Russell Baker: Television’s basic American education


“By the age of six the average child will have completed the basic American education. … From television, the child will have learned how to pick a lock, commit a fairly elaborate bank holdup, prevent wetness all day long, get the laundry twice as white, and kill people with a variety of sophisticated armaments.”

Russell Baker, columnist and author (b. 14 Aug 1925) .
