The paper relates that music, television and media in general are part of American popular culture, with each one impacting the evolution of the cultural environment. The paper discusses how there are beneficial trends, such as the information capability and the perspective of relaxation and leisure time, but there is also the major trend of the media manipulating and influencing the social and personal behavior of individuals.

From the Paper:

"The notion of culture is a relative term in most periods of the time. Its definition varies according to the selection criteria and the point of reference. In this sense, for instance, while the French culture is considered to be one of the most important proofs of the civilized world from the point of view of the traditional art critic, there are those that see in the American manifestations of culture the most obvious signs of development of the evolution scale. However, the American culture, to those that decide to accept its existence, differs in terms of components from the rest of the traditional cultural values. Thus, music, television, media in general are part of what can today be described as the American popular culture."
