The ascendancy of television and now the Internet has created unprecedented changes in the way we process and communicate information. Like other media, there are countless benefits to these outlets, but as Neil Postman first warned us over twenty years ago, there are also many dangers when the screen shapes public speech. This classic work critiques our entertainment-driven culture and explores what we must beware of in the era of electronic discourse.
