Stop Spreading False Information
The History Channel used to be just that -- a show about history. Unfortunately, it has recently moved toward programming that has absolutely nothing to do with history. Programming such as Ice Road Truckers, Axe Men, Top Shot, and Swamp people have nothing to do with any historical events. But worst of all, the few shows that are about history are blatantly false and spread sensationalist misinformation in an effort to generate ratings. Ancient Aliens and America Unearthed are especially problematic. They rely on easily-debunked conspiracy theories which make wild, unsubstantiated claims that go against everything that has been written in the fields of Archaeology and History. Unfortunately, people who are not knowledgeable in these fields cannot be expected to recognize misinformation when they see it, and are left with the impression that legitimate fields of study are full of conspiracies, corruption, and cover-ups, and are taught completely bogus information that has nothing to do with actual history.
