Televisions impact on society
How many would believe the common television is a major building block of our
our present time.
The television reached labratory perfection in the 1930’s, but it did not reach the
market until 1945, just after WWII. The introduction of television made an enormous
impact, some even claimed it was ” The Birth of the Information Age.”. It opened the doors
every individual in the U.S., bringing ground-breaking news and events to every television
across the nation simutaneously. The enertainment industry would take off and soar to
uncomparable heights. Enertainment would be revoulutionized through huge strides, with
working and ever so changing America into a mindless society completely devoid to the
sense of right and wrong.
Soon after the television made its way in to the homes of America, things began to

television, viewers are exposed to the ideas and influences proposed and applied by the
endless commercials, movies, and shows, and when ended, leaving thier mind’s
imagination shocked and wondering the possibilities. The influences give all sorts of ideas
and plots, bringing to light new problems and inefficiencies, such as eating to much,
envying the celebrated, coveting merchandise, lusting after images, angry at the news and

The television took America from an organized and uniform nationwide wavelength, and
some and believable to most. To share just a few should make a strong point. For instance, the percentage
of U.S. household with at least one T.V. is 98%, the percent of children between 2-5 with T.V.’s in thier
room are 25%, and the most shocking is the percentage of 4-6 year olds who, when asked to choose
children have thier own T.V.’s at the ages of 2-5 in the first place. Children who never learn to understand

Chicago and an internationally known authority in hemispheric development, ” When children commit
time looking at TV, they’re not spending time reading. When a child reads a novel, he has to self-create
whole scenarios, he has to create images of who these people are, what their emotions are, what their
created scenarios are important, and television leaves no room for that creative process…..Brains are
excercise brains, they wither.” It’s both astonishing and painful that TV has such an effect on our lives.
Americas’ youth should be shameful to America itself. Children should be taught by educated graduates of
universities rather than the corrupting television filled with scandals, drugs, violence, sex, and unguided
themes and ideas. Although those issues can be learned in school, they are given in a much better light
and have reason, as well as clearly stating the consequences of those actions.
imagine how much TV an individual would, on average, one would watch in a lifetime if every year
he/she watches 1,500 hours a year. That is alot of TV! So instead of zoning out into a world of
America. Expand your mind rather than fill it with trash that will never contribute to bettering humanity
as a whole only diminish it. Even if you don’t win a nobel prize or some prestigious award, you yourself
