Turn off your TV tonight and read Amusing Ourselves to Death [Thanks, Dave] ← The curse of Predator → The most obscure joke of all time (at the expense of the voters, no less)? One reply on “Informing us ’till death” FWIW, matt, i half hate neil postman. a bit polemical in his stance…as you may or may not know, i did my senior thesis on the act/process of viewing television, and part of that included a major dis of some of the macluhan/postman shit, which is, well, sometimes too reductivist in its pose. but anyway. just a note that as much as i may mourn his passing, it’s not like, say, john fiske or todd gitlin died today.
