Television is a form of media that has
great ability to INFLUENCE and persuade the
viewing public. The talking
box in our living room has assumed the role it plays today as a result
of the WEAKNESS of society. This may seem
like a negative view but a society’s strength is based on the
relationships between people, and NOWADAYS
so much time is spent away from others and together with the media.
Over the past decades, people have
less and less time AVAILABLE due to careers,
divorces and the constant struggle for success. Unfortunately, parents
spend less time with their children, which is an important RESPONSIBILITY
that nothing can replace. Therefore, parents must spend more time with
their children, otherwise, the old values will slowly DISAPPEAR
and new ones, established by television, will take their place.
Television has INCREDIBLE
power. In a society where
money means SUCCESS and influence,
television has taken its place among the most prosperous of businesses.
The solution of changing its role in society
lies within man himself. Television has much to offer because it is a
great tool for LEARNING, communication and
for information. We, society, are responsible for making television a THREAT
to traditional values and future generations.
