It really comes down to content. Each medium can be good for learning if it’s educational in the first place. I love historical/fiction books like Rutherford’s “Paris” because I’m entertained and educated. Each medium, books or television, can be good if the content makes us think. Where television fails is the ridiculous percentage of brainless programming that research says is what “people” want. People want Burger King even though it’s not good for them. If television would rely less on research and more on viable, educational programming (like The Muppets, for instance), television would be a more healthy medium. Thanks for the post.

I did a poor imitation of Don Draper for 40 years before writing my first novel. I'm currently in the final stages of a children's book. Lucky me.
