Why the Mainstream is Vulgar? Technorati icon

December 19, 2006 | Filed under: Internet TV

From Chris Anderson:

"TV is not vulgar and prurient and dumb because the people who compose the audience are vulgar and dumb. Television is the way it is simply because people tend to be extremely similar in their vulgar and prurient and dumb interests and wildly different in their refined and aesthetic and noble interests." A Supposedly Fun Thing I'll Never Do Again.

Vulgar is also the easiest thing to make for television. Let's make 2007 the year where we tackle the hard stuff and give people the tools to be noble!
