I think Whitehurst was thinking of 'reality TV' or sitcoms like 'Friends', rather than 'The Discovery Channel', 'National Geographic channel', or 'History Channel'. It does seem to be a gross generalization to simply blame falling literacy rates on TV and internet.

On the other hand, if people do not read, they will not improve ready comprehension.
