A tool of 20th century commercially-controlled media, now used as a tool of mass surveillance.

Television was the first technology to allow images to be transmitted for remote viewing. It was quickly adopted by governments worldwide as an effective means of broadcasting.

Concerns

Truthstream Media opines that TV consumption has over decades enforced an attitude in society where most of the people believe whatever the mainstream media tells them without critical analysis. Technical research from the 60s onward, into how different flickering frequencies, among other things, lead to different brain wave patterns that make people absorb information in an uncritical way, may have played a role in this if it has been applied on a wider scale.[1]

Worldview

Full article: Propaganda

Television, through repetition of the same notion over and over again, enforces a worldview that on the political side assumes certain things and questions very little. The enforcing of this worldview starts at a young age through TV program for children and goes from there to cover all sections of society and all entertainment aspects (shows, movies, video games, etc). While critical content is produced, it is outweighed by those productions that enforce this worldview - which in general follows the line that America is fighting for what is right, not so much for it's own gain and empire. Domestic television productions around the world, especially in Europe, are generally concerned with other topics, but the outreach of Hollywood and the productions geared towards children, which are produced by the American entertainment complex, are factoring in as explained above. News reporting in Europe again, is very much in line to US foreign policy and overwhelmingly uncritical.

Example

The Delta Force (1986)

The movie "The Delta Force" depicts a successful rescue attempt of American hostages from Iran. It is based on what the real operation Eagle Claw would have been, if it had been successful. Unlike the movie, however, it ended before any firefight.[2] The operation is described and remembered as a debacle,[3] but the movie does not give a clue as to what really happened and the viewer is left with the impression of good American soldiers fighting Islamic "terrorism".

Spying

CIA and MI5 have developed software to use televisions as surveillance tools.[4]

Brainwashing

On average, US citizens spend about 5 hours/day watching television. John Whitehead suggests that they "are being programmed to accept the brutality, surveillance and dehumanizing treatment of the American police state as things happening to other people."[5]
