This is a society that has based mainstream social life off of television and has found the necessity of books as minuscule and almost nonexistent centuries ago. Ray Bradbury (author of Fahrenheit 451) noticed that something like this was almost starting to begin in the early 1950s.

Sanderson and Siegfried supported the work of Rodney Fort highlighting the necessity of having an uncertain league and maintaining the highest level of competitive balance in order to preserve the fans interest, since consumers are not interested to attend games in which the results can be easily determined beforehand. Recently, Berri and Schmidt (2004) found out that the NBA has a very low level of competitive balance and it has the lowest level of it out of the major sport leagues. This result will be supported by the findings of this paper too. The effect of the introduction of the salary cap on the competitive has been investigated by Kesenne (2000) who, using a simple model based on two teams, concluded that the CB is positively affected but owners have to overspend on talent by raising the contracts of the players. Zimbalist (2010) instead, focused his attention on the collective Bargaining Agreement, considering the NFL hard cap as the model to follow to sustain the competitive balance, but he believed that the NBA’s soft cap system has the power to overcome some of the CB problems, but he wasn’t able to support his

One of the things often remarked within the show is the TV trope of a happy ending after 22 minutes, Bojack Horseman does not adhere to such standards. The episode endings range from suicide, drug and alcohol abuse, loss of loved ones, and forming a bond with a long-lost sister.

Media, including television, cell phones, social media, ect., is spoon feeding the world conflict, hand delivering minor social issues that are not necessarily as hard pressing as we believe. While many scholars disagree (including Steven Johnson in Watching TV Makes you Smarter), what appears on the television screen of an average person is just the combination of pop culture items mixing together to re-affirm common beliefs. This is a worldwide occurrence, usually beginning in America and spreading throughout the world, a form of mass globalization that provides the world everything it needs without anyone lifting a finger. Joseph Joffe argues this as a form of soft power in The Perils of Soft Power, and it is slowly draining civilization of individuality. A fresh individuality is required to keep innovation and inventing, indulging the world further into an unending cycle of convenience, yet this indispensable cycle is simply inevitable.
Jay Chiat’s essay in Advertising and Humanity presents his laudatory opinions about the media’s power of persuasion. At first Chiat’s tone seems hostile towards television and the Internet, but shifts to a more appreciative tone. He demonstrates how information can be easily distorted by a fraud hiding behind a computer screen but he also claims the media is an outlet in which ordinary people have the same amount of power to present the truth as someone who is more potent.

Through his use of asyndeton, Chiat states, “Media interferes with our capacity to experience naturally, spontaneously, and genuinely.”
