Клековкина Е., Манн
Comment on the following statement:
| Many people enjoy watching television. However, some people believe it can be harmful. |
What is your opinion? Do you agree with this statement?
Some people say that watching television is interesting and entertaining, whereas others say that it is harmful.
I think that it all depends on what you watch and how long you watch it. First of all, good shows teach you how to think and analyze information. Second, if you watch, say, The Discovery Channel you learn a lot of interesting things about animals. Television is also a part of modern life and a big source of information.
Some other people say that television brainwashes innocent people and you can even harm your sight, if you watch it a lot.
It can indeed be harmful for your consciousness, if you watch stupid programs with low-level ideas. One should obtain other sources of information to not get brainwashed. Surely, after watching television longer than one hour one should do some eye-gymnastics.
In conclusion, I would like to say that anything can be harmful, if you misuse it and television is no exception. It can enlarge your knowledge and analytical abilities, if you work on developing them yourself or it can brainwash you.
