Oxymoron spotted

Ever notice the symbol "E/I" in the top left corner of certain TV programs? This is to indicate that programming directed at kids supposedly meets FCC requirements that the material is educational and/or instructional.

I was channel surfing yesterday and noticed the "E/I" displayed on one of the religion channels. That a station feeding on ignorance and superstition is allowed to proclaim their bullshit is anywhere near education is beyond ironic.

Of course with the American Taliban in power, I guess we shouldn't be surprised.

At our house when you change the channel to the religious channel it says "JF" up in the corner. The young man of the house programmed that in. It always makes me smile.
