A Brief History of The “History” Channel
Posted by mattusmaximus on April 3, 2012
I have long lamented the slow, downward spiral into an abyss of stupidity taken by networks such as The “History” Channel in recent years. It started when a student of mine expressed his shock at seeing a show about “ancient aliens” building the pyramids on THC; fortunately my student knew it was a steaming pile of woo. As a way of giving you some idea of how THC has gone all the way down the rabbit hole of pseudoscience and complete nonsense in its quest for ratings, I would like to pass along to you this humorous graphic I stole from my skeptical colleague Kylie Sturgess. It sums the whole thing up nicely… 🙂
