How Television Affects Children
Did you know that a study that was reported by the American Academy of Pediatrics discovered that there is more violence in children’s programming than any other programming?(Adams, 2010) Today’s children are influenced by what they see and hear on television whether they are watching a cartoon or an educational program.

In this show I believe there are many situations where there are indications of
interpersonal conflict. In the episode that I watched, it touched on quite a few conflicts that were
very easy to catch after reading the chapters. As we saw in Chapter 8, extending social support to
another, can backfire and make things worse if the person in need does not view it as being

It can be entertaining and educational, and can open up new worlds for kids, giving them a chance to travel the globe, learn about different cultures, and gain exposure to ideas that may never encounter in their own community. Shows with a prosocial message can have a positive effect on kids’ behavior; programs with positive role models can influence viewers to make positive lifestyle changes. However, the reverse can also be true: kids are likely to learn things from TV that parents don’t want them to learn. TV can affect kids’ health, behavior and family life in negative ways

Grierson referred to the documentary as a text that has ‘documentary value’(Grierson, 1926). Using this definition as a starting point, discuss whether ‘reality’ TV should be classified as a documentary.
“We take television for granted in the same way as we take everyday life for granted.” (Silverstone, 2000) Reality television, being a mix of the two, is often an over-looked and disrespected television genre, as it can seem worthless and therefore worthy of the term ‘trash TV’. However it appears that reality television has started to take over our screens and is pushing other, more reputable genres out of the schedule. John Grierson is said to be the man who first coined the phrase

TV has become perhaps the primary vehicle that society receives its information and presents its values and expectations. One of the most important roles television plays is its presentation of news and information. What a station chooses to present as newsworthy can play a strong role in how people view their society and the world around them. Often, television news sources have followed a philosophy of “if it bleeds, it leads”, focusing on violence in urban environments. This violence occurs more frequently in black neighborhoods, resulting in what amounts to essentially as a steady, nightly stream of reports on

These numbers do not even include shows, such as My Little Pony, which is based on a specific toy.

With such success in traditional advertising, marketing executives no longer just rely on simply commercials but have sought the minds of young Americans through every avenue available. Entire channels have been devoted to creating a culture that worships consumerism. For example, Walt Disney products have been touted via television

Of course television and print are all profitable based on ratings and sales. Sometimes if need be, they can misconstrue certain topics to ensure they hold their standing or even project to a certain audience. Although all media purports to give a fair and balanced portrayal of national events, it becomes obvious that Fox News and Patriot Radio stations can lean right, and NBC, CBS, et al can lean left.
