TV is very effective in

TV is very effective in influencing the subconscious. Have you noticed how sometimes you can tell exactly where people have gotten their information (which particular network or specific pundit) because they tend to repeat the same language and phrases? They may not even realize they are doing it. This is why brief sound bytes and headlines are so effective.

I really noticed this a lot over the past couple of years, as I have deliberately used television and media as a tool for learning a foreign language. After a while I started noticing myself repeating words and complete phrases...and even starting to subconsciously mimic body language and gestures. TV really is an effective propaganda tool if you aren't aware of it, and even sometimes when you are.
