The Influence of Television Today Its eight oclock Wednesday evening and a rumor is circulating at a small-town high school in Massachusetts that a student named Jack is gay Jacks friends-one of whom is a 15-year-old girl who has been sexually active since she was 13 and another of whom has a mother who has recently committed adultery-assure him it would be okay with them if her were but admit their relief when he says he isnt An hour later in San Francisco a women named Julia is being beaten by her boyfriend Meanwhile in Los Angeles a young stripper who has given birth out of wedlock learns that her own mother locked her in a basement when she was three years old an experience that she thinks may explain her inability to love her own child Is this like a typical evening in America If someone that had never watched television had turned it on this night they would likely have concluded that it is made up pretty exclusicely of photogenic young people with disintergrating muclear families and liveral attitudes about sex This obviously cant be an accurate picture but what might this person have learned from the programs he or she had watched Would all the sex violence and diminished morals he or she had watched teach antisocial behavior Or might he or she have learned from prime time dramas and sitcoms the behavior and attitudes of America today This is the question we must ask all of ourselves I started this paper off thinking that television was a positive source Although through researching this topic I have now found that there are more negative points then positive points I have concluded that because of all of the negative role models that tv allows us to view the violence that is introduced to todays youth the television programs and the news we watch daily that bring us false information about todays society
