When the change from sponsored programming to network programming took place, the amount of advertising dramatically increased. Was this a positive or negative development for the general public at the time? Why or why not?
You seem to be asking whether increased advertising is an advantage to the general public.
My answer is a resounding NO! This plethora of advertising is one of the factors that got people over their heads in spending and maxed-out credit cards.
What do you think?
