The History Channel Complaint - The History Channel
The History Channel is incomplete, one-sided and extremely superficial concerning the historical and faith-based events and facts it presents.
A politically correct entity, The History Channel panders to the most base fears of humans (that of extinction) by repeatedly programming shows based upon academically shaky conjecture (the Mayan calendar and "doomsday"). It fills-in the gaps with pop Sociology (Pawn Stars, Ax Men, Ice Road Truckers) and rounds-out the programming with revisionist and utterly bogus and romanticized accounts of American History (the causes of the War Between the States, the conflicts of American Westward Expansion and the War of 1812).
In is "historical" presentation of faith-based historical paradigms, The History Channel resorts to the use of "experts" such as Benny Hinn.
I teach History at the university level and frequently remind my students that The History Channel is to History as People Magazine is to fine literature.
