Video = Emotional Manipulation

Every once in awhile I stumble on something that is so simple and brilliant, well, it is simply brilliant:
"I am a fan of Neal Postman's view that reading promotes logical thinking, while video facilitates emotional manipulation."
This is why I think TV manipulates the general population to feel like buying things they don't need with money they don't have while striving only to appear better than the losers on Jerry Springer. I guess it all boils down to being a serf. It is not like I am not a serf myself, but at least I know I am a serf.
