Persuasive Speech Television – The violent message


This speech persuades us that there is far too much violence on TV. It says that there is a definite link between the violence we watch and the way we behave. In other words we have become desensitised to cruelty and acts of horror. We have come to accept them as the norm. This speech challenges us to watch TV and to turn it off every time there is a killing, an attack or some brutal act. We will probably find it is off more often than on. The short poem summarizes the contents of the speech in a catchy way and makes an unusual ending to it.
