Reality TV

I completely agree with this article that equates reality television with the incredibly disturbing Milgram experiments of the 1960's. I've always wondered about those who chose to advertise to the world that they are shallow and cutthroat for the reward of the most eligible bachelor or a sum of money. And I also wonder about those who find such debasing television shows entertaining. (Can you tell I'm not a big fan of reality television?) Anyway, check out the article, it's interesting.

our current season of big brother has had some moments that would be just as, or even more, disturbing than those experiments. it's getting viewers because of the more manipulative things they do to the 'contestants'. it's bizarre.

JT -
More evidence for ya.

Sarah -
I think it's so scary that people enjoy watching these shows and seeing everyone's misery so much. Way bizarre.
