Tv Politics

May 25, 1986

By saying "The Day After" is "the most powerful antiwar program ever aired" on television, Garrett gives us an unintentional insight into how far even the so-called liberal members of the television community have strayed from an understanding of the reality of television programming.

The salient points of "The Day After" as I saw them were:

1--You can survive a nuclear explosion by hiding underneath the dashboard of a car.

2--Even after your city is destroyed, you will be able to seek medical care in an undamaged, fully stocked and supplied hospital; and doctors like JoBeth Williams and Jason Robards will still be able to speak to one another in hushed, oh-so-superior, soap-opera-doctor tones while ignoring the patients lining the halls.
