"Who Killed Captain Video?"
Fun Fact! Once upon a time WRGB Schenectady's Channel 6 was affiliated with the DuMont Network (and with CBS, NBC and ABC )...
I found a the Captain Video article a fascinating read about the demise of the American TV pioneer and as you read it (you'll have to "turn the pages" manually) you'll understand how government control was able to produce the first generation of sheeple.
(They did it to CBS as well... it's all about money, you know!)
