Proof that TV doesn’t harm kids, Butch!

Bozo leadsSlate explains how Likelihood of Confusion did it:

If anything, the data revealed a small positive uptick in test scores for kids who got to watch more television when they were young. For kids living in households in which English was a second language, or with a mother who had less than a high-school education, the study found that TV had a more sizable positive impact on test scores in reading and general knowledge. Evidently, Bozo the Clown was better than we remember.

OK, well, my mother did have a high school education, but English was her second language. Does that count?

Oh, by the way, regarding Bozo — not “was better.” Is!
