The problem of Professor X being alive isn’t resolved by the future timeline being erased. The contradiction is that he died in The Last Stand — but is alive in the future we see at the beginning of DOFP. THAT’S the Xavier who shouldn’t exist. It makes sense that everything has changed going forward from the END of the movie; it doesn’t make sense that Xavier would still exist in the original timeline after having died in X3. As they say in Doctor Who, “timey-wimey”!!
Response to "X-Men: Days Of Future Past" May Not Please Diehard Fans, But It’s An Explosive Spectacle:
“This storyline ran at the height of 1980s Reagan-Thatcherism, the Cold War, and the Star Wars weapon systems, amid a vastly materialistic society in which normalcy seemed to be the ultimate prize to be attained.” Not precisely. X-Men #141 was released in January 1981. Reagan hadn’t even been sworn in yet (or, at most, maybe was president for a few days). The Star Wars weapons system was years away — and the whole ’80s materialism vibe was also down the road. If anything, Claremont and Byrne may have drawn inspiration from the recession/oil-shock/hostage crisis of the waning Carter years for the overall bleakness of the original story.

No.3is ridiculous. Even if you discount Tivo which came along in 2006, the VCR had been in use for decades — meaning people could quite easily “skip commercials.”
