Hello, in the next article I will talk a little about the involution that has suffered the television to go from paleotelivision to neotelivision and what are the factors that have led to the content that is spent in some large telivision chains Are contributing nothing to the current society.
Television throughout the world is going through a crisis both in its content and in its different forms of speech. Television is handled by entrepreneurs who only care about earning more and more money and do not care if they are leaving some teaching or showing something truly important to society. They are only interested in entertaining people with any audiovisual product and maintaining their rating.
Following the "evolution" of audiovisual models, television discourse is forced to a constant adaptation that is leading to the loss of reality and political and informational discourse are most affected. Because of the reality deficit, the lack of transparency, the transformation of the real to the spectacular and the eagerness of immediacy are one of the factors responsible for the information discourse is losing credibility and change it for another type of information Like the present pink, yellow and black.
This "evolution" as it is called, affects the informative genre and the journalistic discourse is harmed since it begins to give more interest to subjects such as sports, entertainment and competition programs than to subjects that should be of real relevance as the economy, Health and politics. In the informational genre, the message has taken a backseat to the point where a variety of dial tactics are used to "revitalize" it, ranging from the presentation of news with dwarfs, to presenters who strip naked while transmitting the news, Giving more importance to the way of giving the news than to the event itself.
Television is not the same as 20 years ago and its educational function is displaced by an evasive function and those programs that taught in a fun way were becoming programs where ever less knowledge is implemented and increasingly physical And resistance. Paleo television, and its pedagogical model where viewers made up a great class and those presented were the masters, has been abolished by neotelevicion and that destructive and absurd competition among television networks that have turned TV truth into telebasura.
Neither fun nor entertainment has survived this "evolution" has gone from healthy fun where you learned while you spent good, entertaining. And the difference with the naked eye is not much. But, before the television had some guidelines to inform and to transmit behaviors and knowledge. Now it matters more how to communicate than the same content and face more people than ideas. The law quite a bit and that variety of products without being very different between them without having a specific purpose. Only accompanying products that are created from movies, serials or singers with success.
As Humberto echo said, "we went from a documentary TV to a specular television with a strong narcissistic behavior" everything in order to seduce us to move away from reality and create another credible reality since what is shown on television, we want to superimpose To reality (hyperreality). It has instilled a disaster culture guided by the desire for disaster where violence and death have a preferred place causing a fascination with blood. Where in playful games you go from punishment to prize and denigrate yourself before an audience that does not satisfy your morbidity so easily and is always asking for more punishment for the one who is suffering.
"Today's television reflects the degradation of the human being in all its aspects" as he said E. Bustamante 1990 On television, where so much violence saturates and generates disinterest but not insensitivity and voyeurism of people that makes nothing intimate.
This is only part of the reason for the superficial and superficial contents that are shown on television and those (talke show) or speech spectacle which are an American model to sell more. This degradation of television will continue until we stop consuming that type of products. Because of ourselves, thanks to that lack of interest in being informed and learning new things useful for our lives makes us fall into these types of junk programs.
