Three, count 'em, three studies indicate that your kids won't get any smarter by watching television. The wizards at the Associated Press pull it all together for you in this story: TV May Inhibit Learning. The story supports the surprising statement that, "Too much TV-watching can harm children's ability to learn and even reduce their chances of getting a college degree, three new studies suggest in the latest effort to examine the effects of television on kids." Note that these are NEW studies, and therefore haven't been discredited yet.
