    I've often wondered what India made of all those Far Side cartoons.

    … and don’t forget the concluding paragraphs of the article:

    “Employees have recently complained of increasing government intervention in TRT's broadcasting policy, including also the appointment of ruling party cronies to key posts at the institution, which runs several television and radio channels.

    “Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's Justice and Development Party, the offshoot of a now-banned Islamist movement, is under fire for seeking to raise the profile of Islam in mainly Muslim but strictly secular Turkey.”

    Just in case those not familiar with the situation get the wrong idea.

    This could open the floodgates. Overeaters Anonymous getting the show banned for the negative stereotype of the condition promoted by Pooh. An ADDH pressure group getting the show banned because of the bad influence of Tigger (a case for Ritalin if ever I saw one). Depressives getting the show banned because of the negative influence of Eeyore, etc, etc.

    What are they going to show instead of Pooh? Endless repeats of Midnight Express? [​IMG]

    Ah, no it doesn't any night I can turn on anything I want, as I have my whole life and will continue to do so.
