DUH!

Filed at 6:24 am under by dcobranchi

This editorial from the Wilmington News-Journal wins the “No Kidding” award for obviousness. In describing video products that supposedly produce smarter babies the paper opines:

Parents could do a lot worse than expose their infants to classical music, foreign languages and pleasing pictures. But they should not be drawn into the sales hype that promises great things, and they certainly should not abandon their babes to the tube as a substitute for the personal attention that makes all babies thrive.

Just because programming is sold for infants does not make television a better baby-sitter than if the infant is left to be entertained by MTV or soap operas.

Whodathunkit?
