did you know that they get alot of public political opinions based on what tv shows americans liked best?

for example, tv shows that are full of the "good guys" completely ignoring the constitution or any civil rights in order to get "the bad guys" are watched to see the public's reaction. if people like this type of "action movie" it indicates a willingness of the public to fore go certain rights we have. additionally, while showing all that underground spying etc etc, it makes americans accept things like bush's spying with the NSA more acceptable with americans.

there's a big psychological reason why hollywood makes certain movies or series.

just many of the "new" programs that have come out recently, especially those that deal with a fantasy team who combats terrorists.

karl rove and company made a remark recently about how americans must want the government to embark on a more agressive spying role simply because these shows were so popular.

if i could find that dman link where i read it i'd post it, but for the life of me, i can't find it now.
