Facts about television

Really, these are facts about society.

First, "In the UK today, a young person is more likely to have a television in their bedroom than a father in their house by the end of their childhood. And even if fathers are around, their sons don’t engage with them much: boys spend 44 hours in front of a TV, smartphone or computer screen for every half hour in conversation with their fathers." That's from here.

Second, "the for-profit commercial TV industry is far more effective than our subsidized nonprofit arts organizations at engaging economically vulnerable members of our society". That's from here. It seems that it isn't the cost that puts poor people off going to the ballet.
