Before video games became the techno-panic of the day, nannying Republicans and Democrats insisted that TV turned kids' brains to mush and should be strictly regulated. But Reason has long celebrated the boob tube's liberating, transformative power—and defended every American's right to watch whatever he or she wants. Robby Soave takes a look at some of the best of Reason's TV coverage, from scrutinizing FEC regulation of satellite television in 1984 to explaining why Lost espouses a libertarian worldview and all kids should be forced to watch South Park.
