Realistic Escapsim

Media adopts accuracy as a means to entertain generations bored with fantasy

Implications - The entertainment industry is fueled by the overarching themes of fantasy and escapism, but the modern consumer is growing tired of the imaginative and instead becoming obsessed with the accurate. Real life proves to be the most appealing concept for consumers that prefer the themes of money problems and civil unrest over inflated celebrity culture or fictional characters.
