Todays Thought, Turn off the TV

Thought for Today
“Local TV news across the country [is] saturated with mayhem and fluff at the expense of the broader range of issues important to our communities. TV news has become an emotional collection of the terrifying and the titillating, chosen to generate what marketing experts call ‘arousal.’ Arousal prepares viewers for TV news’ abundant advertising but it does not inform citizens. Rather, it breeds cynicism, discourages civic participation, and promotes fearful withdrawal and passivity.”
