"Economist Juliet Schor estimated that for every hour of TV a person watches each week, he or she will increase his or her annual spending by about $200, according to a 1999 article in the Spokane, Wash., Spokesman-Review."

Do you buy that?

I'll buy that for a dollar.

When copy gets so enthymemic:

At $200 in extra spending for each hour watched, that means that the average person spends an extra $6,300 a year due to TV commercials that they wouldn't have spent if they didn't watch TV.

It suggests we've reached a point of massive self-contempt. We'll buy anything, even this logic.
