We can simply turn off trashy television

Published: Wednesday, January 16, 2013 at 03:49 PM.

But I am worried about where we’re going as a people given the popularity of these shows, our willingness to defend them as having value, and the wasteful time spent watching them. That they "pass the morality test" with so many and that those that speak out against them — like Jones — are fodder for unrestrained bias is also problematic.

Angus T. Jones is on contract to complete his series of "Two and a Half Men." Other than speaking out, he’s stuck with wallowing in his self-described filth. The rest of us though? We can turn "Two and a Half Men" and shows like them off.

And become Scot-free of trash TV.
