Reality Check

Did you see the article in the New York Times about how reality shows are getting “too real?”

A&E’s “Intervention” let someone drive drunk and I remember years ago MTV’s “Real World” let someone get so drunk she had alcohol poisoning. Producers and networks, or more specifically their lawyers, say they have no responsibility to step in to stop a crime. I’m sure that’s true. And I’m not saying they have even a moral obligation. That’s on them. They have a job to do and that’s to make compelling TV. Whatever.

Here’s my problem: we are watching this stuff. Not me, personally and obviously not you either, but we as a general public.
