More Viewing, Less Knowledge

Michael Morgan's article basically argues that the more people know about the war, the less likely they they are to support it. I believe this to be true because if more people were aware that the entire war is more about protecting oil than it was about going after Saddam Hussein, they wouldn't support it at all. I also think that it could go the other way. For example, if people don't know enough, some wouldn't support the war based on rumors. In the end, I think its best to keep the public informed. After all, isn't that what democracy is all about?

Morgan's article is about the relationship between television viewing and knowledge about the war and foreign affairs? What did the article conclude? What does it say about the role of television during wartime and in a democracy?
