In an experiment in 1969, Herbert Krugman monitored a person through many trials and found that in less than one minute of television viewing, the person's brainwaves switched from Beta waves– brainwaves associated with active, logical thought– to primarily Alpha waves. When the subject stopped watching television and began reading a magazine, the brainwaves reverted to Beta waves.
Maybe switch this dull rubbish off and read a book!
Seems like tv rapidly goes from this device that can inform you about what is going on in the world, to something people use to lobotomize themselves with reality tv shows and celebrity scandals.

I see people that brag about not having a TV, not giving in to the propaganda, but it's not as simple as that. "The message" is every where you look. Billboards, magazines, all advertising, you just have to filter it out. Throwing your TV away is not the answer, having a mind that rejects the BS is.
