Television is a "Frankenstein monster, which no one knows how to control or direct." At least that’s how the British satirist (and fervent Catholic thinker) Malcolm Muggeridge characterized it in his 1977 book Christ and the Media
. Just as he predicted, there’s not a shred of doubt mass media has the greatest influence in American society today -- at the expense of moral compass. If only he could see technology’s new toys.
