He is very right.

Yes, because it's a royal pain to remove the other sideband at high
frequency. Broadcast TV uses very elaborate schemes to do this.

The carrier isn't there at all. In fact, it is there, but this is
deliberate. A 10% RF power corresponds to the sync tips and this is there
to allow the sound intercarrier demodulation to function during sync tips.

No. A SSB TV receiver will receive a DSB transmission fine. The other way
around it won't work. The video game/VCR modulators are DSB for the
reasons explained above.
