Problem

Parochial escapist media entertainment

Other Names:
Bias in the media against development and social transformation
Mass media bias towards entertainment and reassurance
Parochial news coverage
Unimaginative programme proposals
Claim:

The present and potential influence of the entertainment and information media is enormous. The escapist, diversion-oriented programming which today indicates one dimension of our paralysis, is being sustained by the managers of media as a service to the established structures. This contributes to the isolation, victimization and parochialism of local people and is a key factor in limiting their global possibilities.
