Television is an anesthetic for the pain of the modern world” – Astrid Alauda
It’s estimated the average American, starting at the young ripe age of two years old, watches more than 34 hours of television per week, plus an additional 3 hours of recorded media.
Corporate media is mostly funded by corporations. 75% of the commercial airtime is paid for by the 100 largest corporations in the USA, with budgets into the billions for some.When new content is created, it can attract or detract advertising and investment into the commercial side.
If some content is not liked by a corporation that funds a majority of the television network, then chances are they are going to hand them a script of what to say to keep public opinion in their favor
