SOUND OFF, Aug. 25

Sound Off highlights anonymous, brief takes on the news offered via telephone by Daily News readers.

Kudos to Gillian Pollock’s article on the idiot box. I totally agree and now I have to pay megabucks so I can just watch our local station’s news. I don’t need or want 100 channels plus just so I can find out what’s going on in my neck of the woods.

I agree and disagree with Ms. Pollock’s Sunday column. I agree there’s way too many reruns of old network shows on cable TV. Where I disagree is censorship. I believe the networks, the cable networks should be able to show whatever they want to and let the market choose what stays on the air and what doesn’t.
