While sitting on the couch all day is not good for you whether you are playing video games, watching TV, reading a book, or surfing the web, TV is FAR
worse than the internet.
In marketing terms, TV is a "push" medium and the internet is a "pull" medium. In other words, TV "pushes" at you whatever it determines you
should see, you cannot choose what you learn from the shows, you can only choose to view or not view it, and select from a very limited menu. Online,
you must "pull" the content to yourself. You must choose which content you want to see. TV is more like if you ONLY stayed on MSN or AOL at ALL
times, and never looked at ANYTHING else.
In advertising, it is well known that internet advertising is much more effective, because the viewers of your content will qualify themselves by
pulling it out of the huge pool. For example, anyone who visits a website that is all about laundry detergent, is definitely far more likely to buy
some than someone who sees an ad on TV about laundry detergent. If you sell motorcycles, you will do much better contacting people who visited
websites about motorcycles if you want to make sales. Someone visiting a website about motorcycles is far more likely to buy a motorcycle than
someone who sees a Kawasaki ad on TV.
TV is not as good at advertising, but it is a much more effective propaganda and brainwashing device. In the old days they only had newspapers to use
for propaganda purposes. If Goebbels had TV back then he would have loved it. Think about it: You really have NO idea what is happening anywhere
outside of your own small town. If you didn't see it with your own eyes, how do you know it's true? Most people simply accept what they see on TV
as the truth, but the truth is you REALLY have no way of definitely knowing if it is true or not. Back in the day, the only way you could know what
was going on outside your own town was from newspapers, and it took months for the news to travel. This allowed Rothschild to pretty much take over
England with advance knowledge of the victory at Waterloo.
Now, I'm sure all of you have seen enough CGI movies to KNOW that pictures or video no longer prove anything. It is impossible to tell if they are
faked or not. For example, the war in Iraq. Unless you have actually been over there in the fighting, or someone in your family who you know you can
trust to tell the truth, you have no idea what is going on. You just go by what you see on TV. For all you know, it could be completely different.
It could be that there is actually no war at all, and the soldiers are over there just drinking and banging the local girls, and everyone is having a
good time. Or it could be that they already dropped nukes, and the entire place is just a radioactive sheet of glass, and that's why we can't get
at the oil. Or maybe, Iraq is actually where the aliens are, and they are demanding humans as food on a large scale, and the US army is playing along
and feeding the Iraqis to some human devouring aliens. All of these are ridiculous, but you really have no way of knowing if they are true or not,
unless you or someone you know REALLY well has been over there. So I have to assume 99 percent of the people on this board really don't know for
sure what is going on over there. For all you know, any "soldiers" on TV that come back from there were hypnotized, drugged, and had false memories
implanted in their heads, or are simply TV actors, and the real story is something totally different.
Now, something like Youtube is a whole new ball game. If you see a single video on youtube about something, there is a good chance it is total bunk.
However, if you see fifty different videos shot by different people of the same event at different angles, then you know it probably is true. I would
go so far as to say three independent views of the same thing is pretty good evidence. Seeing it on CNN, not so believable. This is why all
journalists are absolutely BANNED from Iraq. Only a very few "embedded" journalists are allowed. Embedded means paid mouthpiece who reports what
he is told to. Think of the Norway Spiral event. Hundreds of different people captured that on video from as many different locations, so I can
fairly safely say that it definitely happened. WTC attacks? Well, somehow only major media networks seem to have any footage, and we know for sure
that they are all in bed together. And the Pentagon? Well, they seem to have seized all independent footage of THAT little event. So.......
