Hope you find it useful.
Television has been described as the "dominate culture form" in America and it is how our nation gains a sense of itself.
Because America has not yet come to terms with the "race issue,"
the presence and absence of Black People on TV reflects the hint of the
power imbalance in the society.
Did you know that television is addictive?
- The more you watch the more you need to watch.
Did you know that television is Not Harmless?
The steady stream of radiation, light and sound coming from the set is absorbed into your body like a sponge.
Once it gets inside your head, the words, figures and sounds change your thoughts and influence your behavior.
They don't call the shows Programs for nothing.
If you're concerned with drugs, crime, and poor role models - you
need to be concerned also about the programs your children watch.
Furthermore and maybe even more important, is the need to be
concerned about what you watch, because your children are watching you.
It's you who's their 1st programmer, but who programmed you?!
