The Medium Is the Message, Part 2

Thanks LRC readers for the terrific response to my inquiry concerning what TV shows may have influenced your early formation of political attitudes and beliefs. What an eclectic selection of programs — Rocky and Bullwinkle, The Dukes of Hazard, Zorro, Yogi Bear, F Troop, Rumpole of the Bailey, The Wire, Kung Fu, Lost in Space, Breaking Bad, The Outer Limits, and Yes, Prime Minister. The above King Midas Fractured Fairy Tale is from The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show. Several readers pointed out that Jim West and Artemus Gordon were federal agents who worked directly under U. S. Grant in The Wild, Wild West series — placing them in another category.
