Is it just me or is the general population becoming dumber and more shallow with each day that passes? In my own country, we had *one* TV station which was considered tabloid-ish a few years ago and everyone made fun of it. Now, *all* TV stations (ok, almost) are like that. I don’t live in the US but I’ve been following the US entertainment industry as well and it seems the situation is similar.
Stupid reality shows.
Debates which (more and more) are becoming emotional rather than rational.
Instead of caring about the economy and things which affect them directly, people would rather find out what celebrities had for dinner.
… and the list could go on and on.
I’m noticing this in my own country and the situation seems similar in the US as well.
Maybe it’s just me getting older, I don’t know but no matter how subjective I am, it’s painfully obvious that the world we live in is becoming a tabloid.
