Television is educational and avital part of keeping us with today's world ,most people are saying that it's a negative influences especially on youth , but iam saying that it's according to the user , if we are using it correctly so we are gainning positive impacts and results , but if we are using it badly , so sure we are gainning negative impacts , for me , i use it to know openions and thinking of other people , yes i benefit , all of us not only me should use it correctly to avoid negative influences and to be aperfect youth , try to limit time to watch television , we should be smart and intelligent on how to use it , every age has its own techiniques and ways of what we are going to watch , by this way we are going to avoid violence , apathy and stunted brain growth .

I will start out by first giving a definition for this debate and I would like to first thank my opponent for instigating this debate.

Television - The content, etc., of television programmes. [1]
Negative - Detrimental or unfavorable. [2]

Now before I contest any of this claims, I'd like to ask my opponent to give me sources for his claims. The reason is that all of what he's claimed are not backed up by facts and I want sources for this. Then, it can be a fair debate. Thanks.

It can have negative and positive influences, depends on who's in control of the station and if you look into who owns the main stream media stations, its always the same billionaire men trying to dumb down the public.
