'The radio is nothing but a conduit through which pre-fabricated din
can flow into our homes. And this din goes far deeper, of course,
than the eardrums. It penetrates the mind, filling it with a babble of
distractions, blasts of corybantic or sentimental music, continually
repeated doses of drama that bring no catharsis, but usually create
a craving for daily or even hourly emotional enemas.'
Aldous Huxley; On Silence; 1946."

Wonder what Huxley would have to say about TV. Especially TV these days?
