Old Wisdom Quote.

The relevance of the following quote is pretty amazing... given when it was written and who wrote it:

To a very considerable extent the media of mass communications in a given country reflect the political, economic and social climate in which they flourish.
We are currently wealthy, fat, comfortable and complacent. We have currently a built-in allergy to unpleasant or disturbing information. Our mass media reflect this. But unless we get up off our fat surpluses and recognize that television in the main is being used to distract, delude, amuse and insulate us, then television and those who finance it, those who look at it and those who work at it, may see a totally different picture too late.
