21 May Repetitive Media
Do you ever feel when your trying to wind down you turn on the TV and all you see is repeats, turn on the radio repeats and go on social media to only find the content is also repetitive. I find myself wondering if we are all being programmed subconsciously to all follow the same train of thought. We have so many talented and creative people in this world that would love a chance to showcase their talents yet we spend our budgets repeating content.
I will not name and shame the particular TV channels or Radio Stations but the repetitive content is mind-blowing. Yes, we understand that they do this to increase popularity of the content they are playing but seriously all day everyday! I feel sorry for the TV presenters and Radio presenters that get paid to listen and be part of this repetitive market. I am sure most if not all of them would love to say how they feel and would love to push fresh content but know it could in turn jeopardise their jobs. So I completely understand why they just put up and shut up as the industry they are in they could be replaced in a blink of an eye.
So is this they way it is if we do not like or agree with something we must just put up and shut up to live a peaceful life? The fact someone speaks their mind and thinks outside of the box is seen as a threat! Why, why is bringing fresh ideas and potentially revamping the way we do things for the better always seen as a threat. I myself am one of those people, which is probably why I struggle in corporate environments.
What are your thoughts on this? Do you feel you are being brainwashed with repetitive media content? How do you deal with it?
