If there is only one thing to be named, I should say it is TV.
As to why: it is just kind of hypnotic, so you can spend hours watching, plus it feeds you a whole lot of false or wrongly presented information (so the distraction works on two levels).
The other part of the why is: why do people even watch ? Because it might be nicer than the reality of their lives.

In my view, it's politics. More specifically, political debate and advertising.

For example, there's an ad running here against Mark Kelly that says absolutely nothing about his views, it only presents an attack taken directly from the "Russian Asset" narrative, and just changes it to "Chinese Asset". That, mixed with a cgi dancing in space astronaut, tells you nothing, it's just a distraction to get you to not like him. I don't even know his politics, but I'm ready to vote for him just because of the stupid ad!

Politics distracts voters from the actual shit going on in government. It keeps people arguing and fighting amongst themselves, while the "leaders" do whatever the fuck they want to us.

Politics keeps lower income people poor. Keep throwing just enough money at them to keep them alive, then tell them the other side hates them, then get their votes. It's all a big distraction game, but one that costs lives.

Usenet? :)

Seriously though, it’s probably social media.
