“We show what we want.” “We just choose not to do so.”
what can we see
When observing television and the internet, you are allowed to showcase what you want to the world. Just as long as it is not promoting anything illegal. That’s means you can show what you want on the television, but a lot of people do so. And there reason being is because they don’t want to lose advertisers.
That’s right, news outlets and television shows censor themselves because they want to be able to collect on all those ad dollars. And when you are showcasing something they (ad companies) disagree with, they can pull their sponsorship. Because they may not want their brand to be affiliated with what you’re promoting.
where’s the freedom
We have all this freedom to do as we please, but there has to be boundaries. That means if you want to make the dollars, then watch what you say and do. But let’s assume for a second that you don’t abide by the rules. Then what you can do is go online. Yet you still have to be careful about what you decide to showcase to the world.
Why, well there are rules on the internet as well. Like for instance, you can’t upload anything on YouTube because they have deals with advertisers as well. So you have to watch what you say and do. That means creating your own website, and then you’re able to say and do as you please so long as it stays in the realm of law.
restrictions from full freedom
I always wondered, why does one go for full freedom. And I don’t mean breaking the law, I mean, where can I view something entertaining without worrying about advertisers? Because since so many rely on ads to make money, is there a place to view anything and it is what it is? Can I speak freely, publicly about a particular topic, and face losing a gig?
And the reality is that there are outlets, it’s just that they are not as popular to follow. And the ones that do, switch up and monitor themselves. And like I said prior, the money made from treading a level course is much better than taking the risk.
