TV and the manipulation of emotions

Katie Hinderer | 19 May 2012

In my opinion, too many people allow their emotions to be manipulated by the externals of a TV show – the costume, the scenery, the music, the fluttery feeling you have when two of your favorite characters are together. Not enough viewers look critically at these shows. Not enough step back and consider how they would truly feel if this happened to them.

The trouble, as with many programs today, is that the show glorifies bad actions that lead to good results.
