    Was die Massenmedien anbieten, ist keine populäre Kunst, sondern Unterhaltung, die wie Essen konsumiert, vergessen und durch ein neues Gericht ersetzt werden soll.

    ce que les mass media proposent, ce n'est pas de l'art populaire, mais des divertissements destinés à être consommés comme de la nourriture, oubliés et remplacés par un nouveau plat.

    средства массовой информации предлагают не популярное искусство, а развлечения, предназначенные для потребления в виде еды, забытые и замененные новым блюдом.
