. Their research shows people are more likely to be glued to their TVs if they break away and offer the latest from Justin Beiber's arrest than talking with a Congresswoman. Its not just MSNBC. FOX News likes live police chases a whole lot. I think I do too.
    Having opinions all over the map is a good sign of a person capable of autonomous thinking. Felix -2011

    I tried to measure it out if I removed "tall guy" the cabinet but there isn't enough room for a 70" TV and I'm low vision so I need a big TV. I've had them for a decade and I'm ready to let them go if I can find a buyer. I have them on Craig's and Ebay but so far I just sold $200 worth of books.

    I have them listed for $2K which is 1/3 of the original cost. They are no longer in production. But do people still read?

    I have a lot of signed books, obscure books and a 1701 Gutenberg Bible that I'll probably throw in on the deal. I really should list them but 700 books is just too much work.
