Are You A Couch Potatoe!?

" As Scholars of popular culture we spend a good deal of our time resisting the widespread assumption that perople are passive consumers ot the mass media"(Penley&Ross)

Is it safe to say that people who sit on their couch and watch television all day during their free time are persuded and influenced by the media they watch. In many the cases of the war I believe this to me true . The media plays a huge role in manupilating and altering their viewers opinions,basically brainwashing them. Forcing some individuals to support a war that they really know nothing about,but is it safe to say that it is the media or just the war itself. Of course the television plays a role in the war for those individuals who passively consume the media. The television can be used as a weapon during the war it is present in every home and most of the shows we watch define who we are as people.
