"Every day and night, hard-working people come home
from their jobs and turn on their TV sets. Never before
have they had so many channels to choose from, yet
never before have their choices been so limited....
Americans want a channel that is dedicated to asking
the hard questions about the issues affecting their

-- George C. Stoney, Professor of Film/TV,
