Like Don Larsson's post, I'd agree that the initial list of authors seem a
bit unsubtle. Look at some of the critical education literature about pop
culture.  For example, a collection of essays called Popular Culture:
Schooling & Everday Life, edited by Henry Giroux & Roger Simon.  Other work
by Giroux would be relevant here as well, framing TV not as the ultimate
friend or enemy to education, but rather as a necessary and complex site of
engagement and negotiation.  Also to overcome the anti-TV bias in many of
the authors originally listed, a classic text about TV (not its education
context specifically) is John Fiske's Television Culture.
