TV could make people short-minded, bad tempered, thick skinned, and idiotic. Watch gossip programs, then you'll experience one of them at least.
Not only TV Uncle B if that's what you want to express. :P Don't you think even the people around us are capable of making us appear in this way? :roll: :mrgreen:
TV is the most effective media to brainwash people. The best tool to make people idiotic!

What do you think?
I know for some it's helpful but for many it's not... it's ruining lives... some people benefit from it but not all...

some TV shows are obviously disagreeable. there is even a host who gave as a joke some discriminating opinion to only one gender always. Sometimes the personal interest of the host cannot be hidden. :roll: I think to some people it's alright but they should know it's not for everybody.

But it is you who choose what to watch and how much time. I don't watch Television but can say that it isn't something evil. Like all media sources, it can be interpreted different. The responsibility lies on the individual.
