Jacques Ellul and the radio

To me I liked the view about the radio. The reson for this is because I think that people do not think of the radio in the same way that people did in Ellul's period. The radio i think is more taken for granted today because we have so many other outlets of entertainment. The thing is though I dont think people realize how much they do listen to the radio. For example most people listen the radio when they are in their car and that is basically the only form of entertainment and they are alone so they have nothing else to do nut listen. That is why the radio can then use that time spent in the car to use its propaganda and persuade the listener to that point of view.

What did he write about the radio? Select a short quote and then discuss it. Otherwise it is hard to understand what you are writing about.

What you have written about radio is interesting. You are correct Americans spend an enormous amount of time listening to the radio, especially in their cars. This does make radio a great medium for mass persuasion.
