Since my last post, I’ve made a large number
of changes to tvsmarter. Especially to the
Democracy page, Aggression page and the
Consumerism page.

A big thank you to Chris who sent me these links:

http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows/persuaders/

http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows/persuaders/interviews/rapaille.html

Despite the fact that Frontline is a TV show, these have
great video clips describing the effort and sophistication
used to get us to buy.

Also, this is where I got the great Frank Luntz quote
(now near the top of the Democracy Page) and inspired
me to add a “Product Placement” category to the Democracy
and the Consumerism pages.

Also a big thank you to Jeff, author of

(highly recommended) who has kindly added
a link to tvsmarter in his Druid Journal.

around the world.

I was very happy to see this entry on
TV Addiction added to Wikipedia.

appreciated!
