By inundating viewers with endless reality shows and sitcoms, television networks use up most of a person's free time. Instead of learning a language, people are wasting their time watching MTV. Each of these shows are easy to watch, having little story to pay attention to, so viewers put in almost no effort to achieve a little reward.
Television promotes a lot untruths as truths. Unhealthy body images in the form of exceptionally thin actors and actresses is one such untruth. Unrealistic lifestyles are another negative influence on people who, as a result of what they see on television, feel that their lifestyle is not sufficient because it does not measure up to those they see on television programs. Finally, television de-sensitizes people to violence.
Most people are fully capable of separating what they see on a television from real life. If someone reacts negatively to something they see on television, it is likely that there was already an underlying issue unrelated to what they see on the screen. For the majority of viewers, television is simply a means of entertainment or thought-provoking content.
Television is just like any other media, including books, movies, and the Internet, in that it is not dangerous in and of itself. Instead of rejecting television altogether, viewers should be more careful of what shows they watch and how much television they watch. If they watch only uplifting shows and limit their television time to an hour or less a day, it will have no negative impact.
