Not just TV, but most books and almost all newspapers for many, many years have not only lied, but they have created an entirely fictional picture of reality. They make you think life is one way, when it is really another.
Those who try to watch TV thinking they can "sort through the lies" are overestimating themselves and underestimating the devil. I try to tell people this but no one listens, and inevitably, they continue watching TV, and this makes them talk a lot of nonsense thinking they know what's up. So we get the arguments about the relative merits of Sarah Palin or Glenn Beck or Obama, media puppets who mean nothing, who are meant as distractions, and should be completely ignored.
Don't tell me that Obama pushed through the health plan and that therefore he is important and we must speak about him. Bush could have pushed through the same health plan, except it has been arranged that Republicans are the "war party" while Democrats are the "social engineering" party, but really both are the same, the war party starting the massacres that reap the funds for the social engineers. Instead of talking about "Obama," just refer to "they," meaning the Bolshevik Jews and their stooge Freemasons. They control America, and that is all you need to know. It doesn't matter what telegenic face du jour they hide behind, nor does it matter what "party" that face belongs to.
The only way to stay sane is to hang on for dear life to the teachings of the Church. But the Church itself has been shattered and mutilated to the point of unrecognizability. So as St. Vincent of Lerins said, we have to cling onto antiquity. Turn off the TV.
