This appealing volume helps readers grasp the controversies of our ever-present technological companion, the television. Editor Emma Carlson-Berne has arranged essays in a pro versus con format that debate several subtopics, so that readers become aware of the crux of the controversies. Across three chapters, readers will evaluate whether television is harmful, what the relationship is between society and television, and whether television should be controlled. For example, Michael Tracey reports that networks should be responsible for harmful content, while Adam Thierer emphatically positions the parents as being responsible for harmful content. The readers get to decide for themselves how they feel about it, after engaging their critical thinking skills.
