My question about televisionSubmitted by quiet.meadow on Fri, 05/18/2012 - 23:52
I do appreciate the replies, but I am still deeply concerned about how people view the influence of tv. Negative 8 votes and counting now. People really don't like to question the medium.
From the posts I'm getting, it seems like a lot of you think tv is pretty innocent. There is a great book called Four Arguments for the Elimination of the Television which might be worth a read. So this is where I'm coming from in my question. I also am at -7 votes? I sort of think it's funny, but then again, it makes me sad because I wonder how many people really love and want it more than something non-virtual.
I don't understand how taking over the Republican Party will change America. It seems that the power elite could just as easily blackout the Republican Party and form a new, certified party giving it media attention. It certianly appears that people do whatever the tv tells them. Wouldn't the Republican Party would get just as much publicity, as say, the Green Party? Any thoughts?
