Michael Medved: Excessive TV Viewing Leads to Liberal Attitudes?

Michael Medved, author, film critic, and talk-radio host, argues in one of his latest columns--"Why TV Addiction Links to Liberalism"--that excessive TV viewing may lead some people to embrace "distinctly liberal attitudes on a range of crucial issues, placing them well to the left" of people with lighter TV viewing habits. Medved bases his views on the new study by the MRC's Culture and Media Institute, entitled The Media Assault on American Values.

"The isolation associated with hours and hours in front of the tube leads to liberal values and viewpoints," says Medved.
