I still like most of these shows (even though I don’t have cable, I’ve seen them all), but this video on the “transformation” of The History Channel is funny and spot on. There is no history left on The History Channel. No offense to Dan Whitney a/k/a “Larry the Cable Guy,” who is a reader and friend of this site and who is very smart (and expounded for hours on various news topics during several hours of hanging out with him and his family on the Git’R’Done Tour Bus). I like his show a lot and–full disclosure–gave him some ideas for the show before it began taping. However, the programming on The History Channel is Americana, not American History.
