  The Truth about Television
The drop in IQ scores was large and consistent, and it could not be attributed to television attracting an abundance of children from lower socio-economic groups or crowded families.
It appears that the increased family contact brought about by television is not social except in the most limited sense: that of being in the same room with other people...the viewing atmosphere in most households is one of quiet absorption in the programs on the part of the family members who are present.
Every daytime hour spent in front of a television set is therefore one less hour the child has to ride a bike, play ball, join in team sports, or engage in other activities that would burn calories or raise the child's average metabolic rate.

 U B U W E B - Film & Video: Richard Serra
Television Delivers People is a seminal work in the now well-established critique of popular media as an instrument of social control that asserts itself subtly on the populace through "entertainments," for the benefit of those in power-the corporations that mantain and profit from the status quo.
Television emerges as little more than a insidious sponsor for the corporate engines of the world.
By appropriating the medium he is criticizing-using television, in effect, against itself-Serra employs a characteristic strategy of early, counter-corporate video collectives-a strategy that remains integral to video artists committed to a critical dismantling of the media's political and ideological stranglehold.
