I don’t have a T.V., but whenever I do road trips I’m like a kid with the clicker. I’ve recently realized how horrible T.V. has become. I think the movie “Network”, directed by Sidney Lumet, was genius for it’s exact premonition of where T.V. news would head.
One T.V. show practically stood out as INSANE! Contestants compete to win cosmetic surgery so they can have their “perfect wedding”. If they are cast off the show they are exiting with the host saying, “You will have a wedding, but it will not be perfect.”
How we, as a society, have come to this is amazing and disturbing. We should all voice our opinions on the impact this has on youth and self esteem.
