Allen Kanner securitizes the claim that television has educational value. Television viewing is the largest source of marketing to children; it is associated with violent behaviour, obesity, depression, low self-esteem, poorer social relationships, drug and alcohol abuse, and with poorer cognitive and academic functioning. It is a poor educational tool that interferes with superior ways of learning.
