No decent parent would let their child be alone with Michael Jackson, writes Rabbi Dov Fischer. But many let their kids be corrupted by TV, radio or video games. This is a guy who censors The Simpsons. But I think he has a point, especially about media that children absorb outside a parent’s presence. My daughter used to watch Beverly Hills 90210 (banned in the Fischer home). I’d sit in the kitchen reading the paper. When I heard something especially stupid — ours is not a sound-proofed dwelling — I’d go to the living room and rant about it.
