I feel like you’re voicing a lot of Postman in your critique.
“Television is altering the meaning of ‘being informed’ by creating a species of information that might properly be called disinformation. Disinformation does not mean false information. It means misleading information — misplaced, irrelevant, fragmented or superficial information — information that creates the illusion of knowing something, but which in fact leads one away from knowing.”
― Neil Postman — Amusing Ourselves to Death: Public Discourse in the Age of Show Business — 1985
Well said sir!
