There are some reasons that no television would be bad. There are a lot of educational television channels, such as the Discovery Channel, A&E, and the History Channel. There are also some educational television shows that I love to watch, like Law and Order and CSI. Another thing that I find is a very important aspect of television is the speed of news travel. The radio and print does transport news, but I think that television does it best. We can actually see what is going on exactly when it is going on.
Over all, I think that the negative and positive aspects of television even out in the long run.
