With the rise of peak TV two decades into the 21st century, television has disrupted the film industry, and it has produced – and been affected by – dramatic changes in the popular consumption of visual media. While movie attendance continued its steep decline in 2017 (reaching a 25-year low), network, cable, and internet-streaming platforms combined to air nearly 500 scripted television shows in 2017, an increase from around 200 shows in 2002.
From state-sponsored propaganda to cartoons, photography, and cinema newsreels, the cultural and political work done in service of modern warfare is significantly visual.
