Well articulated! I didn’t watch TV for a year and since I tuned back in just for news, I find myself creeped out by how contrived it all is, and by how easily I could become addicted to its mind numbing tease. It’s outdated, and the broadcasters know it, so their dark patterns encouraging addiction seemed to have been cranked up. So much so, I’ll probably watch the next Bachelor episode tonight.
