I have heard the following story on Zenith TVs ever since I've been into old TVs. Anybody know if its true, or just a good story ?!? Supposedly, Cdr McDonald was not gonna get into TV, as he thought it was a passing fad. But, when NOBODY was gaining on sales of TVs, he took another look at things, & decided to jump in. But, he told his engineers he wanted a ZENITH tV. one that was built to Zenith levels of quality, & also used as few of the RCA patents as possible. THIS could be why an early Zenith TV is often VERY hard to kill, & why if given half a chance, they still give excellent service. Truth or BS ?!?
