Values are found on TV

Regarding the Opinion page article "Can Religion Get a Fair Hearing on Prime-Time TV?," March 19: Prime-time TV is full of affirmative values. Consider examples put forth by Bill Cosby and many of the other family shows. These don't preach a particular religious position, but they all stand for family values that are healthy, even when cloaked in comedic situations.

Entertainment does not ignore the positive aspects of life, and if critics see a tendency to trivialize, distort, or caricature them, perhaps they are looking in the wrong direction. L. W. Thomas, Ypsilanti, Mich.
