THE MEDIA

The key features of the Media problem are:

· Wastes many years of life consuming content

· Print media kills trees causing deforestation

· Toxic ink from print media pollutes environment

· Trivial content distracts away from relevant issues

· Spreads propaganda that is harmful to society

· Publishes and distributes biased articles

· Instigates violent hostility that leads to war

· Brainwashes consumers with subliminal messages

· Broadcasting hazardous electromagnetic radiation

· Content paid for and controlled by highest bidder

· Viewing TV programs causes mental retardation

· News programs report false information as fact

· Media market saturated with useless material

We'll be right back after a word from our sponsor.
