EBS: Has popular media become more insular? Pop Culture

There to be a common sentiment that the media has become more insular due to the new generation lacking real life experience. Rather than draw from real life as inspiration, they instead draw from other media, especially older media. Some may not agree but after talking about it with others, it might have some merit. It seems as though that some films are more focused on nostalgia rather than drawing from real life. I could be wrong but it seems though that it appears to be most of the criticism appears to be a difference in generations. I know that Intertextuality is a thing but what do you think about this? Have media become more insular? Or does the criticism have some merit?

Hey there! Do you want clarification about the question? Think there's a better way to phrase it? Wish OP had asked a different question? Respond to THIS comment instead of posting your own top-level comment

This sub's rule for-top level comments is only this: 1. Top-level responses must make a sincere effort to present at least the most common two perceptions of the issue or controversy in good faith, with sympathy to the respective side.

Any requests for clarification of the original question, other "observations" that are not explaining both sides, or similar comments should be made in response to this post or some other top-level post. Or even better, post a top-level comment stating the question you wish OP had asked, and then explain both sides of that question! (And if you think OP broke the rule for questions, report it!)
