As a younger child I didn't really watch anything to bad. Mostly I was outside or cleaning (big neat freak). In fact I don't remember watching TV much as a young adult at all. So it didn't affect much of my viewing habits now. I guess I have always been drawn to mysteries and adult points of view/situations.
The biggest problem I have heard from people about the TV ratings is that a lot of PG-13 movies can be worse than R movies. The parents that DO trust the ratings have been upset that their children can go to a movie theatre in a trusted manner and coming out seeing more violent/sexual images than some R movies. This didn't surprise me because even some of my friends commented on this issue, and I agreed with them. Not that any of us were complaining, we just thought that it was particularly funny.

In 2008, election really had a lot of people's attention. My friends and family, I could even hear conversations regaurding the election at the grocery store as I was passing by. Many people were swayed one way or the other, and being such a young person I swayed into who I would have voted for. As a child from a lower-middle class family, I was desperate for change to help this economy that had me deciding between supper and a chance to hang with my friends in the next town over. So as being that Bush was a Republican, I announced myself a Democrat....Of course I was going to vote for Obama, if I could have anyways. Now I think to myelf, what was I thinking?
President Roosevelt was by far one of the most praised presidents. He was good looking (for the style of that time) and look smart and presidential. But I want to pose to you this question. Would he have been elected if television was in use at that time? I know a lot of people always think of Abraham Lincoln in this type of question, but he wasn't in a wheelchair.

Overall I think that music is important in one's life, no matter how much you may disagree with that taste, it's important to that person. My mom understood that and hated Eminem, yet every cd I have ever owned by him, she bought me. I will reflect that on my kids, as long as the music is not as annoying as Hannah Montana.
