Neil Postman II

Since we live today in just such a neighborhood (now sometimes referred to as a “global village”), you may get a sense of what is meant by context-free information by asking yourself the following question: How often does it occur that information provided you on morning radio or television, or in the morning newspaper, causes you to alter your plans for the day, or to take some action you would not otherwise have taken, or provides some insight into some problem you are required to solve?
Neil Postman: Amusing Ourselves to Death (1985)
