I'm a Japanese student who learns English.
Would someone explain me the meaning of "walking, talking, standing still cliche"? Whole text including this phrase is
"Nothing less than that view is valid, even in the walking, talking, standing still cliché that is television." Could someone help me?
I've heard it used because of those dolls that can 'say' phrases and move, so the idea is that TV isn't not a very advanced medium culturally, but even in that intellectually diminished world, they accept that view.
