Tv does give us insight on events in the world though. Before tv we didnt know much about the world and if we did we just heard about it. We never saw anything. But tv changes that. We have seen the little rock central fight, Brown vs. Board, Stupnik, berlin crisis, and the Nixon and kennedy debate! The nixon and kennedy debate was a game changer because before this no one actually saw a debate they just heard it. With this ability now people saw how nervous, clammy and sweaty Nixon was. But on the other hand Kennedy looked perfect. He was calm and relaxed and looked great. But you have to put in perspective that Nixon refused to put makeup on and also he had a cold so that is why he didn't appear as relaxed and calm as Kennedy. From seeing that people thought Kennedy was a better president because he could handle being under pressure more.
