Channel One Gets Brutal

Channel One News, your “Dead Body” station.

The first week of Channel One News has got to have teachers very concerned.

The graphic images being presented to pre-teens are appalling, even by Channel One’s standards.

Dead bodies are everywhere and middle school students are getting the same gory feed that the high school students are receiving. On Thursday, August 18, students began their day with more murder and blood. This time it is in the Middle East.

It’s not enough to show a sheet covering dead bodies. Channel One made the conscience decision to include this gruesome clip that shows a murder victim lying in a pool of blood.

It is difficult for parents to understand the decision making at Channel One. “If it bleeds, it leads” appears to be their motto.
