TV Hijackers

Friday, December 28, 2012


On a Sunday evening in the late 1980s, two or more unknown men hijacked the signal for two Chicago area TV stations. They broadcast a spooky, subversive, disturbing message — twice. Brooke talks to Bohus Blahut, a Chicago broadcaster, who saw the broadcast and was unable to forget it.

I pay $65/mo for high-speed cable internet, but $0/mo for broadcast television.
I download 99% of my content for "free" through P2P networks, and I do not pay subscriptions or stream through any content distribution services. *sorry, hulu, netflix, zune, itunes.

P2P Networks have better content; rarities/obscurities, full collections, no commercial interruptions, and higher-definition than the mainstream media outlets.

The only thing that I "pay" for is Public Broadcasting.
I am a proud contributor to my NPR member station.
This is because the content is quality and substantive.

No garbage, ever.
