    In response to michael's discussion question, I think the answer is yes. Actually, I think television in General has that effect, but specifically speaking about commercials, yes... For example, we're told that things have been scientifically proven to be the best (ex: diet pills), so we take that as truth and believe in it. We buy the products, we tell our friends it's the best, and so on. But do we ever test products to be sure that the commercial claims are true? No. Because as media-controlled Americans, if a good commercial says that something is a certain way, we take that as truth. And that makes us ignorant.
