2. TVs were just becoming popular in 1950. ...

I wonder if it merely a coincidence that the IQ levels have steadily dropped since.

6. By the 1970's and 1980's

researchers knew that TV had a deleterious effect on IQ levels. Watching more than 8 hours a week was associated with limits in vocabulary (language is dumbed down to the lowest common denominator) and severe impacts on attention span.

Reading books increases both of these.

We now see it getting worse because of the internet and social media. 120 characters, emoticons, and short web only TV episodes only make this more dramatic of a change.
