We lose freedom of choice when we’re unable to choose which commercials appeal to us. For decades, cable TV service providers have been forcing crappy content on their paying customers, and the indoctrination practices need to change. Furthermore, the problem with cable TV commercials is that they tend to steer viewers in the direction that the networks would like them to commit their precious resources. And often, the practice benefits the network’s partner who has paid for the ad and not the viewer.
When considering choice-over-options, it may suggest that choices align more with free markets than options do. Especially when the options only serve to indoctrinate the viewer through relentless broadcasts. Moreover, the latter may be perceived as a form of brainwashing the public.
