Sometimes someone says it just right

In a couple of recent posts, I made some lengthy statements about marketing and media. I just heard Bill Maher say something that succinctly captures my viewpoint:

"Television is not a medium of entertainment [anymore]. It’s a medium of advertising that occasionally entertains."

I don’t agree with everything Bill Maher says, especially about religion, but I whole-heartedly concur with the above statement. And it’s not limited to television either.
