*scratch* *scratch* *scratch* *scratch*
A graying muzzle appears from the thicket covered den and sniffs the air. A low, throaty growl precedes the appearance of the this lone lupine. Something’s wrong. Teeth bared in a snarl, you can tell he is about to howl.
I am at a loss. How can people NOT understand how we got here. Where the fuck have you been for (approximately) the last 20 years? Do you truly not see that we allowed our society to become what it has? Christ, we asked for it. We fucking paid for it because we invited it into our living rooms almost every night.
Please read this Wikipedia entry :
Reality television is a genre of television programming that documents supposedly unscripted real-life situations, and often features an otherwise unknown cast of individuals who are typically not professional actors, although in some shows celebrities may participate. It differs from documentary television in that the focus tends to be on drama, personal conflict, and entertainment rather than educating viewers.
Now, I am going to edit the entry with some minor changes:
Reality television is a genre of television programming that documents supposedly unscripted real-life situations, and often features an otherwise ill-equipped unknown cast of individuals who are typically not professional politicians actors, although in some offices shows celebrities may participate. It differs from a real government documentary television in that the focus tends to be on drama, personal conflict, and entertainment rather than running the country educating viewers.
Again, I ask you. Where the fuck have you been? I am sorry if this gets stuck in anyone’s craw, but people better look in the mirror and face up to what we allowed to happen. Let me ask you how many of you think it’s ok to watch Cake Wars but not Big Brother. Real Housewives of (NameYourFuckingCity) is trash, but I can’t miss Keeping Up With the Kardashians. But, Wulf, I only watch Kitchen Nightmares. Well then congratu-fucking-lations! Welcome to a real nightmare.
There is no way we would be here if we had not allowed the filth that runs this country to become normal and acceptable through the magic of TV. If I sound more than a little sanctimonious it is because I never bit. I couldn’t check my brain and heart at the door. I felt it from the beginning that reality TV was going to create a (shudder) new world order. Why would anyone want to watch as people bashed other people while lying about the reality of it all? So tell me…how does it make someone feel better watching people betray and berate each other in a faux-scripted contest between fame-seekers. We elevated people like Mama June and Honey-fucking-Boo-Boo to some quasi celebrity status when, in truth, they probably need help. Maybe Duck Dynasty vs. Bridezilla will be a Saturday morning cartoon so our kids can carry the torch and burn the planet down.
So if you think Teen Mom (oh yeah what a great fucking idea to promote) is harmless television, I hope you like the looks of this. Our bed. We made it. Sleep tight.
