Here’s thread of dangerous crackpot things a #civil conservative spreads on the internet, between shape shifting for #bothsides tv hits. (Nope, not Fox News. Can’t blame them.) https://t.co/al4ETil6hg
Confession: I was extremely late to get the risk Fox News injects into society’s immune system.
Why? Because I thought *all* tv news, especially cable news, was bad, and I thought people were blind to this.
Now I still think this. (But get Fox is on another level.)
The sad part is, most tv news is background noise media consumption. It’s what I call “low intent.” We don’t consume it to be informed. We consume it to feel connected.
What can we replace that low hum of stimulation with in elders’ living rooms and lobbies and gyms?
