You are the chief speaker in a debate on the topic: The television has done more harm than good. Write your speech for or against the topic
Mr. Chairman, president and members of Amodu Youths Club, distinguished ladies and gentlemen. I welcome you all to this symposium and at the same time thanking everybody for sparing your time at this yuletide to attend the activities of greater citizens of this town in years to come who have thought it wise and rightly too to have chosen the topic: “The Television Has Done More Harm Than Good”.
The television is a powerful medium that combines both the visual and audio functions into one system of communication. Many years back, it was the black and white type. It is beautiful, sleek, attractive and so powerful that its visuals lend credence to its weakness, you will agree with me.
The youths are no more focused, they are no more themselves, they can’t think deeply again so far it is shown on television. The television has assumed the role of teacher. They learnt all sorts of things from the television. In this regard it is doing more harm than good. For example, the kind of dresses put on for shows one stage only are now the new thing in vogue exposing sensitive parts of their body leading to many exposed to s****l harassment, in this wise it has done more harm than good.
Materials not meant for them are openly shown to them unrestricted such as blue films, kidnappings, hooliganism and d***s. In a way of advert, they have learnt bad habits. For example, “cigarette is good for you”, “Beer brings out the best in you”. Considering the various choice of words of the advertisers, the television had done more harm than good.
I agree the television is a medium of education but where a student leaves home in the morning and branches at a friend’s house or sneaks out of school to visit a friend that has video films and only selects pornographic ones via the television because the video cant show on its own, there they learnt various s****l acts with a resultant effect of a girl of fourteen years giving birth today – the one we cal baby-mother. You’ll agree with me that the television had done more harm than good to our youths in the society today.
I am not saying that the television is bad, I have it at home. It is educative and informative but when it lost its credence to destructive tendencies, many of our youths become drop-outs, drug addicts, bullies and hooligans. These are bad effects of television that is why I say that the television has done more harm than good when we compare the behaviors of the youths in the society today than what it was in the past.Tags: ESSAY
