According to Marie Winn and her essay The Plug-In Drug television has various negative effects on our society today In her essay Winn explores the ways in which television has harmfully caused disruptions with the quality of family life rituals and values She recognizes there is a problem with our society and the way in which it is consistently influenced by television I am able to agree with Winn on this point but I do not feel that the totality of the influence is negative Television today has a lot of positive effects and influences on our society and our American culture Television gives us helpful information various forms of education and entertainment which are all a part of the positive effects that television has on our society On a day to day basis the television keeps us informed with plenty of helpful information We are informed through the television of the latest news weather and information which are important in our daily lives The television often acts as an almanac dictionary and an eye into the world around us It informs us of the most recent happenings around the world within seconds Such as the OJ Simpson trial the Oklahoma City bombing and the wars taking place in the Middle East Through TV we can be warned about almost anything from a hurricane approaching to the fact that the stock market is falling The television in todays society has become one of our most basic resources for information We use the TV as a convenient way to find out some of the simplest information such as the date time and what is going to be on channel 11 at 930 Our American society has designed its lifestyle around the convenience of the TV and the fact that it is so easily accessible The television has other purposes besides convenience It is a great way of educating the people
