All could be examples of noise/music habituation/conditioning. In
other words, have their favourite media icons/idols start a new craze for
some other "thing to do" and watch how quickly the herds will follow and
_not miss their previous habits at all.
I'm afraid this won't happen. Do you think Madonna, Michael
Jackson, U 2, and others are going to tell people they
should turn off their TVs and stereos and read? Primarily,
these icons don't operate through the print media, but
through the audio/visual electronic media.
