  • Yes, become anti social

    Ones will not have tendency to go out to be with, especially when ones addicted. Ones will always fill their leisure time by watching tv and forget their responsibility towards the society. At last, ones will need to go out,then there we can see the bad effects of watching tv too much. Ones will not know how to socialize properly such as to respect each other. Ones also will lose their communication skill and influence with the bad attitudes in tv.

  • It is not the tool, it is how it is used

    Television in and of itself does not have the ability to influence moral behavior of people. However, it was instrumental in starting a trend to diminish the time a parent spends in close personal inter-relationships with their children. Prior to television the children were forced to reach out to their parents for companionship. Parents who use television as a baby sitter are the ones contributing to the moral decay of society and there are way too many of them doing it.

  • Yes, TV is a bad influence.

    TV is a bad influence on society for many reasons. First of all, it desensitizes us from violence and sex. Everything is glorified on TV. It is bad for normal people to look at violence or graphic sexual content and believe that it is ok or normal. Also, TV brainwashes us because we only see what the media wants us to see, and the media is run by corporations who have their own interests in mind.

  • It just doesnt fam

    Com on fam it doest work like that fam. We just watch shows for fun not to get brainwashed and stuff and it doest mke us go crazy famjam. So I conclude with this: lol o l ol ol o lo lo l lo l olo l o lo lo. Thank You.

  • Television does not influence the moral behavior of people, both good or bad.

    Television does not influence the moral behavior of people, both good or bad. I think people are smart enough to know that when they are watching television shows except for news that they are made up in Hollywood. I think the only thing that affects our behavior is the outside world and the people that we are actually around.

  • Television Dulls the Mind

    Television doesn't influence the moral behavior of people, it just makes them more sedentary and lazy. Laziness isn't immoral. As long as we have our reality TV shows and super-mega buffet restaurants, no one is going to really care what goes in national politics or even local elections. Imagine what would happen if we shut off the television and volunteer our time instead? Everyone would have better quality of life.

  • TV Is Entertainment

    I do not believe TV substantially influences the moral behavior of people, rather it be bad or good. I believe TV is a form of entertainment and that is what most people value it for. I think for the most part people do not behave badly based on what they see on TV. They are unfairly coerced into watching advertising though.

  • Moderate television viewing does not have a bad influence on moral behavior.

    Moderate television viewing does not have a bad influence on moral behavior. Negative influence as the result of television viewing is the result of too much undisciplined viewing and the project of oneself onto a desired character or lifestyle. As with anything, too much can begin to have a negative impact on those who are mentally vulnerable.

  • TV does not substantially influence the moral behavior of people in a bad way.

    I don't think that TV substantially influences the moral behavior of people in a bad way. Though I do believe when people are subjected to cruel and terrible things it does influence and impact them substantially, but such acts would have to be in credibly tragic and horrific. Such acts are not often on television. I think watch TV is relatively harmless.

  • Television By Itself Is Not Bad

    The medium by itself does not and can not have an effect on the moral behavior of a person or group of people. Culturally it can have an influence but not on the morality of people. Morality has to do with a person's belief. Morality has to do with wrong and right and people generally know what is wrong and right. TV can't change it.
