Television legend Norman Lear says that although media is in its golden age, "everything is overdone."
Lear built his career as a television producer and writer with shows like "The Jeffersons," "Good Times," "All in the Family" and "Maude."
"I think excess is, overall, a negative," Lear said in an interview on CNBC's "Binge." "I think that has made us far more consumers than citizens. . . everything is for sale, including our political lives."
