TV doesn't allow Deep Understanding

TV receiverImage via Wikipedia
"Television can’t sit still.  In fact, it can’t even slow down, which makes any sort of deep understanding or involvement in issues almost impossible because the average person requires time to contemplate issues like education or the economy or the environment or health care in order to fully understand them.  And that’s the problem.  Because what most people don’t realize is that contemplating or reflecting deeply gets you to insights that you can never get to if you’re just rushing through a question or an issue or from one topic to the next."
