Bill Moyers & “Educational Quagmire”


Check out this sentence from an article about “the dark side of TiVo“:

Fanatical TiVo users complain that their TiVo quickly fills up with shows they can’t bear to delete, from self-improving educational fare like “NOW with Bill Moyers” and “Chimps: So Like Us,” to less cerebral programs such as “Sex and the City.”

So there you have it: watching the unwatchable Bill Moyers is now officially educational AND self-improving (and you can’t bear to delete it!). The “educational quagmire” is far, far worse than I thought.
