Am I the only one who is saddened by the state of our media’s focus on actors, actors, actors, actors!!!
Every morning show, talk show, late night show, and now most NEWS shows only seem to report on MOVIES and ACTORS exclusively. Of course we all know its just shilling for their most recent products but I do fondly remember when AUTHORS and ARTISTS used to be important components of talk shows.
How do we get our children interested in writing or painting when all they see is an endless parade of ACTORS, ACTORS, ACTORS, AND MORE ACTORS.
Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy going to the movies and I think actors are very talented. But, I also enjoy reading short stories and novels. I enjoy seeing great art. I would love to be able to turn on mainstream TV and see authors being interviewed with as much regularity as actors.
Am I the only one who thinks this way???
Please share if you agree.
