Ch 23.1 KOKI in Tulsa is a FOX affiliate. It is showing Thank You for Smoking on Mon. 1-2-2012 at 3:00 a.m. One way tobacco companies could get their product on TV was through sporting events like NASCAR which airs on FOX. Thank You for Smoking
is a movie based on the book by conservative William F Buckley’s kid that skewers the tobacco industry. NASCAR dropped a tobacco companies sponsorship of their championship trophy once they were big enough to get along without their help. Radiation causes cancer so won’t be long until they drop their current sponsor.
Before the Occupy Wall Street movement there was the long hair. Appearing in NFL games, players for a few past years have been growing their hair out past their helmets even though it is very disadvantageous. Long hair can be pulled in the pile or can be grabbed to make a tackle. But the statement prevails much like in the movie Hair which airs on Sun. 1-8-2012 at 1:30 p.m. on ch 19.2 KOTVDT3. Hair is about the protests of the 1960’s specifically (spoiler alert) the culture clash of a soldier with his cropped hair meeting some long haired hippies. The soldier falls in love with one of them so his long haired new friend changes places with him so the soldier can sneak off base to see her. However the soldier’s unit is deployed and the hippie ends up in Vietnam. The 1960’s counterculture didn’t bring about America’s ills. Just watch the TV series Naked City which airs on Monday through Friday at 3:00 p.m. on ch 8.3 KTULDT3 and 7:00 p.m. on weekends. Naked City was before the counterculture and has depictions of a soldier having PTSD shooting up a hotel, people throwing bricks down on policemen’s heads, gangs of boys thrill killing, serial killers, and corrupt police. There were two types of young people in the 1960’s. One were the clean cut personified by those who worked as engineers at NASA. The other were the long haired hippies. They reached their heights in the summer of 1969 with the moon landing and Woodstock. Both were betrayed. NASA never fulfilled the promise of moon bases and manned planetary exploration and the Vietnam War lasted 5 long years after Woodstock.
Speaking of betrayal, the American people didn’t want to even see a movie depicting the aftermath on US soldiers of the Iraq War. Home of the Brave airs on Sat. 1-7-2012 at 12:00 p.m. on ch 44.1 KTPX and then is reran on Sun. 1-8-2012 at 7:00 p.m. and Mon. 1-9-2012 at 1:00 p.m.
