Using the word “History” in their title, one would assume the History Channel broadcasts exclusively historical, well-documented programs and footage.
So, when I see a show like “Ancient Aliens” consistently running on this network, it really does make me wonder. The Comedy Network might consider broadcasting such material, mainly because the episodes I’ve seen have been pretty laughable, but the History Channel?
The content is no better than “Ghost Hunters” on the SyFy schedule, and there again, we have a more appropriate outlet…
But, apart from “The DaVinci Code,” since when did no evidence constitute evidence?
And, with liberally sprinkled words and phrases like “maybe,” and “could have been,” exactly when did no basis become a foundation for purportedly “historical” programing?
Hysterical assertion on TV? Sure.
