The only thing we dare be judgmental about anymore is food, and we’re draconian about that. But TV for example? There’s better and worse, but to say it’s all crap? Nobody dares. However fundamentally it is crap, and it IS better to do than to watch. Reading by comparison IS doing. You are decoding, you are imagining because the images are not thrown in front of you. It’s assisted creating. TV is not. No matter how good.
