The most outrageous example is how TV glorifies criminal driving like
speeding and cell-driving. The auto industry knows that car crashes mean
car sales and they pay TV to encourage highway mayhem.

NBC's 'cynical' mind-control games
The network admits it uses "behavior placement" on popular shows to
encourage healthy, eco-friendly habits \ufffd and sell ads.

First there was product placement. Now there's "behavior placement," the
planting of subtle messages in popular TV shows to encourage certain viewer
behavior \ufffd such as healthy eating or eco-conscious habits \ufffd and thereby
convince sponsors that their brands will be associated with "feel-good,
socially aware" shows. NBC has owned up to the practice, reports The Wall
Street Journal, as part of its Green Initiative: If "Tina Fey is tossing a
plastic bottle into the recycling bin," the theory goes, audience members
will be more apt to do the same. Innocuous or "Orwellian"?

What's the big deal? Despite the hubbub, the principles NBC promotes are
"fairly innocuous," says Amy Chozick in the Wall Street Journal. "Climate
change may be controversial," but these shows don't make a political
statement \ufffd they simply show characters making green-conscious decisions.
"Most people can agree... [this] is a good thing."
"What your TV is telling you to do"

Unfortunately, healthy habits aren't the bottom line: Clearly, for NBC,
behavior placement is about dollar signs and cynicism, says Jon Bershad in
Mediaite. The execs' attempts to manipulate their viewers to draw eco-
conscious, health-conscious advertisers is "soul-crushing" proof that
"everything is a business" these days.

But the fact that some geniuses were laughed at does not imply that all who
are laughed at are geniuses. They laughed at Columbus, they laughed at
Fulton, they laughed at the Wright brothers. But they also laughed at Bozo
the Clown.
Carl Sagan (1934 - 1996)
