Television is one of the most important aspects of society. It is also one of the most controversial. Is it healthy? Is it good? It is so controversial due to all of the different views and opinions people have in today’s society. In my perspective, television is very influential and it can be both good, and bad. It can be very informative, and at the same time very negative. Television also catches people’s attention, and it can be very time consuming as well. Without the television media society would be less informed on what is going on in the world, from different music cultures to the cultures of people in and out of the country. People would however read more, although at the same time for those physically impaired, that rely on what they listen to would have an even greater challenge keeping up with everything that is going on with the world today.
With busy lifestyles today, television seems to be th
e only way that people can communicate and, or be informed on what is happening around the world. Also it has its bad influences it also has its great influences which can lead to better judgment, knowledge on what is going on, and it can lead in the making of leadership in the our future of tomorrow. Although, some television events are healthy to the mind such as learning television shows for the children of tomorrow, learning reading habits can be much more healthier to the stimulation of the brain. These can lead to bad influences towards the younger crowds that end up leading to bad behavior. We also receive information on what diseases are going around, and what to watch out for. Without television society today would be a lot different due to so many lifestyles adapting to the media"tms daily life and schedule. However there is other resources for the physically impaired as well, such as their family and friend which can read to them and last, but not least there is also the radio media which also can inform you on what is going on with the world. Television catches the viewers attention whether it is about news headlines or about Television shows that go on such as Friends, The Real World, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, One Bad Trip, The Bachelor, and Survivor are the types of events that are going on in which society spends too much time planning to watch and watching these shows which can take up a good portion of the everyday life. We receive information on the hottest celebrities and television shows, which can end up being very negative to what is going on today, such as violence, and harassment. Society sees the weather forecast, top headlines from missing people to the war that is occurring as we speak. Society would be less informed with top headlines since television is the number one attention grabber in society, however without this form of media, people would have the habit of reading more and having more time to get things done opposed to spending several hours sitting on a couch watching their favorite daily shows. The negative side to not having the television media today would be for the physically impaired, which are not able to read and their best form of knowledge come from listening to the television media whether it is a news cast or a live sport event, it would take up a great resource for them. A few other great examples are violent, horror, and action movies that reveal weapons and death. In conclusion, to my perspective television is better than it is worse towards society today due to the information and knowledge that we are able to receive from this media.
