So, do you think that tv is a prop of the powers that be to dumb the masses, or a teaching tool that has gone wrong.
Or its working just fine?

FissionSurplus, wanted to quote for you a post I had made in another thread in another forum a few months back:

So what is the answer? How do we take our world back? Do we rise up and attempt to take it by force? Do we wait for a Saviour to come, in the form of a god or alien species? Do we just sit and wait, knowing that all things balance out in time?
In my opinion, taking away Commercial Advertising could be an option, solely based on your statement (which by the way I deem as 100% true):
Over the years people have begun to awaken to the fact that the ones who run our planet, from elected servant to vicious tyrant, have been leading us further along the path to total servitude. Whether they know it or not, whether you know it or not, we are all being played. Pieces in a game to gain total control of our planet.
Seems that ever since the advent of advertisements in written, radio and TV ads we have been "coerced" into what to do, say, how to think, what to wear, what to eat etc...the list goes on and on. The advertisement industry has several billions of dollars put into it every year...for example:
In 2010, Internet advertising alone was over $26 billion (that is $ 26,000,000,000).1 The same year, television advertising was over $ 50 billion (Ad Age). These figures do not include magazines, newspapers, billboards, product placement, pre-movie commercials, and branding & marketing expenses.
How much money does the advertising industry spend each year?
Take away the ads, and you take away to ability to compel the peoples into doing what you want...
Is this a viable answer? Not at all! Take away the "player's" hands, he will have nothing to move his pieces with. The advertisement industry is, and always has been/will be the thumbs and pinky fingers of those hands...(TPTB). Take them away suddenly and without warning, you can still learn to move your pieces, but perhaps not with as much accuracy and//or speed at first.
TPTB would never even think of allowing this to happen! Even if the world was struck by the biggest X-Flare/Niburu/flood ever, eventually advertising would come back, in full force!
To many questions and not enough alcohol in the world to quell the rage I feel at having my children's future dictated by a group I have no support for or by. So ATS what think you?
Similarly, in 1978, there was less than one television receiver per 100 people, and fewer than ten million Chinese had access to a television set (in 2003 there were about 35 TVs for every 100 people, and roughly a billion Chinese had access to television); expansion and modernization of the broadcasting systems continued throughout the late-1970s and early 1980s.
