This is a great video!
Wow! This is so neat. This video showing how a cathode ray tube is made for TVs. I wish I had seen this video as a child. Would have made me wonder less about the magic of television!
Did you know that the labeling of red and blue states in relation to political divisions is a relatively new technique? It started off originally in 1972 just around the time colored televisions became the major news source for American families, but at the time, the colors we closely associate with each major political party were reversed -- red for democrats and blue for republicans.
According to this Vox video, it wasn't really until the 2000 election that the term "red and blue states" became used in everyday political reporting. So interesting to see how that color shift happened so quickly and almost without any logical reason.
The transformation of the TV show's "cold open".
