Television has brought the political life into everyone’s living room and made politics a fixed part of everyday life, therefore enhancing and spreading democracy in ways no other medium before could even come close to. The internet and new media have taken over some of these important responsibilities and pushed the dissemination of democracy to the next level. However, I strongly believe that television and online media are not only complementary, but will eventually merge. Already television has transformed the world forever, but I think that its potentials are still far from exhausted.
