Postman talks about how newscasters have to be slim and attractive to be viewed as being credible. He also says, "As a producer of a television news show, you would be well aware of these matters and would be careful to choose your cast on the basis of criteria used by David Merrick and other successful impresarios. Like them, you would then turn your attention to staging the show on principles that maximize entertainment value." then Postman continues to write about the importance of music in our media with catchy themes to draw our attention to the screens. These are all aspects of shows that we've viewed as successful, but they are also aspects of the media that (some of us) have disagreed with.
I'm going to open this up to you as the reader to agree or disagree with Postman is suggesting. If YOU were the producer for a TV show or news program, would you follow the suggestions he presents? would you have attractive celebrity-tailored news cast and promote them as being famous? Would you have overly sexual masculine and feminine reporters? Would you spend more then fourty-five seconds reporting an article? Would you have a catchy theme?
