His use of diction provides a way to strengthen his argument and get his point across to the reader. He uses the repetition of words such as cruel and violent to further emphasize what television programs display to viewers. He uses anaphora when saying, “It might just be that cruel people find cruel TV shows to watch. And the more cruel we are, the more programming will be tailored at our wants” (2).

Marx’s theory of commodity fetishism defines the abstraction of a product’s true value with a “magical” presentation of product through advertising and institutional brand name policies. The dominance of the bourgeoisie/capitalist owner classes illustrates the power of commodity fetishism that promotes products to the proletariat/consumer in the marketplace. The fetish qualities of product detract from the physicality of the production process, which is then diluted through advertising promotions for the unwary consumer. This type of promotion is a great problem for consumers, since many of them may tricked into buying a faulty or unhealthy product through brand-name trickery.

Television also promotes hedonistic consumerism, TV encourages the audience to view themselves as having an equal right to purchase high end items. I found it interesting to find out that people who watch television for an extensive period of time leads to higher rates of spending and to lower savings.
