Ever since I published this photo in 2007 I have seen this photo being used in thousands of web sites, magazines, cards, and posters. Sites like www.forbes.com/sites/laceyrose/2010/08/23/furthering-debu..., www.ehow.com/facts_5121157_pros-cons-tv.html, www.parents.com/blogs/dadabase/tag/watching-tv/, Iranian's www.presstv.ir/detail/175802.html, gulfNews.com, Australia's www.abc.net.au/news/2011-11-12/television-not-that-bad-fo..., and the list goes on.

A child watching TV.

This child is one of the millions of Americans who watch far too much TV.

Actually, the real child hates TV and I had to take the picture quickly before the screen damaged his eyes since the Large TV was too close and watching a screen in the dark is even worse. He also got really bored since the TV screen had only a static.
